Set Up a Market-Ready E-Commerce Store in Seconds
Open source e-commerce solutions provider PrestaShop has unveiled a free cloud platform that enables merchants to set up an online store with just a few clicks.
The platform, dubbed the PrestaShop Cloud, is a fully hosted and supported version of the PrestaShop e-commerce platform. With this freemium option, merchants will be able to avoid financial and technical barriers that can get in the way of launching an e-commerce business.
“PrestaShop is the first in the market to combine open source and cloud technology into one, completely free e-commerce solution,” says PrestaShop Founder Bruno Leveque. “Since the first version, our software has helped merchants process more than $15 billion in sales. Our freemium business model enables us to be uniquely positioned in the market. We can provide feature-rich e-commerce technology at the lowest cost possible while our competitors charge license fees or take a percentage of revenue directly from merchants. We’re disrupting this industry and making it possible for more merchants to sell their products online with the highest margins possible.”
