What is a Shop System?
A shop system is software on the basis of which online shops are operated. Such programs contain a payment system and an inventory management system in the back end, in which all data on the products, their inventory and the ongoing processes converge. In the front end, a shop system ensures an appealing and, in the best case, user-friendly presentation of the products on offer. As with common pure content management systems, shop systems usually do not require any programming skills to manage a shop page.
Shop operators can use individual solutions or ready-made software, the latter being available as paid models with license fees or as open source.
Well-known and proven shop systems include Magento, WooCommerce, IONIS, Shopify, Gambio and the system we use, Shopware, which can be used in a free variant and the paid version 'Professional Edition'.
