On Saturday, PrestaShop has been raised on France Inter, a famous French radio, as “an excellent software for creating online shop” by Bernard Cathelat, sociologist, co-founder of CCA (Center for Advanced Communication – Center of sociological trends applied to marketing) in the show “Entrepreneurs’ Street.”.

For Francophones people, this interview is available ici.


Going back to forum, Spanish, Vietnamese, Indonesian and Czech communities, becoming increasingly important and being increasingly cramped in their respective sub-forums, we decided to create a forum dedicated to each.Their implementation should be completed during the day.


To finish, you may have noticed that we have been rather quiet lately … Between us, it is because we are concocting something for the month of June …

A surprise that we will announce very soon! wink


See you soon for more news!
