PrestaShop is premium shop software for the international market

You can easily lose yourself in variety of store providers when it comes to developing an online shop. PrestaShop is an open source e-commerce platform that has been in operation since 2007 and has had an ever growing community of users ever since. It is based on the PHP scripting language. The developer of PrestaShop is from France and has had the shop software translated into more than 60 languages. The system has now spread beyond the borders of Europe and is now used on more than 200,000 online shops worldwide. The PrestaShop shop system is free from licensing costs; the manufacturer built the system to be modular and earns money from the extension packages which are offered as a pay-for module.

PrestaShop: popular all over the world with e-commerce platforms

Due to the wide range of available languages, PrestaShop is especially well-suited to international projects, meaning online shops which are operated all over the world. The system does not need to be painstakingly translated into other languages. Companies with smaller budgets should first inform themselves which features are already available in PrestaShop and which need to be purchased as an expensive additional module. PrestaShop works as a stand-alone system, and more than 310 features are included as standard. Some additional functions can be retrofitted through different modules if necessary.

In addition to standard features such as a comprehensive catalogue management, order management and flexible shipping options, there are also more ways that PrestaShop goes above and beyond the capacity of other shop systems, for example with a product and price comparison. Users can then compare the features and prices of several products, specific URLs are created for this so that the users can send their results to others.
