Prior consent for cookies – PrestaShop module


The PrestaShop plugin by iubenda allows you to automate the implementation of the cookie law rules, drastically reducing the necessity for direct interventions in the site’s code.

Notes

We’re happy to receive feedback, the best option at the moment is this forum by Uservoice.

  • The module is currently compatible with PrestaShop 1.6.x and 1.7.x
  • You also need to have overrides enabled (enabled by default)

Functionality

  • The plugin automatically adds the iubenda code to all the pages of a site (to the HEAD section)
  • Automatically blocks:
    • YouTube
    • Facebook
    • Twitter
    • G+
    • Google AdSense
    • Google Maps
    • AddThis
    • ShareThis
  • Manages the visualisation of the banner and of the cookie policy, as well as the saving of user’s consent preferences as per cookie installation
  • Simplifies the management of the iubenda cookie solution for multilingual sites

Instructions

Install module

  • Log in and open the admin section to get to your main PrestaShop dashboard
  • Click on “Modules and Services” in the sidebar menu
  • In the header section of this admin page, you will find a plus icon with “Add a new module”.
  • To install the module upload the “iubenda-cookie-prestashop-plugin.zip” file (click here to download) –  you must point to the module’s zip archive, and not its folder or any of its unpacked files.

Activate Plugin

If the installation is successful, a message like the folllowing will appear: “Module downloaded successfully”

  • The module will then appear in your list of modules under the Module tab.
  • Click on the install button to install the module.

Now it’s time to go configure the settings of the module.

How to add my Javascript banner and modify settings

Now that the module is ready, we need to feed it the necessary information from your iubenda account.

  • Once again navigate to the “Modules” page if you aren’t there and find the iubenda module
  • Click on configure to go to the module configuration settings
  • Add the code from your iubenda account to the extension (this is what the embedding code looks like in your iubenda dashboard):
    Edit Privacy Policy - Privacy Policy Generator | iubenda
    Read the introduction to the iubenda cookie solution for further information about how it works and how to generate the code above
  • Paste that code into the plugin form

At this point the plugin will start to show the banner which links your cookie policy to your users on their first visit. In addition, the plugin automatically recognizes and blocks cookies from all installed YouTube video players, social widgets – such as the Facebook Like Box, Twitter and G+ buttons etc., Google AdSense, Google Maps, AddThis and ShareThis on your site.
