I Need Your Help Creating a PrestaShop Training Resource

by Curt Donohue on January 18, 2011

Hello Everyone,

Person Needing HelpI’m working on creating a PrestaShop training resource and I need your help in deciding what to focus on.  Please see my survey page here.

To learn how to set up my PrestaShop stores, I’ve read books and spent countless hours in the PrestaShop Forum and decided that there had to be a better way to learn how to use this awesome e-commerce software.  I realized that I was a pretty good trainer using screen capture software, so I knew I could provide something that would be truly useful.

Please check out the video training that I have posted to this site.  This new PrestaShop training resource will be primarily video based (English language) and I will also make other resources available depending on the feedback I receive from you.

Oh, and as a thank you for spending your valuable time, I will enter you into a drawing for three free copies of the product when it is finished (hopefully, in month or so).  It’s selling price will most likely be around $197.00 US, so I hope you understand that this won’t be some wimpy product.  It’s going to be awesome and thorough!

Please click here to take a quick survey and let me know what you think will help you the most in learning how to use the PrestaShop software.

No problem. I look forward to hearing what you think about the program. I was eventually planning on reviewing each of those programs, but I probably won’t get to that for a while yet. Too many other “To do’s.” Have a great day!

Well i ve read you import the url in the images folder and the inventory into another folder but havent really found the way. If i import 10000 products with images it times out. It s to big of a file

There may be a couple easy solutions to this issue. “Easy” means the solutions cost money.

First, I think I’ve heard of modules that do something like this. I don’t know the module names or who sells them, but you could check the PrestaShop Addons Store or, search in Google.

Second, I ran across a couple of programs/modules that I think can handle something like this. I haven’t had the time to really investigate either one yet, though. One is called Store Commander and the other is PrestaShop Store Manager. Both products offer a free trial period. Check out the sites and let me know what you think.

If you download them and they solve your problem, that would be pretty cool, and I would like to know about it.

Hello Curt My name is Jose and i am fairly new to prestashop and have been researching and configuring a site for many months and finally getting accustom to it. But I ve been waiting for your tutorials. My question is if you had a tutorial for bulk product import of 10000 or so . I know you can import the pictures and the descriptions separate but don’t really know how. I feel like you genuinely want to help people out there like me. I thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon .

Hello Jose,

Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, I don’t have a tutorial like that yet and I don’t have any experience with importing. Maybe we can figure it out together? If you can fill me in a bit on that topic, I can start researching it and then eventually develop a tutorial on the subject.
