Ecomwise has become a partner of the e-commerce platform Shopware since April. At the end of last year we started to delve into this e-commerce platform and after a few months we decided to offer Shopware 6 in addition to Magento.
What is Shopware?
Shopware is an open-source e-commerce platform from Germany. Shopware is the most used e-commerce system in Germany and due to its flexibility and user-friendliness, the platform is also growing strongly in other countries in Europe. Shopware has been active in the e-commerce market for more than 20 years and, with its different versions, serves more than 100,000+ customers. The latest version of the Shopware platform was launched in early 2020 Shopware 6.
Why Shopware next to Magento?
10 years ago, the e-commerce market was even more limited in terms of good open source e-commerce platforms. This has changed a lot in recent years, making it all the more important for companies to make the right choice with which e-commerce platform you can best achieve your goals. For us as an e-commerce agency we see technology as a means and that is why we advise which platform is most suitable for your organization. If you want to know more about the differences between Magento and Shopware 6, read our blog Magento 2 vs Shopware 6.
