    I would suggest WordPress or Joomla. WordPress and Joomla both are popular CMS. Both are having open source software and are free to download. The base of these CMS is PHP and supports the MySQL database. Both are having number of free and paid templates and themes. Boith sites supports the multiple languages. Though both are similar, here are some differences between them -

    1. Installation - WordPress installations is quite easy and takes less time compare to Joomla. Joomla also has the easy installation but it takes more time and complicated than the WordPress.

    2. In-built themes and plugins - WordPress has the more number of free and easy to update the themes. When you will install the WordPress, it comes with the number of free themes. Also you can search the related theme and plugins from the admin panel of the WordPress. Joomla has the templates and extensions but those are not configured under Joomla admin panel, you will have to search them and after that you can install them.

    3. Support Cost - Support cost for Joomla is more because it's not easy to find the Joomla expert easily. There are online forums, communities but when you will need the expert at your end then it's costs more for the Joomla.

    4. Security - WordPress sites are the main target of the hackers. There are multiple security plugins and updates are available which secures your website from the hackers. Those are automatically get installed on the WordPress. Joomla has the extensions and new updates for securing the site. But we need to manually install them.

    5. Importing the data - Importing the data on the Joomla is the hard task compare to WordPress. Also migrating the Joomla from one version to another is very hectic task.

    You can choice any one of them

    Taking the advantage of the opportunity I can recommend you to contact ASPnix.com team (their hosting solutions are cool for e-commercing).
    The only host I've ever renewed my services with! Good prices, great uptime, and amazing support.

    I use Prestashop and sometimes CubeCart.

    But since you do have Prestashop experience why change? My opinion is that it is still the best eCommerce platform out there in terms of professional look and features, power and cost-effectiveness

    I used to use some of them. Actually, first of all, thank you people for sharing this information here. I remember when I’ve started to do eCommerce, I had no help and assistance at all. All I was doing I was doing on my own. Now it is easier, especially due to the fact that you are sharing here your experiences. I remember I’ve read a good article on top apps for eCommerce and I think that can also be useful for you here. At least, after I’ve read this, I have understood some things about this business and how in general things are working here. So, I hope that will help you too in your future eCommerce business.

    We are using magento 2 currently on version 2.4.0 take a look here pneumatig and tell me if it works fast for you? I have checked with various tools such as gtmetrix and google speed insights and they are showing that our website has 95/100 score on desktop, on mobile tho.. well it has way wrose rating, I don't know why because when I check with our company mobile's it works fine. One thing I can tell you that our website started working 40% faster when we upgraded from version 2.3.0 to 2.4.0. So if you have many products then magento is good engine to choose.

    Wix is the best overall choice – it's extremely beginner-friendly and has excellent eCommerce tools. Shopify is the best option for larger stores selling a range of products, BigCommerce is ideal for fast-growing stores, while Squarespace has the best-looking designs.
