PrestaShop-Shipwire Connection News & BarCamp

November 13, 2012

Maybe it was the idea of camping in a bar? Maybe it was our love of partying in loft spaces? Maybe it was the idea of gathering in the "spring" in New York City? Perhaps it was that we've seen a lot of requests for a PrestaShop connection?

It was actually all of the above.

Shipwire and PrestaShop are getting ready to party together … on many levels. A PrestaShop connection is in the works and the Shipwire team will be at PrestaShop's BarCamp 2012 in NYC this March 20th.

Module is coming soon
Very soon Shipwire and PrestaShop will release a module that connects a PrestaShop powered store to Shipwire.

If you want to be invited to the beta of this module and get the announcement of its general availability please take 30 seconds and sign up for the notification list. PrestaShop Order Fulfillment list.

We appreciate your patience. We very much appreciate your tweeting this, sharing this and generally helping us raise the awareness level.

BarCamp…Party Time
If you have never been to a "BarCamp" or "unconference" you will be impressed. I've found that they go deeper into issues than traditional conferences and have a much higher level of participation. The overall day is structured; but, the coordination and the audience are empowered to take the conference topics in new directions…based on the audience need.

Here are the relevant details for PrestShop's BarCamp in March. If you are in NYC in March consider dropping in.

This will be PrestaShop's first BarCamp in the USA. The 5th one globally. It will be hosted in New York City’s 82Mercer. There will be presentations and workshops all day.

The program looks rock solid and Shipwire's own Kenny Lim will be talking about methods to globalize your shipping. Take my word for it, that the workshops at BarCamps are really amazing. PrestaShop really wants this to be a hands-on experience.

See you in New York.
