hi Addo,

We are developers (we are not looking for any dev work), marketers and also have our own websites. For a startup e-commerce platform Shopify is hard to beat. We also use WordPress/WooCommerce but most people cannt develop a store on that platform without hiring a developer, whereas with Shopify I have seen some great sites that people have made themselves. Shopify you pay as you go, WordPress you have an upfront development cost. From my point of view as an online marketer Shopify does everything I need and does it well eg SEO, Facebook and Google ad pixels and tags, Mailchimp integration. Everything! Plus Shopify sites seem to load faster than WordPress. here's an online comparisonI jus found pify vs Prestashop, I'll look for another one for you https://comparisons.financesonline.com/shopify-vs-prestashop If you choose Shopify as a platform you will not be disappointed, it's really very good

It depends whether you are interested to go for a hosted or self-hosted platform. 

PrestaShop requires your own hosting but you can customize it a lot more than Shopify.
