At a Glance: PrestaShop
Initially started as a student project at EPITECH—an IT school in Paris—PrestaShop is the world’s first free open-source e-commerce platform. If you’re looking to build and run an online store entirely in the cloud, a PrestaShop developer can help you get your project off the ground.
PrestaShop developers have the skills to build everything you need to manage your products, payments, manufacturers, shippers, and suppliers from the convenience of your Internet browser. They can help you set up an online store through PrestaShop Cloud or install the e-commerce solution stack the traditional way, onto a physical server. They can also build custom responsive themes, help you manage your shop via mobile devices, and set up payment integration with compatible payment gateways like Authorize.net or PayPal. A PrestaShop developer will typically have experience with MySQL, PHP, Windows, Linux, or Unix and a solid background in back-end web development. Whether you’re looking to port an existing online store into the PrestaShop platform, or build your first online store, PrestaShop developers on Upwork can help you build an e-commerce site that performs well on both desktop and mobile devices.
