Shopware or Magento? It’s an eternal question. Anyhow, this article intends to try to answer it, comparing these two e-commerce giants by the following indicators:

  • Convenience in use;
  • Customization;
  • Technical support;

Convenience in use

Shopware 6 is famous for its intuitive and simple design. It is a good choice for merchants who want to avoid complexities in their online business management. Shopware administrative panel can be easily customized with any coding skills.

Magento 2 has a more complicated interface, compared to Shopware. It often requires at least minimal coding skills, so it’s not suitable for inexperienced sellers who only start their e-commerce path.

Customization

Both platforms are highly-customizable due to their open-source nature.

Magento provides more than 5 000 free and paid extensions, leaving room for realizing the most exceptional ideas.

Technical support

Both Shopware and Magento have a wide community of developers and dedicated vendors.

The Shopware community comprises nearly 40 000 members, but it’s growing by the day. Another support option is support services, which are available at extra cost.

Scalability

Shopware is mostly used for small and middle-size businesses, but if you need more sophisticated functions, you can always get the Shopware Enterprise edition for an additional fee.
