How to best contact us
Connect and Collaborate with the PrestaShop Teams
There are many ways to connect with the PrestaShop team. From support requests to development contributions, we’re here to work with you!
Since we’re an open source company, there are a number of places where we collaborate with the PrestaShop community. For new and old community members alike, it’s helpful to have this information in one place.
Without further ado, this is how we can work together!

Whether it’s getting started, understanding product features, setting up your shop or knowing the best practices, there are many reasons why you might need support as a merchant.
Here are a few ways to get answers to your questions:
Contacting our teams
Reporting issues to the Core team
No software is perfect, and PrestaShop is no exception. Our team spends its whole time creating features, testing behaviors and fixing bugs: it’s a year-long process.
We’d love to have you on the team! Join the ranks of users who help to improve PrestaShop: provide us with detailed report of any reproducible issue you stumble upon, and we’ll do our best to get it fixed!
Please use this reference guide to better understand what makes a great Github issue.
Then, create your report for the right context. The Core team will review your report and answer back with any questions and /or ideas.
Thank you for your contribution and support to the PrestaShop community!
We also have a Slack chat for you to join, where you can chat with other contributors, and where the team sometimes hangs out :)
Talking to the Addons team about bought modules/themes
Do you need help with a purchased module or theme from Addons? The best way to get your message through is to contact the original developer through the Addons contact form.
If the developer does not answer in a timely fashion, let us know, using the same form.
Helping the i18n improve the translation
If you find that a section of the software (or its native modules) is badly translated, you can help by suggesting a new translation for your language!
All the community translation work happens on the Crowdin platform. Create an account, and you can start your translations right away!
If you found a text string that is simply not translatable, you can create a Forge issue (see above), or mail the team: [email protected] .
Contributing to the User documentation
The PrestaShop documentation has dozens of chapters and hundreds of pages of content. Most likely we have some typos here and there. We might need some updates as well. Have you seen such an issue? If so, let us know, send us an email at [email protected]
The documentation site is also a wiki, so you can fix an issue directly!
You will need an account for that: contact the team at [email protected] and they will email you back.
Contributing to the 1.7 Developer/Designer documentation
The PrestaShop 1.7 techdocs (theme & modules) has a dedicated site, generated from static text files in order to be closer to what developers know.
You can contribute to it through the GitHub repository. You can create issues AND pull requests. Thank you!
PrestaShop is an Open Source, and has a great marketplace for creative members of the community: two big reasons for you to contribute!
By helping with the Core code, you build significant knowledge with the codebase, and a strong relationship with the team.
By selling your modules/themes on Addons, you can earn money for your development, and gain exposure for your work. What’s not to like? :)
