OC2PS Posted February 22, 2011 Share Posted February 22, 2011 I have been using Opencart for 2 years now, and now that the development of that cart seems in doldrums, in spite of an oft-promised revamped v 1.5.0, I am looking to move to a suitable solution.I must say that I am fairly impressed with the feature list of Prestashop. Are all the features listed at http://www.prestashop.com/en/allfeatures/ part of the core?One of the reasons that makes me ask is that add-on modules are typically quite expensive. Since I've been using several open source software (Opencart, Wordpress, phpbb, SMF, etc) for a while which have a very rich selection of free extensions and when the extensions are commercial, they are "reasonably" priced. By comparison, most PS extensions seem (pardon the expression) obscenely priced, considering that the core offering is GPL. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't mind paying for additional, esp. custom functionality, but seems like even tiny tweaks are priced at $50 and above in the PS add-ons store. Is this observation correct or do I have a completely warped world view?Finally, if there are others on these forums that have moved from OC to PS, please can you share some insights? What made you move, what important things to keep in mind, what challenges you faced, how did you migrate the data, etc... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
