Prestashop Maintenance Mode

Updated 30 April 2024

Need to implement some necessary changes to your store and do not want your customers to see this at the same time, then Prestashop Maintenance Mode can be your best bet. Add a customizable maintenance page to your store displaying a message to the customers that your store is currently under construction and will be live soon. As Google crawls the site from time to time, adding an under construction page while updating your store won’t let your search engine rankings fall.

Note: Prestashop Maintenance Mode module is compatible with PrestaShop version 8.x.x and multi-store feature.
