BitBag has become an official Shopware Business Partner!

As we always choose technologies and resources based on the client’s needs, we expand our range of services with another eCommerce solution.

A short overview of Shopware

Shopware is one of the most popular open-source eCommerce platforms, founded in Germany in 2000. They create omnichannel solutions used by European leaders in B2B and B2C commerce. The platform is used by clients such as Bruno Banani, Douglas, Haribo, Aston Martin, Jägermeister, Discovery Channel.

Technology stack

Shopware 6 is a modern platform for building unique online stores. Built-in functions, ease of customization, and simple integration with other systems are features that will further encourage store users to buy your products online, regardless of place and device.

The Shopware 6 platform relies on proven and stable technologies, such as Symfony and Vue.js. It is a flexible, efficient, and programmer-friendly system architecture.

The flexibility, freedom, and the MIT license we already know, provide a wide range of possibilities to create solutions for the global community.

API-first approach

The API-first approach gives greater flexibility and provides technology that meets the needs of a constantly changing market.

The core of Shopware allows you to connect various systems such as ERP, PIM, CMS, PWA with the platform, and thus — create entirely new business models.

Thanks to this, both small and large companies have the same opportunities to quickly respond to market changes, creating unique multi-channel purchasing experiences.

A world of experiences

The combination of content and commerce is the key to success. The content that is attractive and tailored to your target group build awareness of your brand.

Advanced functions and an intuitive interface create one of the most extensive CMS systems that allow you to create lookbooks, landing pages, and unique views for categories. All within one platform.

Shopware 6 is equipped with the Shopping Experiences tool to provide your customers with a consistent experience by giving them personalized content at every stage of the shopping path. This process begins with the customer’s first contact with a product — whether it’s a point of sale, blog, or Instagram.

Various sales channels

Shopware 6 allows you to control all sales channels using only one solution, whether it’s an online store, point of sale, social media platform, or marketplace. It means you can display all your products through the sales channels relevant to your target audience.

Sales channels may differ in terms of product range, but also currencies and languages. In addition to predefined channels, you can use the API to connect other sales channels at any time to reach your customers wherever they are. The Shopware 6 platform also allows you to use any number of front-ends. Whether it’s a classic online store, a headless storefront solution, a mobile app, or a multi-shop: you can handle all possible eCommerce scenarios with one tool.

Expansion to different countries means more than translations. As we have said before, Shopware 6 gives you flexibility with the configuration of the following:

  • Optimization for multi-currency and language support
  • Taxes — customizable tax calculations for easy international scaling
  • Sales channels — specified sales channels for each country from one administration
  • Pricing — price and checkout configuration based on rules for different markets
  • Legal issues — adaptation to the law of a given country covered with key components

In today’s world, the need for communication is at the heart of eCommerce. Retailers and manufacturers face new challenges every day, so it’s essential to be prepared for different scenarios. We are highly motivated to see the opportunities Shopware will bring to our current and future customers from both Small-Medium business and Enterprise segments. We believe that in the difficult times caused by the global pandemic crisis, offering a new platform in our vendor portfolio is a way to go.
