The Flow Builder

Automate your business processes with the most intuitive no-code interface

The Flow Builder allows you to define and perform highly individual business processes all in one place and without having to write a single line of code.

Automate complex business procedures, create flows to perform specific tasks, and let business events trigger your pre-defined course of actions.

Not only do you save time and resources by implementing effective workflows, you also benefit from faster reaction times, more flexibility and more control over your business operations.

Take your business to the next level

The Flow Builder allows you to respond to business triggers in creative ways that can be tailored to your specific needs. Triggers can be internal events in Shopware or events within a third-party application. This is particularly interesting for complex business models, where standard procedures simply aren’t sufficient.

For example, if you offer a varied range of products – or even customisable products. If you serve a large, international customer base that requires sophisticated segmentation. Or if you wish to automate and simplify complex workflows with your staff as well as your suppliers.

The Flow Builder is one of Shopware's many features that empowers you to design your business model exactly as you wish. Build Shopware to suit your needs – not the other way around. With Shopware you're not locked into a limited system landscape that is holding you back from scaling your business and turning ambitious business ideas into reality.

Line background

What are the technical requirements?

The Flow Builder will be standard in all Shopware 6 editions – both in Shopware’s self-managed solutions as well as in the cloud. However, in its initial stages after the launch, the self-managed Professional Edition and Enterprise Edition will offer you the most comprehensive flow options without writing code.

But we're not stopping there! With Shopware's open commerce approach you benefit from a worldwide network of developers, constantly evolving the platform further. The Flow Builder will be as flexible as you need it to be, and can be developed and extended in all possible ways to suit your specific requirements.
