- How do I install Prestashop addons?
One of the most essential points if you have an online store is to give it visibility on the internet. If not, how do you think customers will find your products?
You can start studying marketing if that’s your passion. Still, suppose you want to know how to optimize your ads or give your store more visibility on Google. In that case, you can install PrestaShop addons that specialize in providing you more visibility on the Internet.
They are intuitive and easy to use and will help you increase user traffic in your online store.
1. Google Shopping: export products from Prestashop catalog to Google Merchant Center
Creating an ad in Google Shopping with a single click is possible and, above all, highly recommended. This Prestashop addon allows you to automatize the shipping of your products on Google Shopping. Do not waste more time creating your campaigns on your Google account.
It’s straightforward: your products will synchronize with a single click, significantly increasing traffic to your store and, therefore, your sales. Depending on your geographical location and the filters used (new, discount, price, category, colors, etc.), users will be able to access your online store directly, ensuring more traffic.
However, pay attention to the expenses related to the product name, as they may vary depending on the number of clicks (CPC). To avoid worries, check your Google Ads account (formerly Google Adwords) and set the maximum campaign budget.
2. Pixel Plus Module: Conversions and Events + Pixel Catalogue
The setup of Pixel and your product catalog for Facebook and Instagram sales can be really complicated, especially if you don’t have a lot of technical knowledge.
This is where the module for Prestashop Pixel plus comes to your aid. In particular, this addon will help you to monitor all the main events managed by the Facebook Business Manager (PageView, ViewContent, AddToCart, AddToWishlist, ViewCategory, InitiateCheckout, Complete Registration, and Purchase). Not only can you create custom events based on your product catalog (and use it to tag your products on Instagram), but you can also use advanced remarketing by creating dynamic ads on users who visit your product pages and do not convert.
A really powerful tool to increase your sales and create “customized” ads for your potential customers.
3. Google Dynamic Remarketing Module
This is one of the PrestaShop addons that allows online salespeople to place ads aimed at potential customers who have already visited their online store and/or pages with specific products.
The advantage of this module is its dynamism that integrates the flow of products. The product recommendation engine Google Ads (formerly AdWords) extracts the products. It identifies the best combination of products for each ad, based on their popularity and the content that the user has displayed on your page.
By combining this module with Google Merchant Center, you can create campaigns targeted to specific objectives and increase your conversion rate and sales.
4. Prestashop Addon: SEO Expert Module – Indexing
Optimizing your store’s SEO is one of the most profitable long-term strategies to increase traffic with little expense. The plugin packages developed by PrestaShop to improve SEO will help you optimize all your pages’ descriptions, titles, and images.
SEO strategies are currently complicated, but they will allow you to increase traffic and get more recognition from Google.
The closer you bring your Trust Flow to your Citation Flow, the better your Google ranking will be. On the Google Search Console, you can see the number of impressions and clicks, as well as the positioning of your pages.
The advantage of these PrestaShop addons is that you don’t need to be an expert in the field:
With SEO Expert, you can automatically compile tags for ranking in both search engines and social networks.
With this PrestaShop SEO module, users can find your store with ease, translating into much more visibility and potential new customers.
Having a SEO strategy is a sure bet for the long term.
5. Prestashop Addon: Amazon Marketplace
Do you want to improve your sales without wasting time? Automatically import your products to the world’s most popular online sales portal: Amazon.
This PrestaShop module will allow you to import your products on Amazon in a straightforward way. Moreover, it integrates the use of different languages, and with it, you can sell your products in Amazon Spain, France, Italy, Germany, and much more!
The goal is to advertise your brand because it is not precisely in the world’s biggest sales portal, where you will earn the most money. However, it can be a great tool to improve the visibility of your products internationally.
Other benefits offered by this PrestaShop module is inventory management and increased customer satisfaction.
If you are also interested in Amazon, you can read this article about selling on Amazon.
Another positive point that PrestaShop has is the variety of statistics and data analysis modules. This is essential if you have an online store.
You need to know your customers, where they come from, what they buy, your average receipt, etc. In this way, in addition to satisfying the customer you are addressing, you will be able to customize your marketing strategies, shipping, and even returns.
The best way to profit from your store is to know your consumer.
6. Prestashop Addon: Google Analytics Enhanced Ecommerce
Synchronize your online store with the advanced e-commerce features of Google Analytics. With this addon from PrestaShop, analyzing your online store’s traffic and sales will become a piece of cake.
It will also allow you to automatically create retargeting campaigns with Google Adwords, which is very useful for directing your ads to increase conversions.
7. Advanced Product Statistics Module (Analytics & Tips)
This module, developed by PrestaShop, and integrated directly into the back office, will provide you with all the critical information and data about your products in the blink of an eye.
Another exciting aspect of this module is that it will suggest ideas for optimizing pages and improving sales. Take a look at it as soon as possible.
Web positioning or having a view of the analysis is not everything. Another important (and I would say essential) aspect is how your online store looks like. As it is often said, “the eye wants its part too.” And as much as your store can be optimized at best, if it looks old-fashioned or does not show the product in an interactive form, it will be challenging to get customers.
But to do this, PrestaShop has several modules with which you can integrate videos, show your products in more attractive ways, and customize your e-commerce menu.
Take a look at these PrestaShop addons!
8. Prestashop Addon: Product videos – YouTube, Vimeo…
This PrestaShop module is simple and practical at the same time. It will allow you to include Youtube or Vimeo videos directly in the product description that appears in your online store.
Don’t settle for simple images: switch to videos and optimize the conversion rate. You can decide in which part of the page you want the video to appear.
The advantage of this PrestaShop module is that it is multi-video, multi-lingual, and multilingual, ideal for any site.
You can also use the video as the foreground image of your product. Great to give users a complete view of your products!
Don’t forget that nowadays we consume more content in video format than image.
9. Advanced Top Menu Module – Responsive
Does your page have more product categories? Then this module in PrestaShop addon is designed for you.
Add images and fully customize the menu of your online store. Improving the user experience is a key step in building customer loyalty and increasing sales.
You can also highlight categories, such as products on sale and that you need to get rid of somehow.
Also, one of its advantages is responsive design. Increasingly, traffic and conversions come more from mobile devices than from your computer. This module is essential in your online store.
10. Creative Slider Module – Responsive Slideshow
Make your products appear more dynamically on your product pages. This PrestaShop module will allow you to replace product images with a presentation of images. This means that your product images will be shown in succession, advancing automatically.
You can configure image galleries of your products, slider content, and slideshows with special effects.
It is easy to manage and is suitable for SEO positioning (so you can combine it with the module seen previously in this blog).
In addition, this slider has an adaptable design that is correctly displayed on mobile devices.
Obviously, at checkout, the fewer steps there are, and the simpler the process, the better the user experience. This is something to consider if you want them back in your online store.
These PrestaShop add-ons will help you set up that experience in the checkout process.
11. Official PayPal Module
This Prestashop module includes the “Instant payment by Paypal” button on the product page and the shopping cart page.
Simplify your customers’ purchasing process and reduce the shopping cart abandonment rate with this easy to integrate button.
Imagine a user is viewing your online store and sees a product they love. That person knows that he or she has to add it to the shopping cart and eventually register, that a verification email arrives;… This would be really ideal for you, but maybe not for that user.
With this Prestashop module, you skip these steps and go directly to the payment and shipping address. Isn’t it great?
12. PrestaShop Addon: Checkout 2.0
Recently launched, the Prestashop Checkout module is the result of a partnership between Prestashop itself and Paypal.

One of the most popular features of this Prestashop module is Express Checkout, thanks to which you can insert a quick purchase button on the product cards or on the order page, decreasing the clicks needed to complete the purchase and increasing the conversions of your store.
13. Klarna official checkout module
What about those users who would love to shop today, but pay later? Klarna Checkout is a complete online checkout solution designed to increase sales and customer loyalty, including Pay now, Pay later, and Financing options.
We have already talked about all those PrestaShop addons marketing oriented, statistics, payments… But the shipments? How is it possible to manage shipments in an automated way, leaving you time for your store?
Take a look at these three PrestaShop add-ons! Essential for automated logistics and a shipping strategy that leads to increased conversions.
14. Sendcloud Shipping Addon: manage in one click the shipping of your orders

If you do not want to store and prepare your orders on your own, we recommend dropshipping. With this business model, you don’t need to invest in stocks; you don’t need to have a warehouse or process your orders yourself; shipments are made directly to the end customer.
BigBuy is one of the most important wholesalers in Europe. This PrestaShop module connects directly to BigBuy’s warehouses. In addition, from the moment someone purchases in your store on PrestaShop, BigBuy will receive the order and send the package for you and with your logo.
16. Prestashop Addon: Product Out of Stock
Wouldn’t it be nice if you run out of stock every time your customers could reserve them somehow or be informed when you restock them? This is your PrestaShop module.
Instead of showing a simple message informing you that the product is out of stock, this PrestaShop addon allows you to include a custom button that records the user’s email. The customer will automatically receive an email when the product is available again.
It has two advantages: consumers do not feel frustrated, as they will receive the desired product in person, and you can keep track of email addresses to expand your database.
Customer satisfaction often lies in the small details. That’s why these three PrestaShop modules will help you keep them happy.
