Free PHP E-Commerce Software: PrestaShop
PrestaShop, although it is in beta, is a complicated open source e-commerce solution.
Having a very powerful back-end, store admins can manage the inventory, orders, customers & payments easily. System never limits you as it supports unlimited categories, sub-categories & image pictures. Sub-admin users can be created with different permissions so when someone can only track the inventory another admin can be limited to processing the orders.
PrestaShop is a multilingual e-commerce software that any number of languages can be added to the system. As it is in beta status, there are exciting upcoming features like product comparison, wishlist or multiple websites.
This PHP shopping cart offers very nice features in the"front-end" like:
- Special deals (price reductions, gift vouchers)
- Text-message alerts
- Featured products on homepage
- Free shipping offers
- Cross-selling (Accessories)
- Order out-of-stock items
