Core:PrestaShop

Codat supports PrestaShop to let you connect via our single API to real-time, consented eCommerce data from your PrestaShop merchant customers.

What is PrestaShop?

PrestaShop is an eCommerce solution used globally and with high market share in Europe and LATAM in particular.

The basic version of PrestaShop is free-to-use, open source software. It is maintained by a business, also called PrestaShop, who sell additional services such as PrestaShop Platform that help merchants get up and running faster and grow their business.

Why do I need a PrestaShop integration?

There are over 300,000 eCommerce stores built on PrestaShop. Many of them are in Europe and LATAM, where PrestaShop is one of the leading providers. 

Merchants need the other systems and services they use to integrate with PrestaShop in order to save time on the manual processing of data, whether that is preparing sales data for a bank to apply for a loan, forecasting cash flow for planning, or reconciling their accounts receivable.

What can I build with a PrestaShop integration?

Software and financial services businesses are building next-generation products and services for PrestaShop merchants with API-based data sharing. Examples include:

  • Financing: provide loans that work better for ecommerce businesses than the ones they can traditionally access from banks by going directly to their PrestaShop sales data
  • Cash flow forecasting: build products that help SMBs forecast cash flow more accurately with a real-time view of their PrestaShop sales
  • Analytics: help SMBs improve digital marketing measurement by syncing PrestaShop sales back into analytics and online marketing platforms

How do you integrate with PrestaShop?

PrestaShop publishes and maintains the PrestaShop Webservice API. This enables merchants to give third-parties programmatic access to their PrestaShop database.

PrestaShop’s API documentation can be found here: https://devdocs.prestashop.com/1.7/webservice/.

How does Codat provide integration with PrestaShop?

Codat has added PrestaShop to our Core API. This means you can build once to a single API to deliver integrations with PrestaShop and all the other leading commerce platforms, including: Shopify, Amazon Seller Central, PayPal, Stripe, Square, iZettle, and more.
