Shopware is a great platform for any ecommerce website. But there are several editions available which offer different features that can help online stores at different stages of their ecommerce maturity.
Our team will help you choose the right edition for your needs, and ensure that you have access to all the features that will make your business fly online.
Our Shopware experts
This is the entry level Shopware edition which helps those just starting out with an ecommerce shop for the first time might consider using.
Whilst Shopify and Woocommerce are very popular at this level, Shopware Starter offers similar levels of functionality within the Shopware platform to help you get selling for the first time.
Costs are low but with all code being hosted in the cloud, making changes and customization is restricted. So once you’ve started selling successfully and need more functionality, you’ll need to think about upgrading to the next level…
This edition runs most ecommerce stores across the globe. With dozens of amazing features out of the box, integrations into the Shopware backend via the Shopware Store and access to the PHP & Vue code to make any customisation your web development agency can think of, this version has it all!
The Shopware Professional edition carries a monthly cost to ensure all core admin and store code is professionally maintained by the Shopware developer team so that your online store stays secure, fast and feature rich.
For B2B businesses, the Shopware Enterprise edition offers huge amounts of functionality and features to help you engage with your current and potential customers as well as those selling products on your behalf.
With a wide range of tools available for ecommerce managers, the Enterprise edition allows you to integrate a wide range of merchants within your sales network to help get better control of sales and pricing. Merchants can also work from centralised content which helps to keep greater control over branding, merchandising and pricing to save time and ensure that those selling your products do so in the right way.
Growing sales online can always be done, but keeping consistency for bigger brands is paramount and with the Enterprise version of Shopware, you have all the control you need at your fingertips.
Shopware 6 is the latest version of the code platform and has seen vast improvements over Shopware 5 and requires careful migration from one version to the other.
Shopware 6 comes with loads of new features such as social shopping (to allow products to be listed on Instagram for example), simple drag and drop product management and amazing configurations available for promotions and discounts via the ‘rule builder.’ The chances to increase your online revenue are endless!
