We are often asked: "What is a multi-store in cms PresraShop and how does it work?". Therefore, we could not but touch on this topic. In this article, we will talk about what a multi-store implies and how it is implemented in online stores on PrestaShop.
We suggest starting with the definition of a multi-store - this is a functional that allows you to manage several online stores at once from one administrative panel. This makes it easier for administrators to manage sites and provides centralized configuration changes, product and order management, as well as collaboration on catalogs and other resources.
This functionality will be especially useful for business owners who want to expand their business and open new stores without having to manage each of them separately.
This functionality is perfect for a whole chain of stores, prices and assortment in which may vary depending on the location of the store (the selected city). In the administrative panel, you just need to create several stores and fill them out based on your needs: create categories, products, add prices and other related information necessary for online sales.
In addition, these settings are embedded in the free public version of the online store on cms PrestaShop. You will not have to pay extra for the development of such functionality, unlike many other popular platforms, which is its great advantage.
Also, the free public version of the platform includes the functionality of multilingualism and multicurrency, but this is a completely different story, which you can read about in our new articles!
