With the free open source edition you can set up your own shop and operate it in a hosting environment. Please note that the Community Edition does not include manufacturer support.
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.
Cater to your customers with individualised product offers using the new Customer Streams. 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. Customer Steams work perfectly together with Product Steams.
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.
Subshop licences are a direct part of Shopware’s core and integrated free of charge. Subshops make it possible to implement either large-scale projects with different language shops or quickly and inexpensively target groups, making it all the easier for you to build your ideal online shop.
