A list of PrestaShop modules to consider for a successful Black Friday and Holiday season

By PrestaShop Team

In addition to holiday sales, the Black Friday phenomenon, about a month before Christmas, continues to grow each year. For example, in the United States, 7.4 billion dollars were generated during Black Friday 2019 - 20% more than in 2018. The intensity and impact of Black Friday continues to grow year after year since it first took on Europe in early 2010.

Your online shop is no doubt already well prepared to face the most important online shopping period, namely Black Friday and the end of the year festivities, but we thought it would be very useful to have a selection of PrestaShop modules adapted to suit all your e-commerce needs.

Happy selling to all!
