Previously, InstaCustoms operated on a PrestaShop eCommerce site, initially a well-established setup. Unfortunately, the platform experienced significant drawbacks due to suboptimal development, resulting in a live site plagued with bugs. This issue led to a considerable loss of approximately 30% in monthly sales. Additionally, the site faced performance challenges during campaigns, struggling to handle increased traffic on its own server.

In addressing these challenges, a comprehensive evaluation of the business and its functionalities revealed that both PrestaShop and Shopify are commendable eCommerce platforms. The decision-making process aimed at minimizing monthly costs for enhanced savings. While PrestaShop exhibited compatibility with custom functionalities, Shopify emerged as a robust solution with responsive server performance, especially during high traffic periods. It's essential to strike a balance between preserving existing custom features and leveraging Shopify's scalability while accommodating the business's financial considerations.
