A little more than five years ago, PrestaShop was created. Since then, our company has grown to become the world's most popular Open-source e-commerce solution by powering 125,000+ active online stores in more than 150 countries.
PrestaShop's success is due, in no small part, to its Community of more than 350,000 active members. Without their knowledge, support and continued commitment, there's no way we'd be able to announce today that we've just reached our two millionth download!
"I am so proud of the efforts the entire PrestaShop team has exerted these past five years. We have come a long way since 2007, and two million downloads is a crowning achievement and an 'open source' of pride for our entire Community," said Bruno Lévêque, PrestaShop's co-founder and CEO.
Currently, PrestaShop is being downloaded more than 3,500 times during any given 24-hour period, and numbers indicate that approximately 330 new online stores are opened every day with PrestaShop.
Through the years, our commitment to deliver the fastest, most efficient and user friendly e-commerce experience has never wavered. We've nurtured our company and watched it grow. We've made amazing advancements in technology, formed partnerships with global industry leaders and hosted e-commerce events all over the world.
Like all things IT, the world of e-commerce is changing. But it's thanks to everyone involved with PrestaShop -- from our inner team to our industry partners and Community -- that we are able to stand atop the commerce summit and say thank you all so very much for your support, ingenuity and commitment. It is because of you that we have reached two million downloads, and it's because of you we can deliver to the world the very best open-source e-commerce solution.
PrestaShop has big plans for the future. We will continue to advance our software so every PrestaShop merchant, developer, Community member and industry partner can continue to experience the very best e-commerce solution available.
Before we close, cheers to two million PrestaShop downloads! This amazing milestone is something you should all be very proud of.
Thanks again for everything you've done to help make PrestaShop the most widely used e-commerce solution in the world. We cannot wait to see what the future has in store.
