We opened our doors in 2007, and it's thanks to the unyielding commitment of our wonderful team and evolving Community that we've been able to reach two million so quickly," said Matt Serralta, PrestaShop's Chief Operating Officer.
PrestaShop has headquarters in both Miami and Paris, and it currently employs nearly 80 e-commerce experts. PrestaShop is being downloaded an average of 3,500 times per day, and approximately 330 new stores using PrestaShop are opened online in any given 24-hour period.
"I am so proud of the efforts the entire PrestaShop team has exerted these past five years. We have come a long way since 2007, and two million downloads is a crowning achievement and an 'open source' of pride for our entire Community," said Bruno Leveque, PrestaShop's co-founder and CEO.
PrestaShop's two millionth download comes on the heels of its most recent release, PrestaShop v1.5. The new version is reimagined, modern and very easy to use. New online merchants, as well as those looking to migrate from other solutions, are invited to download PrestaShop v1.5 now.
