PrestaShop is a freemium, open-source e-commerce platform allowing you to create an online store and sell products. 


Connecting your PrestaShop account will allow your messages, orders, and order information to flow directly into eDesk. 

All messages will continue to be delivered to your PrestaShop account and it will also update when you send messages from eDesk.


Before you start

 
  • You’ll need an Admin login to eDesk. If you don’t have an Admin login, you can request one from an Admin user within your business.
 
  • You'll need a PrestaShop account. To find out how to create one, click here.

Note: at least 1.6.1 version of PrestaShop is required to integrate with eDesk.
