What is different from Prestashop Backoffice ?
The backoffice is a web application, therefore much slower than a Windows application. For example, with the backoffice, each single change on a combination, requires the entire page to be uploaded again. It is ok if you have lot of time to loose. Not us.
With PrestaPricing, each change is applied instantly, with no wait at all! You can easily navigate from one product to another, swap to another combination, all this on a single click. You can even use the copy-paste.
The backoffice does not propose any tool to modify prices and quantities of many products at once while PrestaPricing permits mass editable on entire columns.
With PrestaPricing, you can see immediately the impact on the retail price +Tx of the modification of another parameter (price impact, discount,...)
I use Excell so far. What are the pro-cons of PrestaPricing ?
PrestaPricing works in real time, connected to the database (even if from version 3.5, it also includes an offline editor, for travellers). Your edits are immediately taken into account. This is optimum for daily maintenance.
Creating Excel files from the database, to do mass upload and sync after editing, is a much slower and risky process. With PrestaPricing, you have full control and visibility on what to import and how.
PrestaPricing integrates many bulk modification tools, to easily apply a price variation to a selection of products for instance.
It also calculates in real time the final price of a product, the margin... by changing any parameter like the wholesale price, the tax id, the ecotax, the country of sale...
It includes forms to edit products and combinations one by one (with an HTML WYSIWYG editor).
Works on all servers?
With previous versions 1x, a direct (also called "external") access to the MySQL database of your shop was required. Technically speaking, the server's port 3306 have had to be opened. This is rarely the case with shared servers. The alternative was to use the SSH protocol (rarely proposed as server option)
From version 2.x and above, the connection can be established on all databases, even on shared server, without using the 3306 port or the SSH.
