Shopware United Community Directory


Shopware United is introducing the Shopware United Community Directory to provide the first ‘Open to All’ directory tool for the Shopware ecosystem.

Anyone who offers services or software to the Shopware ecosystem can participate as members of Shopware United (and hence the Shopware Community). This will allow Shopware end users (i.e. merchants) to search through the full range of Shopware service and product providers and find the ones most suitable to their needs. The directory will include agencies, freelancers, app and extension developers, consultants and integrated technology platforms.
