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.
Here a couple of things that I think Prestashop is doing well:
Somethings I didn't like about Prestashop when I used it:
There is currently a huge amount of competition in the drag-and-drop website builder and CMS market. Webs is one of the big players, along with Wix, Weebly, SquareSpace and of course, WordPress. With such a large choice of tools available, the main tool chosen depends on preference mostly. However, there are definitely a few reasons to choose Webs over some of the others. First of all, there are a substantial set of design templates to choose from, complete with their own unique CSS styling. Having said that, however, some of these templates are somewhat outdated when compared with the templates available for Squarespace and Weebly. Another reason to choose Weebly is that there are a fair amount of SEO options such as the ability to add custom meta titles, tags, and keywords. The code generated by the site builder is also SEO-friendly and plays nicely with Google, Yahoo and Bing. This is of utmost importance for almost any website. Another reason to choose Webs, is that it is theoretically possible to create a website from inception to hosting, for no cost at all. This is because Webs offers a completely free plan, unlike certain CMS platforms such as Shopify. The disadvantage of this, however, is that websites created on the free plan are limited to ten web pages. Furthermore, the free plan does not have much choice in terms of eCommerce-related tools, and an upgrade is necessary if the website's main purpose is to be for the selling of goods. One of unique features of Webs, is that a mobile-responsive version of a website can be created automatically, using the same WYSIWYG site builder. This is not a common feature found in other CMS and website builders. Besides this, Webs also allows users to easily create card-based UI layouts, which are also excellent for mobile responsiveness. All in all, Webs is a great platform, however, it is mostly suited for general-purpose websites, rather than dynamic ones, as unlike WordPress and Drupal; it is not possible to edit the generated HTML and CSS code.

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.More about PrestaShop

Webs.com is a good website builder with a rich set of features that can’t be found anywhere else. The way you can organize your site’s design stands out. The carousel image slider is pretty unique and will make your website look very professional.However, at this time some parts of the user interface feel a bit inconsistent as they’ve been taken over from the old site builder version. Let’s hope Webs will polish everything out in the future.More about Webs

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 126.96.36.199 or thereabouts) Unwittingly "upgrading" to the latest versions, I'm now on 188.8.131.52, 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.More about PrestaShop
