Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

You are the manager of the PrestaBox unit at PrestaShop. Can you
describe your everyday mission in a few words?

My role is to manage our hosted offer (SaaS): continuously improving
its content for our users, to help and accompany them every day to
develop their businesses, and of course develop new features.
Do you work also on the solution development? Do you have specific
points at your charge?

Yes, I have worked on the solution for over two years now,
particularly on points relating to performance and safety. We treat
with a special attention these key points.
Would you have any tips to give us?

Yes! smile If you are a merchant, set up a second authentication on
your Back-Office with htaccess / htpasswd, or ask your service
provider to integrate it. And of course, never give your passwords to
anybody wink
Developers, keep in mind the security problems whatsoever in SQL
queries, processing files, data sent by the client etc.
Why the idea of PrestaBox?

We want to democratize e-commerce for all, including for e-merchants
to be, who do not want to have to manage any technical aspect.
Indeed, it is more profitable for him and his business to devote his
time to managing his shop, his commands, and its customer
What are the benefits for merchants to get a shop through PrestaBox?

PrestaBox is a real value for our merchants.
Indeed, all the technical aspects like: hosting, maintenance, updates
etc... are entrusted to our professional team, the online merchant can
focus on his work: his sales.
Is PrestaBox SEO efficient?

Yes, it is very good, as well as for a classic PrestaShop shop smile
First, we recommend to the sellers to buy a domain name related to
their activity, and to refine the editorial content of their shop
(home page, product description, categories ...) and the configuration
of their meta-tags and pages titles. This is really what makes the
strength of a quality SEO!
I bought modules on PrestaStore and I want to install them into on my
PrestaBox shop. How should I proceed?

We strive to simplify the shop creation for e-sellers. Therefore, we
interfaced PrestaStore and PrestaBox, so that the installation of a
module or theme is summed up in one click. Indeed, when a merchant
gets a module on PrestaStore, it automatically appears in his shop=92s
