FAQ PrestaShop vs Shopify
What is a CMS?
A CMS (Content Management System) is a software that helps you create and modify the content of your website without any coding skills required.
As both CMS solutions, PrestaShop and Shopify will simplify the task of creating your virtual store without having to code it on your end.
What is a SaaS?
A SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), like Shopify, is hosted on a provider's server, accessible remotely (e.g. through a web browser), and for which billing is done in the form of a subscription. With SaaS, end-users do not have to spend time installing the software.
What is open source and which are the advantages of an open source software?
Open source refers to a source code, design plans, or content that can be accessed, studied, modified, or redistributed unlimitedly.
PrestaShop is an open source CMS that will allow you to modify the source code and make your store evolve without limits according to your needs.
On the contrary, Shopify is a proprietary code software which means that it does not give the possibility to access and modify its source code. As a result, the e-merchant is not the full owner of its store and data while having to pay a fee to preserve them.
