When starting to update prices in Prestashop back-office I couldn’t work out why they were apparently not changing on the home page. The reason I found out was because Prestashop holds the information not only in the database but in a large cache as well.

So you may change all the prices but until you flush the cache you are likely not to see the result.

Here are the instructions to clear the Prestashop cache:

  1. Go to Advanced Parameters > Performance from the top menu in the Prestashop back-office.
  2. Click on “Clear Smarty Cache..”

Thats it! After this proceedure all the updated prices and details should be reflected on your web site.
