Shopware - The Trendsetting Shop System

Shopware enables emotional shopping on any device

Shopware is a modular online shop system which was developed in Germany. In addition to the open-source version, a commercial version is also available.

As a first step into e-commerce business, the open-source version „Community“ is recommendable. Support is provided by the community. The fee-based versions „Professional“ and „Professional Plus“ offer additional features, like direct support incl. free installation and an enlarged import/export feature. Also a „Storytelling Feature“ is included, which can be used to create unique landing pages. The responsive designs offers the shopper higher usability and shopping experience.

The plugin for the internationalization of your online shop can be downloaded for free. Moreover, language packages can be purchased to prepare your onlineshop for localization in different countries.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO): In addition to the responsive design, which is very important for Google, there are a lot of additional features which aim at facilitating the optimisation for search engines.

In short
With Shopware you get an shop system which is easy to use, cost-efficte and you get a great range of functions. While the back end of Shopware is easy to use and cost-effective, the development of an own extension is very work-intensive.
