The State of PrestaShop

PrestaShop is an open-source ecommerce platform that originated in France in 2005. PrestaShop supported over a dozen languages shortly after launch and has always had a strong focus on internationalization.

PrestaShop hosting is decentralized, so it is a little more difficult to identify all merchants using the platform. At present, we are aware of 200,304 live stores running on the PrestaShop platform.

Third-Party Technologies

Many PrestaShop merchants run third-party technologies on their store in addition to apps from the PrestaShop App Store. We're tracking 134 different technologies that have 347,499 collective installs on PrestaShop stores.

Here are the top 10 third-party technologies, ordered by number of installs, across all PrestaShop stores.

Top-level Domain Distribution

Most PrestaShop stores use a .com domain. This is not surprising since alternate top-level domains have only recently been introduced and there is still a certain cachet associated with .com domains.

That said, you'll find stark regional differences in certain countries. In Australia, .com.au is the most common top-level domain. This is the exception however as .com domains dominate in virtually all other countries.
