Migrating from Shopware 5
to Spryker

Unlocking Growth and Agility
for Your E-Commerce Business

Shopware has announced that extended support for Shopware 5 will officially end in February 2025, followed by the complete discontinuation of security updates in 2027. This means that continuing with Shopware 5 after these dates exposes your store to critical security vulnerabilities and hinders access to future advancements in ecommerce technology.

While Shopware 5 has served many businesses well, the ever-evolving landscape of ecommerce demands a solution built for scalability, flexibility, and future-proof technology. This one-pager outlines the key reasons why migrating to Spryker can empower your business to achieve its full potential.

Why Move from Shopware 5?

  • Limited Scalability: Shopware 5’s monolithic architecture can struggle to handle high traffic volumes and complex product catalogs, hindering performance and growth.
  • Restricted Customization: Deep customization within Shopware 5 often requires complex development, making it inflexible for unique business needs and integrations.
  • Outdated Technology Stack: Shopware 5’s reliance on PHP 5.6 poses security risks and limits access to the latest advancements in ecommerce technology.

Why Choose Spryker?

Migrating from Shopware 5 to Spryker offers a multitude of benefits, addresses the shortcomings of Shopware 5 and provides a platform for future-proof innovation. This transition ensures seamless adaptation to evolving market demands while fostering sustainable growth.

Key Benefits of Migrating:

Superior Scalability
Unmatched Customization
Future-Proof Technology
If you anticipate significant growth in traffic or product offerings, Spryker’s microservices architecture ensures smooth scaling without performance bottlenecks, unlike Shopware 6’s monolithic structure.
If your business requires extensive customization beyond standard features, Spryker’s headless architecture and API-first approach offer unparalleled flexibility, while Shopware 6 relies on plugins that may not meet your specific needs.
For businesses prioritizing long-term stability and access to the latest advancements, Spryker’s foundation on modern technologies like PHP 8 and Symfony provides a future-proof solution, compared to Shopware 6’s proprietary tech stack.

Integration Needs

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Reduced Time-to-Market
If your business relies on complex integrations with external systems, Spryker’s API-centric approach simplifies the process, while Shopware 6 might require custom development for similar integrations.
Ignoring Shopware 5’s sunset could lead to costly security breaches, compatibility issues, and missed opportunities for innovation. Migrating to Spryker now provides a future-proof foundation for sustainable growth and lower long-term costs.
Spryker’s agile architecture empowers you to adapt quickly to market trends and launch new features faster, giving you a competitive edge.
