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:

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

We like WebStarts, because it's a powerful CMS that is within reach of just about anyone. Business owners can create their own e-commerce site, and look great doing it. With the easy-to-use interface and customizability, WebStarts should be high on the consideration list for those who want a budget-friendly alternative to an agency site, and who want the accessibility of a drag-and-drop editor.More about WebStarts

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 22.214.171.124 or thereabouts) Unwittingly "upgrading" to the latest versions, I'm now on 126.96.36.199, 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

WebStarts offers an easy-to-use builder and a fair bit of customization for those hoping to stick with a free account. Unfortunately, it ends there. Too much control is given in unnecessary areas. Non-features and unclear premium incentives seem to exist only to seem competitive against other services who are more upfront with their pricing. With outdated themes and a struggling feature list to begin with, maybe even free isn’t such a great value in this case. I’d recommend skipping WebStarts and instead choosing a service that is more current in their design, thoughtful in execution, and upfront in pricing.More about WebStarts
