Extending Shopware

There are already a lot of extensions available in the Shopware store.

After setting up Shopware locally for development, you can start with our extension guides in the documentation.

The preferred way of extending Shopware is through the App System. If the feature you want to implement needs direct access to the Shopware process and the database, you can also use the plugin system.
You can find an overview and differentiation in the documentation.

Production setup

The easiest way to run a Shopware shop is booking a commercial plan in the Shopware cloud, a fully managed setup, ready to use.

The recommended way for on-premise shops is installing Shopware through the flex template. To unlock the full potential Shopware has to offer, commercial plans are also available for on-premise.
These plans enrich your shop with unique functionality, giving you an additional advantage over your competition.

There is a list of hosting partners, who offer a pre-installed shop, making your start a lot faster.

We also provide a web-based installer, the documentation walks you through the necessary steps.
