True Open Source E-commerce

Running on OSL 3.0

The Power of Community

Merchants want fast development times, even for complex features. Our idea was to build a product that is affordable for merchants, fast to develop, simple to use, ready for the demands of the global market, and open source.

It’s a platform packed with features, has endless extendability, and is ready for anything. Our community is thriving, and new addons are being developed all the time. Welcome to the world of true open source ecommerce.

  • Community Driven – Shuup stays ahead of ecommerce trends by taking features that our community needs.

  • Merchant Requirements – We add what merchants need to our platform. By listening to our community and clients, our platform evolves with must have features.

  • Features for all – Because we are Open Source, all features added to Shuup Open Source Ecommerce will be available for everyone.
