A memorable impression.
Transform online shopping into an experience to remember. An exclusive feature of Shopware, Shopping Worlds was designed to rouse the emotional component of online shopping, increase customer involvement with your brand, motivate interest for buying and secure your competitive edge. Create and edit various impressions of your shop within one design view in the backed, where you can freely position products, images, banners, HTML text, videos and much more. Your customers will remember how your shop made them feel – offer impressive landing pages, valuable content and vibrant shopping atmospheres, all without any programming experience. Unlock even greater potential offered by Shopping Worlds with the extensions available in the Shopware Community Store.
Upload the images in your shop only once to comply with different devices – the resolution is automatically resized to compliment the device in use.
You can assign Shopping Worlds to specific devices – define and perfect on which devices particular elements should be displayed.
Creating impressive sites could not be easier. Shopping Worlds helps you bring concepts and designs to life – no programming experience required.
Freely decide which elements to include in your Shopping Worlds. Whether item slider, video, blog teaser or premium item; every available element is easily accessible in your library.
There are no rules or limitations within a Shopping Worlds grid. You can resize, define, arbitrarily combine and shift every element with the simplicity of drag & drop.
Shopping Worlds elements are positioned using a grid system in the backend. The layout of each grid can be customized for each Shopping World.
Created and developed by Shopware, Shopping Worlds were designed to help you reach your customers on an emotional level and awaken their desire to make a purchase. Now with several free Shopping Worlds presets to choose from, this plugin makes working with this feature easier than ever and brings you a considerable competitive advantage. These presets come neatly packed with predefined image and text snippets, which can be individually customised following the usability known from Shopware’s backend. All images contained in the presets are licence-free and therefore available to use in your shop for absolutely no cost.
An emotional catalyst, Sideview is an additional element of any balanced, inspired shopping experience. After clicking or touching an image of interest, the customer is presented further details of the items contained within the image. This engaging approach to browsing and discovering new treasures not only creates a truly memorable shopping experience, but also contributes to exceptional usability.
With Shopware 5, customers are more likely to remain in your online store due to the deep emotional involvement experienced during their visit – an essential relationship that is further supported by Quickview. When a customer clicks or touches a banner or product, a more detailed information page is displayed. With interest, the customer is free to save the item to their personal wish list or purchase directly. Your customers can close Quickview whenever they choose and return to the same place in your online shop. Nothing disrupts the unity of the Shopping World, narrative and emotion - neither navigation nor the device being used during the customer’s journey.
As of Shopware 5.3, customers can make purchases directly from the product listing page. Without reloading the page, items from the listing or Quickview feature can be placed directly in the shopping cart, all without the need to first visit the product detail page. Especially relevant for customers shopping on mobile devices, this makes for an even more pleasant journey in your shop.
The possibilities offered by the new sorting and filtering on the listing page bring a true added value to your shop. Customers can now enjoy filtering without the page reloading; a small detail that makes the shopping experience far smoother. In addition, filter combinations that are currently not available in your online shop will be greyed-out, making it so that your customers always find an available product. The settings for the filters and sorting can be configured for both your entire shop as well as individual categories.
With the advanced feature, Digital Publishing, you can easily create dynamic banners, directly from your Shopware backend. Text that is cut-off or buttons that appear incorrect over your images are now a thing of the past – here, all the graphics you create are completely responsive.
Place buttons and text on different layers, similar to the way it’s done in Photoshop. Integrate real “call to action” buttons in your Shopping Worlds and create fully responsive banners.
Test how your banners behave when they appear if different sizes – i.e. on various devices – in a clear, live preview. Creating a responsive campaign has never been easier.
Because the text is displayed as HTML text, this makes it relevant for search engines – this means by creating graphics, you are creating better SEO possibilities.
You have a number of different elements to choose from when creating your banners, including images, background, text and buttons.
Of course, your banners behave perfectly in your Shopping Worlds and Storytelling environments. Now creation and implementation of banners takes place in one backend.
Digital Publishing actively supports you in internationalisation. You can translate all banner text independently, or by using the integrated translation tool.
From the installation through banner design - in our how-to guide, we provide you with step-by-step instructions on how you can use Digital Publishing quickly and successfully in your shop.To the how-to guide

Shopware 5 has a streamlined and approachable look due to its minimalist, flat design. Despite the experience level, users will find accessing and working with essential elements in the backend both intuitive and enjoyable. To make information as clear as possible, elements are displayed only when they are being used. To provide a consistent design language, we have implemented a very natural, organic look and feel to every animation and smallest element detail. We have truly taken “form follows function” to heart when designing this highly usable and sleek interface.
Thanks to an open template basis, Shopware is completely customizable. Many adjustments can be easily implemented in the standard Shopware backend.
A standard feature of Shopware, every detail of our responsive design has been carefully considered in order to provide a uniform experience across every available device.
We brought in a team of experts to perform thorough usability tests. Our optimized checkout process is proven to increase conversion rates for the long term.
In the frontend, your customers can filter item properties by color, material, manufacturer, shipping cost, shopping method, price or review. Multiple filters can be used simultaneously. Unbeatable clarity of overview and usability also apply to mobile shopping. Filters can be collapsed or expanded in an off canvas menu. This paves the way for convenience and comfort while navigating large product selections.
We invested a great deal time and dedication in order to offer seamless usability on every device. Off canvas menus and touch controls, such as finger-friendly buttons, pinch-to-zoom galleries or sliders with momentum scrolling, provide the perfect mobile shopping experience.
The brand new Fashion Theme for your online shop
Everything you need under one roof.
We wanted Shopware to be enjoyable and approachable not only for online customers, but also for the merchants who use the software daily. The result is one of the most intuitive administrative interfaces one could imagine. The Shopware backend is compatible with any browser and operating system for on-the-go use. You do not have to readjust to a new system, as Shopware offers familiar features such as drag & drop, double click and more. Thanks to several windows, you always have an organised and clear overview of all information relevant to your business. With the time and money you save from the clarity of the Shopware administration, you can focus on other core aspects of your business.
In the backend, not only are your features and data conveniently contained within one view, but also opened and collapsed with only a click.

With the new Customer Streams, you can filter your customers based on the criteria you define and present products that are perfectly tailored to their interests. Whether newsletters, vouchers or content on your landing page, streams will adjust to show content that speaks to your customer’s individual interests.
Product streams draw your customers’ attention to specific assortments – assortments which you have already defined, behind the scenes, using conditions. For instance, you can present the latest products from a certain category (condition 1), of a particular manufacturer (condition 2), in a particular price range (condition 3), using a few simple mouse clicks. Product streams can appear at decisive points in your shop, such category pages, product detail pages or in shopping worlds. The highlight: product streams automatically update themselves. So when any new product meets the defined filter criteria, the system updates the stream without you having to lift a finger.
Dynamic streams for categories
Streams play out in critical cross and up-selling areas
Seamless integration with shopping worlds
In creating product streams in the backend, you can assign any number and combination of eligible filter conditions. These include brand, price, manufacturer, property, rating and much more.
Determine the filter conditions and manner of the stream, as well as the desired placement within the shop. The products will automatically play and update, without you having to do any work.

Subtle yet packed with power. The Shopware technology.
One of the most stunning features of Shopware 5 cannot be seen from the surface. It must be observed first-hand, under the hood: the completely overhauled technology. Shopware’s software architecture is made up of powerful, modern technology with sights on the future. The code basis is lean, efficient and has a direct impact on the performance of the system. Shopware is an open source product. In involving thousands of developers to the development and improvement of the system, Shopware meets the highest standards and guarantees your investment is secure. The plugin system makes it possible to extend both the front and backend to meet your requirements, all without losing the ability to make software updates/upgrades. Without any restrictions or reservations, Shopware can be shaped and extended to satisfy the unique requirements of any business.
Every part of Shopware is fully open source from the scratch. Without any exception. This allows you to easily modify and expand Shopware according to your needs. Furthermore, our invaluable Community lends their talent to the betterment of our open source product and creates new plugins for the Community Store every day.
The Community Edition is open source and licensed under the official open source (AGPL) license. Thus, you have free access to the Shopware source code and the ability to customize it.
Developers from around the world contribute changes and improvements to the Shopware source code. Thanks to these contributions, Shopware meets the highest standards.
With Shopware 5.2 we have released our Premium Plugins without encryption. This opens up completely new possibilities for adapting our plugins to meet specific needs.
Shopware is packed with the most forward-thinking and modern technology, which allow you to always be ready for the future. These technologies include PHP 7, the integration of Elasticsearch and an open API. The external libraries of Shopware are also updated to their most current versions.
Our ongoing test-driven development guarantees even the smallest update is held to the highest standard of quality. So you benefit from having a highly secure investment.
There is no secret behind our robust shop system - an elaborate software architecture coupled with a modern, sturdy core offer high performance under the hood.
Shopware’s open API is one titan of an interface, allowing you to connect with any third-party solution, create an individual connection or perform advanced customizations
Shopware is one of the first PHP based shop systems – coming November 2015, Shopware will be compatible with PHP 7.
From now on, the MySQL database – the database Shopware uses for storing, accessing and processing information – is supplemented by the very powerful Elasticsearch.
Up until now, programmers were reliant on ExtJS in order to develop extensions. Now it is possible to use other frameworks, such as jQuery, AngularJS or Ember.js.
The integration of blue-green deployment makes it possible for enterprise customers to safely perform Shopware updates on cluster systems. This works by installing the new Shopware version on just one application server as well as on the database. The systems that have yet to be updated work with the new database, keeping the downtime of the shop to a minimum.
The new composer integration makes it possible to build complex projects on Shopware and manage them via version control. At the same time, a Shopware project - including the basic shop and all adjustments – can be easily rolled out, installed and updated on servers. With this integration, Shopware offers a powerful tool for the development and administration of projects.
Shopware is modular and superbly versatile and flexible, thanks to an advanced plugin system. Extend the functional reach of your shop and make updates without making any compromises.To the Community Store
