Leader in the ecommerce platforms category for the first time
Having already been recognized as a High Performer in the__ ecommerce platform category __last spring and summer 2022, we have now been honored as a Leader for the first time in fall 2022. This fulfills us with special pride!
To be considered in the ecommerce platforms category, the software needs to support companies operating their ecommerce business on a single, standardized platform. The award is ultimately given to companies with a high market presence and high customer satisfaction scores.
We are very happy about the recognition. The advancement from High Performer to Leader highlights Shopware's growing market presence as well as high customer satisfaction scores. In addition, the Leader award shows that we have taken another significant step in the right direction, especially in relation to our goal of pursuing our vision. From our point of view, the new placement in the Leader quadrant demonstrates that steady growth and continuous performance go hand in hand with consistent recognition. Therefore, we are extremely positive about the future and are working at full throttle on the further development of our product.
The fact that continuous performance results in steady growth are also emphasized by the award we received at the European level. In the G2 Europe Report, we were ranked as a leader in the ecommerce platform category in the fall of 2022. This means that we stand out across Europe thanks to our high market presence and particularly high customer satisfaction scores. We are very pleased about the growing support at the European level and are proud to have been awarded this new outstanding position on the Europe Grid® for ecommerce platforms.What the G2 Grid® is all about, we will tell you soon.
High Performer in the G2 Mid-Market Report
Not only on a European level do we appreciate the new award from G2 - thanks to high customer satisfaction scores in the midmarket, but we were also once again able to earn recognition in the G2 Mid-Market Report in the fall of 2022.
We are proud that Shopware is a key ecommerce solution for mid-market companies and are delighted to gain the award as a high performer based on high customer satisfaction scores.
An award from our community - for our community
In addition to the three awards in the ecommerce platforms category, Shopware also gained valuable badges in other categories.

Only providers that have received over 20 reviews on the G2 rating platform and have a G2 star rating of at least 4 out of 5 possible stars are nominated for the users-love-us badge.
Since Shopware has 54 reviews on G2 with an average of 4.4 out of 5 possible stars, we can proudly announce: Our users love us!
We would like to dedicate our award to our unique community. We love you, too!
Leader in the multichannel retail category
In both the Spring and Summer of 2022, Shopware was already able to convince as ecommerce software in the Multichannel Retail category and was awarded as a Leader. Thanks to our continuous performance, a high market presence, and excellent customer satisfaction scores, Shopware now also stands out decisively from other providers in this area in the G2 Fall Report 2022. The distinction as__ a leader __not only confirms that Shopware is one of the leading multichannel commerce solutions but also shows that we are an important player for global users in the ever-evolving world of digital commerce.
But why is a good multichannel commerce software crucial?
Nowadays, many retailers use different sales channels to reach their customers. If these are managed separately, there is a high probability that customers will get lost or have an unsatisfactory shopping experience when switching between channels.
A__ multichannel commerce software__ with a high degree of automation in product line control is therefore of fundamental importance to achieve sustainable and structured growth as a merchant. It ensures the synchronization of all product data within an ecommerce business in a central data repository.
Shopware is not only a multichannel commerce software, as a holistic solution for omnichannel commerce, it also offers much more. Besides offering customers a smooth and consistent shopping experience across all sales channels, our software also simplifies the day-to-day operations of an ecommerce business by providing a 360-degree view across all processes, inventory levels, and orders. With our software, we offer merchants the ideal basis to successfully handle and grow on different sales channels.
Side note: Which methods does G2 use to rank software solutions in the Grid®?
With the aim of making B2B procurement transparent, G2 lists, structures and rates software and providers based on different guidelines, methods, and data. Product reviews by users and aggregated information from online sources and social networks are all considered. G2 applies a specific algorithm to this data to determine values for customer satisfaction and market presence, which form the two axes of a respective G2 Grid® in a software category.
The G2 Grid® ranks software providers in these four quadrants: Contenders, Leaders, Niche & High Performers.
The satisfaction score is influenced by the following factors:
- Customer satisfaction with specific product features
- Popularity and statistical significance based on the number of reviews received
- Quality and comprehensiveness of the reviews received
- Age and topicality of the reviews
- Overall customer satisfaction based on the Net Promoter Score (NPS)
The figure for market presence is derived from a combination of 15 metrics. Thereby, G2 reviews, publicly available information and external sources are considered and measured using the following criteria:
- Number of employees
- Number and topicality of the reviews
- Web presence
- Social media presence
- Growth (including personnel growth and growth of the web presence)
- Age of the provider
- Employee satisfaction and commitment
The awards are given quarterly according to the software’s ranking within the four quadrants of the G2 Grid®.
And how do companies benefit from the G2 Grid®?
In the ever-growing technology sector, companies have an overwhelming number of software products to choose from. So, the question arises: How do I choose the right solution? The G2 Grid® provides help in the form of an overview and can be used by companies for product comparisons and analyzing market trends to quickly choose the best software for their business.
