The Vue Storefront Marketplace

The Vue Storefront Community is growing like crazy! The Category Power of PWAs and great people are making the numbers:

  • 4,000 Github Stars
  • 1,100 Slack users
  • 100 Github Contributors
  • 30 Official Partners

It’s becoming a vibrant ecosystem where agencies are building shops for merchants (with a growing number of production deployments), vendors are providing them with modules and developers and freelancers are contributing new features to the core.

The key to its success is its openness. Anyone can build a module, theme or integration with a third-party backend for Vue Storefront.

We’re receiving a dozen of leads weekly from users wanting Vue Storefront connected to their WooCommerce, or Prestashop backends. It’s a great chance for our partner companies to build massively popular integrations and modules which we’ll promote on our Marketplace — Piotr Karwatka, co-founder of Vue Storefront.

This post is an invitation to build The Vue Storefront Marketplace with us.

We’d like to leverage Vue Storefront’s popularity and make our commitment even stronger — by providing the community with quality themes, modules and integrations.

Marketplace Challenge

The Challenge

To launch our official Marketplace we need to build the critical mass of the modules, themes, and integrations first.

We invite freelancers and companies to build:

  • Integrations — like WooCommerce, IBM Websphere, Hybris, Demandware and Prestashop. Other third-party platforms are welcome;
  • Custom Vue Storefront Modules — especially for Payment providers — like our Braintree, Paypal integrations;
  • Custom Vue Storefront Themes.
