PrestaShop Boasts Great New Features in Version 1.1

Hot on the heels of the recent PrestaShop Developer Resources announcement we thought it would be a good idea to look at some of the great new features that the forthcoming 1.1 RC1 PrestaShop release will bring to the store owner.

The main improvements (apart from some long awaited bug fixes, and core improvements) are a fantastic set of new features to further enhance the appearance and usability of PrestaShop.

The major Back Office improvements come with the release of the statistics modules, and I can assure you that if this is a feature you feel has been missing in the past, it certainly won't disappoint.

Some nice examples of what to expect:

Main Statistics Screen

Visitor Demographics

Visitor Browser and Operating System

Along with these Back Office improvements there are a number of Front Office additions that further enhance the usability of your site from the customer's perspective. The main highlights which can be seen in action by visiting or live demo store are:

  • Customer Wish List
  • Rewards scheme (offering loyalty discount points)
  • Customer referrals (affiliate) scheme
  • Facility to offer a "Birthday" present to your customers!

PrestaShop is truly developing intot he most user and owner firendly open source shopping cart solution out there.
