What is the Integration Fund?

The Integration Fund is a $ 1.000.000 outstanding Program rewarding a selected bunch of developers by awarding them funding to develop high-quality local modules for PrestaShop.

Who can apply to the Integration Fund?

Anyone! Current Addons contributors as well as new contributors are welcome to apply to our Integration Fund.

What types of modules can be submitted?

We are specifically looking to fund local modules all over the world. The following categories are our priorities:

  • Payment

  • Shipping & Logistics

  • Marketplaces

  • Administration (ie. local ERP)

However, we are open to any opportunity. Do not hesitate to suggest what you think can be useful to make our merchants' success.

What are the conditions for a project to be selected by the Fund?

  • The module is local, i.e. specific to a localized market and available in a precise list of countries

  • The module is missing on PrestaShop Addons

  • The module makes life easier for our merchants and their customers

What is the application and selection process?

To be selected by the Fund, you need to have an Addons Seller account. You can create your account here. If you already have an Addons Seller account, we encourage you to use this account to apply to the Fund. We will get in touch with you via your Seller account to discuss and assess your project.

For a project to be selected, we agree on functional and technical specificities as well as the amount of the funding corresponding to the project. Then it is over to you to develop your module in 90 days max. Afterwards, your module goes through the validation process of PrestaShop Addons.

The funding is awarded after a 45-day period of online presence of the module on PrestaShop Addons. During this time, we will ensure you deliver the right support and customer service experience we expect from our contributors.

Right after this period, if everything goes well as it should, you receive the funding and the revenues from sales.

Where can I find guidelines to develop my module?

There are several resources available to help you develop a module that fits well our standards and requirements for Prestashop. Here are the main ones:

You can also use our 4 templates available on the Modules Generator.

You can also find our pieces of advice regarding the coding standards and security tips in the Validator.

How do I submit my module for validation?

Before submitting your module please check that it respects the validation standards available here:

In a first time you have to do an automated check using the Validator. In case it reveals some errors, please correct them.

You can then submit your module to our validation team by following the steps below:

  • Go to you Seller account

  • Go to the Products tab

  • In the top right corner go to the New button and click on Add a fund project (make sure not to click on Add a module)

  • Follow the steps on the screen in order to fill in your product sheet and to upload your zip

Is the validation process different?

The validation steps are the same, but we will be more demanding in terms of technical, functional and marketing quality as we will value this work through the payment of the funding.

What is the contributor's revenue model?

The Integration Fund gives contributors access to a new revenue model in 2 steps:

1. The funding

Its amount will depend on the level of complexity and the category of the module. We will make sure to award the fairest funding amounts on a case-by-case basis.

2. The share on module sales

The contributor receives 30% of the revenues on the module's sales until the total of PrestaShop's commissions reaches the amount of the awarded funding, then 70% on all following sales.

How do I collect my funding (advanced money) and the earnings generated by the sales of my module?

In your seller account, go to Bank , where you will find a tab called Integration fund.

Click on Receive my money to ask for the payment available. If you can’t see that tab, it means that you haven’t met the requirements; having a minimum of 100€ for 45 days on the account.

You will receive the transfer granted by the Integration Fund without receiving a bill, for it is not considered as remuneration but as granted money, and is thus not a payment (it is advanced money that will later be reimbursed by your module sales). Since a bill is only necessary in case of a payment, there is no need for one here.

The accounting regularization is updated et can be checked on the bills of each sale of the module. The bill linked to the money transfer is automatically generated and you can download it from your seller account.

How do I collect the payout for the sales of my module?

In your seller account, a new button called "Integration Fund Cashable Balance" will appear under the “Cashable Balance” button. Click on that new button to claim the collection of the payout for the sales of your funded module(s).

When you hit the “Send Request” button, the corresponding invoice is automatically generated and you can download it from your seller account.

Why has my application been refused?

We will always answer to tell a contributor why the project has been refused.

The best projects will be selected on the sole discretion of PrestaShop, who will evaluate the projects proposed according to several criteria. If your application is refused, it may be due to one of the following reasons:

  • Such a module already exists

  • Such a module is already in development

  • The module is outside the scope of the Integration Fund

Can I submit a theme via the Integration Fund?

No you can't. The Integration Fund is 100% dedicated to helping contributors develop local modules.
