The advantages of open source shop systems like Magento and Shopware
When choosing a shop system, it is not the costs that should be decisive, but above all the future viability of the technology. What possibilities are offered for further development, configuration, design, etc.? In this respect, open source software is way out in front.
But what actually is open source software? Open source means “open source”, i.e. the source code is freely accessible to e-commerce developers all over the world. Because of this, we are not the only ones who have always appreciated open source shop systems. There is a large community that constantly improves the software and expands it with high frequency with new modules, variants, optimisation suggestions and solution approaches, which other systems usually cannot offer. In addition, open source systems also have tangible strategic advantages, such as independence, flexibility, innovation and often a high degree of internationality. Whether and why an online shop based on open source would be worthwhile for you in the long term is something we would be happy to explain to you in a non-binding consultation.
Our shop system solutions for your e-commerce
What does a B2B shop system need to be able to do?
In B2B online sales for entrepreneurs, there are a number of differentiations to be made in comparison to a consumer shop in terms of the features that a business customer shop system needs in any case to enable your users to shop efficiently. In our experience, buyers value the following functions most in high-performance business shops, in addition to the usual search and filter functions.

The Shopware open source shop system has all of these necessary B2B functions as well as many other possible out-of-the-box extensions that we can implement for you according to your requirements. With igniti as your Shopware agency at your side, your entry into digital business will be a lasting success and you will soon be able to experience how free and flexible B2B e-commerce can be.

What should be considered for a B2C shop system?
If private individuals are your main target group, then you should focus on other features when selecting a shop system, even if the basic requirements remain the same. Private online shopping is emotional and intuitive and should be fun for the user. Since online shops for end customers are much more widespread, the range of shop systems is also larger and a certain standardisation has occurred over time. In order for a shop software to be able to keep up with the masses, basic functions for end-customer shops are a must.
However, if you want to offer your customers more than just an 0815 online shop, but would rather stand out with a few extra features, you have to reckon with additional effort. Put this in the hands of e-commerce experts. We look forward to getting to know you and your B2C e-commerce project and to giving you an insight into the world of possibilities in end-customer commerce, which we can incorporate into your online shop if you wish.
Functions of a B2C shop:
- Multiple filter options
- Product comparisons
- Multiple product images
- Responsive design
- Shopping cart
- Different payment methods
