Prestashop: just an other open source e-commerce system

Has anyone heard of an open source e-commerce system “Prestashop“? I bumped into it from business forum and it really inspired me. It does support multiple languages, multiple currencies and very friendly backend system. I’m now planning to use it for my future e-commerce projects.

Why don’t you check it out yourself and who know you might benefit from it.

Don’t forget to checkout their forum where thousand of developers all round the world developed some amazing plugins and modules such as: Protx payment gateway, Google Checkout etc

  1. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a rapid eCommerce deployment to check this out. Their use of the smarty template system makes page layouts a dream, especially for those used to traditional static page design – one of the major barriers for some people moving up to a dynamic database driven site.
