PrestaShop, the French company specializing in the creation of online stores, is at a turning point in its history. The company was recently acquired by the Italian group MBE Worldwide, which develops digital shipping, fulfillment, printing and marketing solutions. This acquisition will allow the group to complete its offer and reach a common base of more than 600,000 customers in Europe (mainly in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom and Poland) and more than ‘a million in the world.

Launched in 2007, PrestaShop is one of the French pioneers in its field. In France, the company reigns supreme with a market share of 16.9%. As a reminder, PrestaShop is developing a solution allowing retailers to easily create their e-commerce platform. In 2020, 300,000 merchants generated more than 22 billion euros in business volume thanks to the platform’s tools, claims PrestaShop. For the company, this acquisition is an opportunity to think bigger by strengthening its position in Europe and Latin America, where it has become a key player, and by expanding into other markets.

“Joining MBE is the opportunity for PrestaShop to accelerate its growth with the support of a leading industrial player who will allow us to strengthen our position as leader in Europe and Latin America, to win new customers and to offer them a fully integrated approach ”, comments Alexandre Eruimy, Managing Director of PrestaShop, who remains at the head of the company. “The complementarity of our offers will allow us to become the benchmark commerce platform to accelerate the growth of companies around the world”.

The acquisition of PrestaShop is a major step in its development for MBE. As a reminder, the group had already acquired Pack & Send last March, a Sydney-based company with 144 centers specializing in shipping and logistics services. It also acquired Mail Boxes, which had 75 locations in France in 2020. MBE boasts over 700,000 business customers worldwide through a global network of over 2,800 service centers in 53 countries, with sales exceeding 1 billion US dollars.
