PrestaShop is here

We are launching straight into 2015 by wishing you a very happy New Year and by making PrestaShop available for download. We would like to thank the whole Community, who has helped us test, debug and improve this latest version. It’s thanks to you too that it’s all been possible!

Plenty of new features!

More than 300 improvements and new features have been added to the new version. You can find full details on our changelog, but the major differences are as follows:

  • Improved tax and rounding management.
  • Improved specific price reductions and management of associated prices including/excluding VAT.
  • New Costa Rica localization pack.
  • Option to manage back-office orders in catalog mode.
  • Substantial upgrading of the Wishlist module.
  • Updated taxes and states for Canada.

Tax and rounding management

This has been THE major achievement of the new version. PrestaShop now offers greatly improved management of tax and rounding by giving you a wider choice and greater freedom when setting your parameters. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Tax calculations carried out by product, product line or total products.
  • New rounding management: Half_Up rounding to the nearest whole number and, in particular, the Half_Even or Bankers’ Rounding method for rounding to the nearest even number.
  • Option to set the desired number of decimal places, which will affect the number of decimals used in all the price calculations for your online store.

You can find details on how to make these changes to your store in our documentation! So, what are you waiting for? The new year is the perfect time to update your stores! > Download PrestaShop > Check out our update guide
