Ambassador Charter

The PrestaShop Ambassador program has been developed to expand the PrestaShop Community and reward its best members. By becoming PrestaShop Ambassadors, community members will have the opportunity to become the leaders of many PrestaShop communities across the world.

A PrestaShop Ambassador is a privileged PrestaShop’s Community member. PrestaShop selects its Ambassadors from a pool of volunteers from the Community interested in becoming PrestaShop Ambassadors. The PrestaShop Ambassador is an independent volunteer position and has no salary implications. Applicants will be vetted by the PrestaShop team to participate in the program and have the chance to generate a positive impact on their local PrestaShop community.

Developers, designers, merchants and consultants can all register to become a PrestaShop Ambassador. Ambassadors from any company will be PrestaShop Ambassadors as individuals rather than a proxy for the said company. When you are a PrestaShop Ambassador, you agree to promote the PrestaShop Software and share your experience without promoting your own business. Once selected, PrestaShop Ambassadors will be introduced on the official PrestaShop Ambassador Program website (http://ambassadors.prestashop.com) as privileged members of the PrestaShop Community, through a bio listing their experience in ecommerce and the PrestaShop ecosystem.

PrestaShop Ambassadors can promote PrestaShop and its Community by contributing articles for the official PrestaShop’s blog (http://www.prestashop.com/blog/en), publishing content about their experience with the PrestaShop Software on social networks and on their personal website. The PrestaShop Company may also help you with the organization of local meetups. To assist you and guide you, you will be granted direct contact with the PrestaShop Ambassador Manager. During those meetups or other organized events, your public intervention commits you and you only, the PrestaShop Company is not bind by your public communications or speeches in any way. Although, if your meetups are not on free access, they may not be supported financially by the PrestaShop Company.

PrestaShop Ambassadors are awarded a specific badge to maintain a special status on their activities related to the PrestaShop software and the PrestaShop Company. This status is awarded to the individual and is not transferable. After demonstrating your commitment as a PrestaShop Ambassador during a two-month probation period, you will receive special PrestaShop goodies and you may have access to exclusive information about PrestaShop and its projects, before other community members are notified. As a PrestaShop Ambassador, you agree to only use your Ambassador status to promote the PrestaShop ecosystem. You are forbidden to promote a PrestaShop competitor or another ecommerce solution neither harm the PrestaShop Company reputation. You further agree not to use your Ambassador status to promote your personal business and activities.
