Magento vs Shopware - sales platforms analysis

Choosing the right sales platform is a matter that defines many aspects: what kind of e-commerce you want to build, how you will use it, and what consumer experience your customers will have. We prepared the analysis that will help you choose and find the answer: which one fits your business best.

Magento 2 and Shopware 6 are open-source solutions, that can be freely developed and modified. However, they hold many significant differences that make them dedicated to different target groups. We present a compilation of these two systems based on many categories. This analysis will help you choose and find the answer: which one fits your business best.

Measurable benefits

Shopware 6 is distinguished from the competition by the price transparency of the implementation and maintenance of the e-commerce system. Each package is based on a one-time fee for using the system, regardless of the turnover results achieved by the store or the number of products it will contain.

Further savings are generated because of the exceptional simplicity and intuitiveness of the implementation. That minimizes the effort and reduces programmers' time to create an e-store.

With pre-built modules for various markets, it facilitates rapid store deployment while ensuring brand integrity. Additionally, its robust B2B capabilities and automation tools streamline operations, making it possible to create modern sales tools that can be adapted to any business.

It excels in meeting the needs of advanced, scalable B2B projects internationally and medium-sized enterprises looking to establish a unique brand identity and leverage flexible service functions. At the same time, it is well-suited for businesses just beginning with their e-commerce journey, offering user-friendly features and customization options.

Tailored for B2B enterprises specializing in complex product sales, Shopware 6 introduces innovative features to optimize sales platform management and enhance the customer purchasing process. Apart from a user-friendly interface, API-based structure, and robust marketing capabilities, those are:

  • Shopping experiences for targeted marketing,
  • Rule builder for customized sales conditions,
  • and Manual customer visibility for traditional order channels.

Simultaneously, the platform boasts a Flow builder, File transmission optimization, and Dynamic pricing adjustment, further streamlining operations and ensuring high performance even when dealing with extensive product offerings.

Certainly! Shopware 6 comes with various free and paid plugins (available at the Shopware Store) that can be web-based or self-hosted, making your online shop more adaptable. However, it is essential to note that Shopware 6 does not support the installation of plugins that were used in Shopware 5. This is because several features of the new system version are features that previously required the installation of plugins. Therefore, it is best to work with a service provider who can provide any missing functionalities that are not yet available.

The Shopware Starter edition is free of charge. It offers a user-friendly interface, comprehensive features, and seamless integrations with popular payment and shipping providers, allowing you to swiftly launch and grow your online store without technical complexities. In contrast, Shopware Enterprise is a more complex edition designed for B2B and B2C business models. It guarantees scalability, high performance, security, personal support, and gives you access to specialized knowledge through certifications and customer service. Due to its premium functionalities, it is priced individually.
The cost of creating a Shopware 6 online store can vary significantly from one project to another. It is highly individualized and depends on various factors, such as the complexity of your e-commerce requirements, the size of your product catalogue, the level of customization needed, and any additional features or integrations. After getting acquainted with your unique project specifications, we will determine and then provide you with a detailed estimate.
Shopware 6 offers seamless integration capabilities through its API, enabling effortless connection with various applications and systems, including ERP, CRM, and PIM, as well as with marketplaces, shipping, and payment providers. Additionally, it ensures secure sharing of the store platform, allowing for device connectivity with customers and enabling sales across diverse channels.
As Shopware 6 offers features and capabilities that cater to the specific needs of B2B companies, including the ability to create personalized and complex pricing structures, manage bulk orders, handle multiple customer groups, and support various payment and shipping options, it is an excellent choice for B2B companies looking to establish and expand their online presence while providing a seamless experience for their business customers.
Start with planning and analysis. Extract data from Shopware 5 and determine new store features. Once you have a clear picture of what must be done, set specific action dates based on this analysis and proceed to the Migration phase. Automate the process as much as possible, and if any data cannot be automated, manually transfer it to the new store. Then, move on to the Reboot phase, during which data is automatically moved to Shopware 6 while the store continues to run on version 5. You must implement settings, configurations, and plugins during this stage. And finally, the launch. Conduct thorough testing to identify inconsistencies before deactivating the old store and fully transitioning to Shopware 6. Be careful; this step is crucial to ensure your new store is error-free.
During the migration, you can transfer critical data elements, including product information, customer records, and order history. This comprehensive data migration allows you to maintain continuity in your online store’s operations, ensuring that your product catalogue, customer accounts, and order data seamlessly transition to the new platform. Additionally, some slightly more complex areas are stored in different locations or formats in Shopware 6. These include SEO settings, shipping and payment methods, transitioning from Shopping Worlds to Shopping Experiences, and new project templates.
Migrating from Shopware 5 to Shopware 6 will preserve much of your core data, such as products, customers, and orders. However, it is essential to note that the functionalities in the older version may not be identical to the new one. Shopware 6 offers a more modern and flexible architecture, and while many features from Shopware 5 can be replicated or enhanced, the way they are implemented or configured might change. Nevertheless, we will ensure that the necessary functionalities are retained or improved during migration.
What truly distinguishes Shopware 6, apart from its modern, modular architecture, is its user-centric design, ensuring a seamless experience for store owners and customers, even those with limited technical expertise. The platform’s API-first approach fosters easy integration with various systems, enhancing adaptability and interoperability. At the same time, its active community and ongoing innovation contribute to its appeal as a dynamic and competitive e-commerce solution, making it an excellent choice for businesses seeking a modern, user-friendly, and forward-thinking platform to build their online stores.
Magento 2 excels with its extensive community support and capability for highly advanced online stores, but its complexity and high costs may be prohibitive for some. Shopware 6, on the other hand, features a user-friendly interface and shorter implementation time, making it more accessible to less technically inclined users.
When choosing between Shopware 6 and Magento 2, it is crucial to note that each solution has its strengths and is suitable for different businesses. Magento 2 is well-suited for large e-commerce operations that serve a substantial customer base. Shopware 6, however, is committed to continuous development, combining various features to cater to diverse needs. Ultimately, the choice depends on the specific needs and technical expertise of your business.
