Since its creation in 2007, PrestaShop has helped thousands of merchants achieve success through their online stores. Over the years, many new features have been added to the open source software thanks to its unique ecosystem. The latest evolution is our Cloud version, which we were proud to release earlier this year. With no hosting fees, PrestaShop Cloud allows merchants anywhere to create a store in a single click.
Each innovation is inspired by our desire to simplify ecommerce and make it accessible to everyone across the world. The 800,000 members of our incredible community and our shared passion for ecommerce are what make it all possible. Our success is driven by our community via the PrestaShop Addons Marketplace. This year our contributors will earn over $5,000,000 selling their modules and themes on our marketplace!
We want every developer to be able to give the emerchants in his or her country the power to easily achieve ecommerce success. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of a $1,000,000 Integration Fund dedicated to our community and intended to reinforce the positive relationships with developers that have contributed to our shared success.
$1,000,000 to invest in our global community
Using this Fund, we hope to build a catalog of local modules so that every merchant, no matter where they are, has access to the basic features necessary to run a successful eCommerce activity in his or her country (payment modules, shipping modules, modules for local marketplace connection and modules to simplify administrative procedures).
How can you get involved?
It’s simple. Whether you’re a new contributor or you’ve been with us for a while, just send us your idea for a local module.
If your idea and skills convince us to select your project, you’ll be eligible to receive funding to cover your development costs (this amount is determined on a case-by-case basis). Once your module is developed and online on PrestaShop Addons, you’ll receive this personalized funding, as well as 30% of the revenues on your module’s sales (until the PrestaShop’s total commission on your module reaches the amount of the awarded funding), then 70% on all following sales.
"I first developed a shipping solution for my uncle’s e-shop that I now sell on Addons Marketplace. I ended up selling it almost 2,000 times”, says Emmanuel M, Addons contributor. Instead of taking on the costs of a custom-made development, merchants can buy modules on Addons Marketplace and benefit from high-volume availability, reducing costs by a factor of more than 20. For developers, the Addons Marketplace offers an incredible opportunity to significantly increase revenues. The Integration Fund was created to drive module development and foster positive relationships between community members and PrestaShop.
