The business model of PrestaShop relies on the selling of services to its client base for corporate partners, including optional add-on apps and themes. It seems to allow it to give anyone interested in selling digital or physical products online a sophisticated e-commerce alternative. In addition to web platforms, Prestashop also provides API Services for web application and mobile application to send and receive data from web servers.
Furthermore, using the built in web service feature of Prestashop one can build his/her own mobile application for his/her ecommerce websites. Although Prestashop stores provide lots of modules to create mobile applications in a few clicks (many of them are paid products), creating your own custom mobile application is a lot more efficient and customizable than those products.
