Prestashop Tutorial

PrestaShop newsletter subscribers

How to find the list of PrestaShop newsletter subscribers?

PrestaShop has an option that allows customers to subscribe to the newsletter mailing list, and save the list of PrestaShop newsletter subscribers into its database, although this platform does not have a full-featured built-in email marketing function.

If you use other PrestaShop modules for sending newsletter messages, these modules will automatically get email addresses from the database.

But how can you export newsletter subscribers to send them to other services?

Welcome to PrestaSOO. Today I will show you where you should go to find this information for upcoming promotions & marketing campaigns.

Prestashop under construction page

PrestaShop under construction page: what it does, and how to enable maintenance mode

The PrestaShop under-construction page (or coming soon page) is a special page on the website that notifies customers of an update or website maintenance. If you want to use your own layout for the maintenance mode, you can also show a countdown timer on it.

When your business is growing rapidly, you may find that some modules are getting outdated or the theme needs to be improved. In such cases, you will need to enable maintenance mode on your PrestaShop site.

This article explains what it does and how to enable it on your website with a step-by-step guide.

What does the under-construction page do?

This page prevents visitors from accessing the main functions of your shop in case you're developing the PrestaShop store or updating the product's information.

Let's say you're submitting a new product to your store, and you haven't completed the processing, but you still want to save the information. Putting your store into maintenance mode will avoid any misunderstanding from your customers.

How to add promo codes in PrestaShop for new customers

How to add promo codes in PrestaShop for a new customer

Promo codes are a good way to encourage new customers to buy from you, which can lead to repeat business. It also has the advantage of being very easy to implement.

Most eCommerce websites nowadays use this tactic to get more new customers into their websites.

Why do we need to offer a PrestaShop discount code for a new customer?

Every single new customer that enjoys a discount is an opportunity to grow your business. They need a reason for their decision, and they should see the benefit of buying from you.

If they use your special promotions as a way to be the first place tested, they will spread the word about their great experience and some of them might use you as their store.

It works like this: A customer visits your website and gets excited by the product that they are looking at. But they're thinking about buying it. They then get asked a few questions that would help them make up their mind on whether they want to buy it or not. Questions like "Would you like to purchase this product now?".

If the customer can't find a reason, so they leave your website without buying anything.

But if you show amazing deals, everything will be easier. This is very good for customers who are just trying out your product, and you want to help them by getting them an offer they can't refuse.

Prestashop Login: Fix automatic logout problem

PrestaShop Login: Fix user is automatically logged out of the Admin Panel

You need to login to PrestaShop Admin to manage your products, track the orders, change the module configuration settings...etc. A few seconds after login success, you automatically log out. What's wrong?

I'm sure that your computer is not the cause of this. For some reason, it kicks you out of the session. It's no fun if PrestaShop developers need to configure their addons or check order status immediately.

I think that PrestaShop needs to add a timeline to the site so that we can see how long it takes for these bugs to be fixed. I hope that they are able to do so quickly because this is a really frustrating and unfortunate thing to happen.

Follow this PrestaShop tutorial to figure it out and get the easiest solution by accessing the database of your PrestaShop store.
