15 essential PrestaShop modules for your e-commerce

Published in:


Are you building your online store and looking for the best PrestaShop modules to add features or take advantage of integrations?

We have created a list of the best modules, divided into categories, to help you find useful add-ons for your e-commerce.

To begin, let’s see what modules are and where we can find them.

Best Prestashop Modules

PrestaShop modules: what they are and what they are for

PrestaShop modules, also called addons, are add-ons created by third-party developers or the internal PrestaShop team.

In practice, a module is a set of files that includes PHP files, JavaScript, assets, and templates.

The latter can be used to show the module interface in the administrative area or form elements that will appear to site visitors.

Why are they useful?

Using modules, we can extend the CMS’s integrated functions—for example, adding new payment methods.

Prestashop Modules Advantages

In other cases, the modules allow us to add new functions to our online store. For example, we can integrate our shop with a marketplace like Amazon and synchronize the catalogs.

Modules also make it easier to create our shop—just think of the page builders that help us create product pages and customized layouts.

These are just a few examples, as there are modules for any function, which brings us to the next question.

Are modules always indispensable?

PrestaShop add-ons allow us to extend the functions and simplify the management of our e-commerce site. In some cases, these add-ons are really useful. In other cases, they can be superfluous.

When you create your shop with PrestaShop, you should carefully evaluate the functions you need and understand when you should use modules.

Prestashop Modules For Backup

For example, there are modules to create automatic site backups.

If you have chosen a quality hosting service, you do not need these modules because your provider offers you this service.

If that is not the case with your provider, try switching to SupportHost! With our PrestaShop hosting, automatic backups are included and free and you can also perform them independently from cPanel.

Where to find PrestaShop modules

Before going over a list of modules that can be useful for creating or improving our shop, let’s see the different sites where you can find them.

The first thing to do is to search for the modules directly from the back office or consult the official directory called PrestaShop official add-ons marketplace.

Prestashop Modules And Addon Marketplace

There, we can find a large catalog of free and premium modules for our PrestaShop site. The list of modules that I will cover in the next chapter contains add-ons taken from that directory.

If the 3,000+ modules found there aren’t enough, you can also check out other marketplaces.

Here are a few examples:

  • Codecanyon, which is part of Envato Market, includes around 300 modules. If you are looking for PrestaShop themes, you can take a look at the dedicated category on Themeforest.
  • PrestaHero currently offers 96 premium modules and 40 free PrestaShop modules. Among the free ones, there is an add-on to insert the captcha code in contact forms.

Having said that, let’s move on to our personal list of add-ons. We have divided them into categories to make reading this article more enjoyable.

We will look at some of the most used modules:

  • for payments;
  • to integrate social networks;
  • to link the store with marketplaces;
  • for marketing;
  • for cookies and GDPR;
  • for other functions: translations, page builders, store metrics, recurring payments and subscriptions.

For each module we have reported the compatibility with the PrestaShop version and the cost, taking the data directly from the PrestaShop add-ons marketplace (as of October 2022).
