Reasons To Migrate From Magento To Prestashop

by Melanie J. Ultimate shopping cart migration tool provider
We all know that, Magento is the leading e-commerce platform in the world with its market share accounts for 26% compare to others. However, there is enough evidence to prove that the leading one is not always the best one. Besides advantages that makes Magento to be the leading e-commerce site, there are still many disadvantages of Magento:

Server requirements and resources

Modularity and expandability unfortunately often mean high demands on server parameters. This is the case. Not many servers can manage this platform. The list of hosting companies that can accommodate for the script's needs will be a lot shorter than in case of the other online stores.


Even simple administration tasks like adding a new product may not be as straightforward as in other scripts, e.g. Quick.Cart. Learning its functionalities takes a lot of time and sometimes even takes tutoring from a system's expert.

Installation and modification

The script is not very user friendly and requires an experienced programmer to modify it. Quick.Cart and PrestaShop are much simpler in use and making changes, but they don't offer as great abundance of functionalities as Magento.
Prestashop is also known as one of the most popular e-commerce platform in the world parallels to Magento and WooCommerce. If Magento is best fit with large business, Prestashop on the other hand, is most suitable with medium or small business. 

What makes Prestashop to be loved?


When compared to systems like Magento, PrestaShop's administration panel is quite intuitive and easy to master. It's especially important for those who are just starting their Internet adventure.


There's a large group of users contributing to a good support system in discussion boards and the like.

Installation and modification

The script is based on a popular template system called "Smarty". It's well known to many designers and programmers what will make graphics modifications easy for them. If you're not the programmer type you'll easily find one to do whatever you need to be done for you.


There are many functionalities built in PrestaShop. Many of them are no match for Magento, but in most cases they are sufficient for beginners and intermediate online shop owners. Many of the functionalities you would miss can be installed, they often are free. If you still can't find what you need, you can surely find a programmer who knows the system to add options you require.


PrestaShop is quite efficient and does not put high demands on server resources, especially when considering how much it has to offer. A built-in page indexation system is an advantage. It's not as efficient as Quick.Cart but works definitely faster than Magento. The script's efficiency to offered functionalities ratio is quite good.
For those reasons, it promotes Magento users to transfer Magento to Prestashop if they are holding a small scale business.
