99 Designs is one of the best known online marketplaces for crowd-sourced graphic design. This resource is the great opportunity for the designers to hone their skills. Taking part in the competition, the designer tries to do his best to make the best logo, icon, etc. In the case of the winning designer not also gets the competition prize, but often also gets hired by the client for a long term job (e.g. if the competition was to draw the little two page comics, the client might ask the winner to draw the whole comics book). To start the competition, the client has to fill the brief where he/she specifies the task. To formulate the task as accurately as possible the client answers the questions about it. Then it is necessary to choose the design package. It is possible to choose the economy pack where the prize is smallest, and the number of available designs is less. For those who cares about the design quality, there is the most expensive Platinum package. Only the best designers involved in such competitions. Besides the client gets the dedicated contest manager. Running the contest, it is possible to mark the appropriate designs and make designers to work on them, to make them better. So when the contest is finished, you usually get the desired product. 99 designs may be attractive to the designers because the contest prices here are rather high. There is the minimum price that client should pay for the design of a certain type. Because the client should fill the brief, the task is usually well described. There is also a Payoneer payment available. It is the great option for the countries that don't fully work with PayPal. Besides, the Payoneer withdrawal rates are lower than on the other payment systems.

Pros :

  • A money back guarantee if the client is not satisfied with the contest results.
  • Variety of design options is available.

Cons :

  • It is not possible to find the appropriate designer directly.

Prestashop is absolutely a great solution if you want to create an online store or start on eCommerce, I've used it a few times for some stores, and it's easy to implement and use. It has a bunch of customizable options, and you don't need a deep understanding of programming or development to use it which is great. You can manage your templates and almost every important section of the platform, but it's limited if you are not planning to pay for a good template.

Pros :

Here a couple of things that I think Prestashop is doing well:

  • User experience and usability: The platform is simple and easy to use, it doesn't matter if you know about programming or something similar, you will be able to manage your store without major problems.
  • Statistics: Some of the things that I liked more about PrestaShop is that you can see your statistics in your own admin panel (back office), I mean you can see your sells, visits, orders and statistical numbers about it.
  • Manage clients and discounts: One of the things that I like about PrestaShop is the way that you can manage your discounts and clients, you can see which type of clients are the most active and other things that can help you organize your targets and SEO. Also, you can set rules for discounts really easy.
  • Installing Prestashop is really easy, I was surprised when I had to set up the whole thing because it was concise and simple, a really good and non-traumatic experience compared to othe

Cons :

Somethings I didn't like about Prestashop when I used it:

  • Finding good templates for free is hard, I wasted a lot of time trying to find a good theme for the page and couldn't find anything good honestly, after a couple of hours and searching I found one, but it was a little buggy. If you want a decent theme, you'll have to pay for it.

    99 designs is a platform for all the freelancers who prefer to share their illustrations, logos, graphic work or animations. This is what I was told from my colleague, since I am a creative designer I though this could get me paid for my hard work. She did shared about the contents and I was like I think my work is good I should get selected, I paid for monthly subscription. applied in several contents, did great work, even I had a buyer. He said nice work he asked me to share more sample work so I did, he was impressed, He hired me. It was a long project and my first one here I was so happy that finally the subscription fee is paying off, after completion of my work when I delivered him the work it was marked done, or wasn't completed.andnbsp;The buyer didn't came online for several days I was worried then the next day I tried logging in for like thousand times and all I get was account suspended. I complained the customer support but they were least bothered and least concern about the issue. then later they even stopped replying, I messaged them several times yet there was nothing I could here from them. please DO NOT USE THIS SITE. They are running a scam.they'll keep the money and your hard work will go waste.andnbsp;

    Pros :

    • It is a good platform for only buyers they can get their desire work, without loosing their time and work.

    Cons :

    • They are a scam, suspend accounts out of nowhere.
    • It is hard to get selected, the competition between the freelancers is very though.
    • Competitors often copy original work of other person and would claim that it's his. (happened with a friend)
    • Expensive subscription which is worth nothing but waste of time.

    There’s nothing wrong with working 1-1 with a professional graphic designer if you can find a good one. But if you are on a budget and are looking to get some design work done that you are happy with, then you should definitely give 99Designs a shot. The site is easy to use, and you will get a wealth of designs to pick from.

    PrestaShop is a platform that is overall cheap and extremely flexible IF you have the skills to manage it. After reviewing the PrestaShop platform, we believe it should be a top contender in your comparison and analysis of the best ecommerce platforms only if you have a good understanding of programming knowledge and skills.

    I have three stores now with Prestashop, which I have been using for over six years. I would say that the older versions worked perfectly well and I had no problems. I would have given 5 stars in all areas. (I am talking version 1.6.0.9 or thereabouts) Unwittingly "upgrading" to the latest versions, I'm now on 1.6.0.14, has rendered Prestashop almost unworkable. It only works now for me thanks to the brilliant paid add-on Store Manager. My two sites with fewer products - 20 and 1200 respectively, work fine still. My main site, which is my main source of income has 4,500 products. I cannot edit or save products (which is where Store Manager comes in). The search indexing does not work. CSV product import will not work. Database backups always time out. There are frequent errors with Payment gateways. Every recommended update usually causes new problems. All this despite the fact that I am using the default template and have made no code changes. Support is absolutely zero. My problems have been well discussed on the forums for over two years and are common. The programmers do nothing. I am not a programmer. I have spent over $2000 on programming help over the last two years just to keep my site running - and Prestashop is supposed to be "Open Source" and free. I would highly recommend Prestashop if you have few products, but I would say that if you start to go over 2000 then in my experience it simply does not work. The programmers are too busy making add ons which they make money on, than getting the basic shell to work. Transferring to another cart now would be a nightmare, largely because of the huge number of product photos, I think about 30,000 now.
