Although PrestaShop is very flexible platforms but there are some of the drawbacks that exists from the beginning of the shopping cart. One of such drawbacks is label printing for shipping purpose. When a merchant is receiving the order in the amount of 100 or even less, the manual process of printing label is tiresome. In manual printing, admin has to copy paste the information of the customers’ form back office and then paste it on the shipping packages.
PrestaShop is an open source shopping cart e.g. anyone with a knowledge of PHP, MySQL and CSS can make changes in it to adopt it for the own purpose. PrestaShop was started in 2007 and now it’s latest version 1.7x is usable on ecommerce stores. Users have reported that still 1.7x is still not stable as compared to 1.6x i.e. users are facing bugs and errors while configuration and tweaking. Therefore, being a reputed company in PrestaShop, FMEModules always recommend its customers to stay on 1.6x until more stability will be added to the 1.7x.
Today the biggest threat for online stores is spammers and hackers. These people can harm your store in a drastic way. The simple loss of spam is overloaded servers that finally result in handing out your server and store will be down. The biggest losses may be any e.g. stealing out the credit card information and credentials of your customers or they can simply hack your store and can display any type of false information.
The idea that is now trending in the market is to hide the shop from general public i.e. they will only see a login page and they need to give the credentials to get into it. Some other merchants allow access to only certain pages of the store and blocking the rest. The idea is very useful for those shop owners who have a strong customer base with limited inventory. So they are allowing access to buy from the store to only their VIP users.
The topic that we selected today for questions answers session is basically an advance functionality of PrestaShop and that is File upload option at different pages of PrestaShop. Being a merchant, sometimes you need to get some files from customers in the form of PDF, excel, video, MP3, JPEG or any of the other file format.
