Post-2020, the number of eCommerce stores has exploded, with almost every business and company offering a digital platform for customers to view, shop, and order their products or services without going to a physical store. While a significant chunk of these online stores are based on the Shopify model, there are multiple other platforms that companies are using to help stand out in this highly competitive space and generate high-quality eCommerce leads.
An open-source eCommerce platform from France, PrestaShop is widely used to create an eCommerce website or online store. It was launched in 2007 and is today used by 251,047 eCommerce companies (among roughly 25M globally), with a global market share of 2.23%. The popularity of PrestaShop is thanks to its support for over a dozen languages, which it rolled out shortly after its launch. The platform strongly focuses on creating international sites that are also highly localized as per language and other requirements for each geography.
