Shop update to shopware

Keep up with the rapid pace of digitalization now! Why does it make sense to update from Shopware 5 to 6?

Shopware 5 will be officially supported until 2024. However, there are hardly any new functions at the moment. Instead, the developers are focusing all their energy on advancing the new solution: Shopware 6. A migration from Shopware 5 to Shopware 6 is thus the logical consequence for all those who want to keep up with the rapid pace of innovations in e-commerce.
A migration makes your company future-proof and helps you stay on the safe side – both in regard to the technology as well as legal considerations. However, an automatic update is not possible in this case due to the use of new technologies. The migration must be carried out manually – preferably by an established Shopware partner such as valantic.

What is Shopware 6, and what advantages does it bring?

Optimized functions. More flexibility. Less complexity.

Shopware 6 has already been on the market for more than two years. The current version is a technically mature, scalable and powerful solution for business models in the B2C and B2B sectors. The ecosystem of plugins and interfaces has grown considerably compared to Shopware 5.

Many online stores have already switched to the latest version. According to the provider, working with Shopware has become easier and even more flexible – and both we and our customers agree! But how exactly does Shopware 6 differ from its predecessor, Shopware 5? We’ve summarized the most important differences for you.

Advantages of Shopware 6 at a glance

  • easier integration with other systems thanks to an API-first approach
  • frontend (storefront) and backend (content management) detached from each other
  • improved performance (e.g., faster load times) due to new technologies
  • shopping worlds become more configurable and customizable
  • possibility to create new company sales channels (e.g., language stores with their own storefront instead of sub-stores)
  • If you have Shopware 5.7 and upwards, there’s no need to switch to a new PHP framework.
  • lower maintenance requirements due to modern and future-proof infrastructure
  • up to date in terms of data protection
  • improved customer experience when shopping in the online store

These and other changes mean, on the one hand, the simplified use of the software solution. On the other hand, they bring with them an increased focus on the needs of online store users. Just like valantic, Shopware is focusing on a holistic customer experience.
