A wave of new features to help retailers sell better
Spring 2020 is now close, and new products have already started to bloom at PrestaShop. For the past few days, the nearly 300,000 PrestaShops have been able to take advantage of the latest innovations that our teams have developed, always with a view to meeting the needs of online retailers and shop managers.
Lookbook - Image gallery, or how to stage your products
This new module allows you to tag several products on the photos of your choice featuring one or more of your items. Your image gallery will inspire people to visit your shop and inform them about how products look in a familiar environment. The customer will then be able to order an article in a few clicks using the Lookbook module, without going through the classic navigation within the catalogue: a helpful touch that will improve your conversion rate.
Exit Popup, or how to encourage your customers to stay on your shop
Thanks to the new PrestaShop Exit Popup module, you will be able to customise the popup window displayed for visitors who are about to leave your shop. This small pop up window offers a temporary discount that should enable you to retain around 25% of your visitors.
The advantages of the Exit Popup module speak for themselves:
the ability to limit the number of baskets that are abandoned by visitors
an improved conversion rate with the right message at the right time
simple use for an efficient and immediate implementation: setting up and customising the module only takes a few minutes.
New features for the Premium Gift Card module
The new version of this module will undoubtedly be very much appreciated by users. In addition to being a complete solution for managing gift cards (a feature that is always effective in boosting sales and reaching new customers), the latest version of the Premium Gift Card module makes it possible to personalize the e-mail that is sent to the lucky recipient: immediate or deferred sending, writing a personalized message.
On the retailer side,several email templates are available, whose colours can be adapted to suit your shop or brand; the validity period and statistical analysis functions for gift cards are always available.
The PrestaShop Checkout payment solution is constantly being improved
Our new payment solution PrestaShop Checkout,unveiled last September, already enables many retailers to accept all common payment methods through a single module developed with PayPal: bank cards, PayPal wallet, as well as the 9 predominant local payment solutions in Europe (iDeal, Sofort, Bancontact, etc.).
An innovative payment solution, which we are constantly improving: here's the latest news.
Quick order placement with the Express Checkout feature
As its name suggests, this feature is primarily intended to save your customers time by reducing the number of steps required to complete an order in your shop. The Express Checkout feature allows visitors to connect directly with their PayPal account, saving them from having to enter their delivery address and create an account on your shop, two very important steps that can cause significant problems during the purchasing process. The Express Checkout feature is available for PrestaShop shops starting from version 1.7 equipped with the PrestaShop Checkout module.
Compatibility with PrestaShops version 1.6
Good news for retailers with one or more shops that are still running using the PrestaShop version 1.6: now, they can join the many retailers who have installed the software, and they too can install the PrestaShop Checkout module for free and benefit from all the advantages provided by our innovative solution to easily manage all types of payments:
A single integrated payment solution for credit cards, PayPal and many common local payment solutions
Access to a dedicated support team.

PrestaShop Checkout, the solution that enables retailers to accept most payment types, is now available in the United States, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. The PrestaShop Checkout solution is now available in 9 countries.
