Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am i the process of finding a replacement for an old web-shop (Compumail.dk), we are looking at a lot of possibility's and one of them is PrestaShop.

The site has in the area of 100.000 products, and we need a solution that can handle this number growing (200.000 - 600.000) in the coming years, i found this: http://blog.egrovesys.com/ecommerce-development/magento-prestashop-latest-comparison where it says that it can only handle 25.000 products.

So can a PrestaShop be made to handle 100.000+ products, and preform well?

Thanks in advance.

Limitations of SQL based problems can always be altered thought development means. You should ask this on the prestashop forum. Your likely going to get a more catered response. –  bybe Apr 22 '13 at 19:36
+1 the main problem is going to be with the db, to do with scaling the db and making efficient calls, the actual script shouldn't have problems, and there shouldn't be performance issues unless you try and display vast number of products on 1 page, in which case you'd get problems with long executation times. –  sam Apr 22 '13 at 20:11
@MortenGrue If you're still look for an answer! If you are looking for easy to use and customize cart solution that also scales very well, then I recommend you to try nopCommerce (opensource asp.net based solution). With one performance module (nopaccelerate.com) that integrate very well with Solr, we have scaled it to support more than 20 million products. –  Herin Dec 26 '13 at 11:01
