PrestaShop and eBay have agreed to expand their partnership and business development activities in Europe. After already establishing a partnership in France, Italy, Spain and the UK, the two companies now will partner up in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Merchants using PrestaShop’s ecommerce software now can rapidly integrate their online store with the eBay marketplace.
Thanks to the partnership, online merchants can select which of their product categories they want to share on eBay. They can also customize the product information, and fully manage the store inventory between both platforms. PrestaShop’s CEO, Benjamin Teszner, is very happy with the results they got from their partnership with eBay the last two years. “The feedback from our user community is overwhelmingly positive. We’re delighted to expand the geographic scope of this partnership so we can provide the best ecommerce experience for our merchants in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.”
According to Daniela Nalesso, Head of Partner Business for eBay Germany, the success in other European countries has shown that “more and more retailers are seeing multichannel trade as a possibility of expanding their business and providing their customers with a seamless and easy shopping experience.”
PrestaShop was founded in France in 2007 and today there are more than 185,000 ecommerce stores running on its software. It also has a large open source community exclusively dedicated to ecommerce technology, with more than 670,000 members from all over the world. Merchants can download the eBay module for free on the PrestaShop Market Place.
Prestashop is currently expanding its business operations into Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland and Russia.
