Looking for ways to participate in the PrestaShop community? Here are nine ideas! As you may know, we dedicated our new mascot, Preston the puffin, to our community. This little bird is not just resourceful, but survives by living in large communities. Read on to see how you can contribute your best skills to helping the community thrive.
1. Code on GitHub
Speak PHP? Help add functionality or create a seamless user experience by contributing code on GitHub. Without the help of our contributors, we wouldn’t have a growing list of over 300 features -- offered at no charge!
2. Translate with CrowdIn
Speak a second language? Help us translate PrestaShop into your native language on CrowdIn. Not interested in writing copy? Vote on translations others have submitted. To date, our community members have already helped make PrestaShop available in: Bulgarian, Croatian, Dutch, Norwegian, Slovenian and Swedish.
3. PrestaShop Forge
Have an idea for a software feature? Or have a bug you’d like to report? Search for and submit your request on our Forge. Each ticket is reviewed by a member of our team then prioritized.
The PrestaShop forum is one of the most active ecommerce communities around the world. With more than 800,000 members, conversations happen in a multitude of languages including English, French, Spanish and Italian.
5. Give us feedback on our documentation
On most pages of your PrestaShop Back Office, you’ll find a help section dedicated to helping you use that website. At the bottom of the help section, please leave us some feedback. This helps us understand what information is useful and what we need to add or remove.
6. Build themes
PrestaShop merchants are always on the lookout for the latest design trends for their website. If you like to create new designs, run the code through our code validator, then start selling them on PrestaShop addons, and watch your earnings roll in!
7. Build modules
Just like with themes, you can build your own modules with specific functions. Need help funding your project? We launched an integration fund dedicated to helping our community innovate and create modules that are adapted to each local market. Find out what we’re looking for, then apply online.
8. Join our User Club!
Want to share your experience and opinions with the PrestaShop product team? Join our User Club. Each month, we’ll send out a short survey to about an ecommerce-specific topic. In exchange, you’ll get sneak peeks about what’s coming up next.
9. Become a PrestaShop Ambassador
Do you want to become a local representative for PrestaShop? We’re enlisting your help to host local meetups, give us product feedback, publish guest blog posts and more. Apply to be an Ambassador today. If selected, you’ll get our support and maybe even some swag.
