There are two ways to use Prestashop with Sello, you can either connect an already existing Prestashop store located on an external server to Sello, or we can create one for you from scratch. All we need is a name and we’ll take care of the rest.
Having a Prestashop store created for you means we will also host it for you, storing it on one of our servers. We will give the store a name of your choice and give it a temporary domain name, which you are welcome to keep if you’d like. If not, simply register your own domain name and we will help you point it in the right direction. Once created, the store is considered your own personal property, so should you decide to move to another hosting provider, we will help you take it with you.
If you wish to connect an external Prestashop store to Sello, you need to create an API key and input this in Sello among other things. When the integration itself is taken care of, we will automatically import things like categories and currencies. Now all that’s left is to make sure that the products are present in Sello. As luck would have it, we have a dedicated Prestashop import feature that lets you import all your products, creating them in the Sello inventory automatically.
There is no limit to how many webshops you can have connected to Sello, this also goes for the number of webshops you can have created for you, and all of the above scenarios are entirely free of charge and is available to you as part of your Sello premium account plan.
Prestashop is an open-source webshop platform that was released in 2008. Prestashop is a high-performance webshop system that offers a large selection of themes and modules.
We have been working with the Prestashop platform since 2014 and in our experience, getting started using the Prestashop package is easy. The system is built to support a high degree of customization while still conforming to sellers not wanting to spend time tweaking every aspect of their store.
Should you want to switch hosting providers we can move the Prestashop store to one of our own servers, we offer web hosting services as part of our premium account plan, so we will do this entirely for free. The process of migrating to one of our servers is something we have done countless times, from many different systems, so we can ensure a quick and painless move.
