Pretashop began as a project for young students at Epitech, School of Computing, from November 2005 to February 2007. Those students were M. Morel, M. Saintot, M. Da-Silva, M. Borde und B. Leveque. The project adviser was Igor Schlumberger from LeGuide.
The initial project translated into two languages (French, English), as phpopenstore (POS). The developers decided to realise the shop solution as open source poject during conception. It was developed in collaboration with several small dealers.
The company was founded in Paris, France, in 2007 by Igor Schlumberger and Bruno Leveque (CEO)
PrestaShop is based on the scripting language PHP and uses the database system MySQL in order to save data. The design allows the division of function and representation using templates based on Smarty, so its appearance can easily be modified. Those templates may be offered freely by developers, or they may be offered or purchased via the marketplace Prestashop Addons.
Further, the system works modular and is therefore resource-saving. Functions and extensions can be added or removed via the installation or deinstallataion of singular modules. Both, the payment procedures as well as the shipping service providers, are implemented via modules.
In order to reach the ideal work flow regarding your shipping process additional extensions are necessary. Such extensions depend on youd shop system as well as your version. At this point we would like to point out the before mentioned extensions and offer them to you.
In order to purchase an extension please contact us via e-mail Info@ybm-deutschland.de.
