Frequently Asked Questions

  • Pre-requisites:

    Linux hosting (for webservices) 
    PHP 5 or later with MOD_REWRITE enabled 
    Prestashop 1.5, 1.6 or later installed. 
    Usually any basic linux host with popular hosting providers have these settings by default.
  • How to test Prestashop's webservices:

    Enable Webservices: Advanced Parameters -> Webservices
    Click on Add new webservice key.
    On "key" field, click on Generate key.
    Select any resource and click "All" checkbox. Save.
    Copy the webservice key and go to:
    http://mysite.com/prestashop/api (just add /api to your prestashop's URL)
    A window will popup asking for credentials like this:
    Enter your webservice key as user, and leave password empty.
    You must see an XML displayed, that means your Prestashop's webservices work.
  • Are the stores independent from each other?

    Yes, users cannot see or modify other users stores. User stores will look like:
    yourdomain.com/UserStore1, yourdomain.com/UserStore2
    Where the name of the store is whatever they type on your front end.
  • Can the Admin see the stores and products of users?

    Yes, super admin is able to see all stores, products and users, this is already a Prestashop feature.
  • Can users have a domain or subdomain associated?

    You will need to give them permissions to do that by modifying their profile permissions.
  • How can I control the features of the users?
