Which eCommerce platform is best?
I want to build an e-commerce store for my client and I need your opinions, Which platform should I go with, my client has approx 1000 to 10,000 products.
I found this comparison blog post: https://www.cloudways.com/blog/woocommerce-vs-prestashop/,
Where they recommend WooCommerce because it has managed to integrate all the good things about WordPress. And PrestaShop, because it has been around for a long time.
Does anyone here who has experience building a huge e-commerce website? I need your suggestions.
You can use OT Commerce. It's ready-made online shops with Chinese goods from Taobao / 1688. And Chinese products are one of the most sought-after in the whole world!
Online stop will be ready in 3 days. Customer support will help with site settings. It includes wide functionality for effective work with customers: personal account, showcase and product catalog, order system, currency, prices and delivery settings, connecting various payment methods. Site can be translated into any language. Adding and updating of goods is carried out automatically.

According to me Woocommerce is the best. I am not saying Prestashop is not good but they have their limitations and in the recent time after the evolution of eCommerce Woocommerce grow fast. One of the main reason I will never recommended Prestashop is they are not fully SEO focused.
You can go and just take a look at their URL system which I never understand why they have. Eg. www.example.com/123-example. In Woocommerce you will have SEO friendly URL structure because of Wordpress CMS system.
And I never saw any PrestaShop site in the top 10 of the google search results for any competitive keywords. Woocommerce offers all the 360 view strategy which you need for your business to start from scratch. So I will always recommended Woocommerce over PrestaShop.
If you want take a look at this Woocommerce site ( https://www.zakarto.com/ ) with more than 10000 products which is doing good and offering reliable eCommerce services.
If you have any doubt let me know.
You can use Shopify for building your e-commerce website. Thanks Visit my website: https://excelsiorpowercleaning.com/
There's no real right or wrong answer here. It's USUALLY preference.
I would learn the true pros and cons of the platforms and find the best fit for your client. For example, Woocommerce being open-source can give you more flexibility with custom features that may generally rely on an app within Shopify. If that app doesn't exist (which is growingly rare these days) then Woo might be a better fit. Cost can also be an important factor. Hosting is pretty affordable these days for Woo sites with decent traffic relative to your revenue.
I enjoy both platforms and my team has had extensive experience in both.
If you don't mind about the pricing, go for Shopify. It has everything you need, including essential features, a friendly and intuitive user interface, as well as many apps to do more tasks.
I haven't heard of PretaShop so I'm not really able to give you much feedback there. However, I have worked on Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce and even Magento websites before.
I'm a huge WordPress advocate so WooCommerce is probably my top recommendation. I really like Shopify as well. But what I often find aggravating is that almost any meaningful functionality you'd like to add to it is a plugin that costs an additional monthly fee. It's kind of obnoxious. WooCommerce being WordPress affiliated gives you access to so many other great site functionalities that are often free.
Hope that's helpful!
