As noted above, PrestaShop is free and open-source software available for download by anyone. This circumstance contributes to the formation of ways to monetize and generate income for the project development team.
To date, there are at least two known ways of receiving funds for the PrestaShop development team:
- an extension platform through which users and online store owners can purchase various add-ons for an additional fee that extends the e-commerce platform’s functionality built on top of PrestaShop
- partnerships with significant players in the e-commerce market. For example, such as PayPal or Google.
CMS PrestaShop has support for more than three hundred built-in functions. Among them are the following:
- product list management
- payment management
- management of the order processing and delivery system
- interaction with manufacturers and suppliers of goods
and many other functions
CMS PrestaShop, out of the box, has a primary theme in its arsenal, which is based on a responsive design. Thus, the site owner will have no problem supporting mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
For consumers and owners of sites built based on PrestaShop, it is possible to develop and install their themes, which allow you to change the site’s appearance depending on the niche and purpose.
It’s not a secret for anyone that with the help of additional modules, you can expand CMS PrestaShop’s basic functionality.
For this, users can install extension modules from the CMS control panel. It is possible to develop your add-ons based on your specific needs and tasks.
