Prestashop new Business model

Recommended Posts

Hello @Smile @datakick

Just to inform you that TB has another opportunity to take a PS piece of cake.

They just send a newsletter today that every module will need an annual subscription option. And even minor updates will not be available if you do not pay it. This can make angry some people and also make it less affordable to  small merchants.

You could try to capitalize this.

 

Regards

I don't think that the newsletter module get a lot of attention.

Neither do I think that TB should compete with prestashop but rather develop a model where Prestashop falls short. Smaller buniess with 300 to 1500 articles are ignored by the market. Woocommerce and shopify take on those.

Less features but easier to handle and ultra stable in questions of updates is the future IMHO.

Dear customers,
 
We would like to inform you of a major change coming soon to the PrestaShop Addons marketplace, which will result in the modification of our Terms and conditions of use (https://preview.prestashop.com/e2t/sc2/MmZ-8yjWgpzW65vG9s9l7r96W75Zv-w4-7SH7W1w4JCy6lGwVkdBzP8N04  ) .
 
As of June 1, 2021* for all Addons developed by PrestaShop, and as of July 1, 2021* for all other Addons, the Zen Option will be replaced by our new subscription-based 'Business Care' offer.
 
 
Services included in the 'Business Care' subscription
 
Security updates
 
All Addon updates, both minor and major, will be available as soon as they are released.
 
Compatibility updates
 
With each new version of PrestaShop software, your Addon's compatibility is ensured with an update.
 
Future developments and features
 
No need to buy your Addon again to benefit from its new features. Access all its developments as soon as they are released.

it has not much to do with him.

Also the Extension update obligation is IMHO not a good idea.

More stable the shop becomes the better it will be. IMHO

Experienced developers also use PrestaShop to create stores, including custom ones. Popularity is promoted by the open-source code that allows you to create your modules for CMS. Templates for the engine are designed based on the Smarty framework, which gives the flexibility to customize their appearance and functionality. I'm no exception, though it's complicated to calculate the finances there. So I discovered a new program https://sturppy.com/. I quickly calculate the numbers I need because the template is already there.
