Questions and answers
Why is the B2Bsellers Suite based on Shopware 6?
The store system Shopware 6 is, in our opinion, the most future-proof store system, which is currently enjoying great international esteem and growth.
In addition, Shopware has created an impressive ecosystem that enables store operators and agencies to implement individual requirements quickly and efficiently, for example with the Shopware Store plugins.
But not only that. Especially the technical software architecture from Symfony as PHP framework, Vue.js and Bootstrap in the frontend includes technologies that we have mastered for years, are very popular among developers and are made for the highest requirements.
Finally, with the headless and API-first approach, Shopware 6 is perfectly equipped to build B2B portals and B2B platforms. We want to contribute to the Shopware ecosystem with the B2Bsellers Suite.
To which ERP systems is there an interface?
The B2Bsellers Suite is compatible with all Shopware 6 Standard ERP Interfaces. compatible. You can find all possible interfaces here. Through the many years of experience in B2B e-commerce, we know that you need a few more data than most standard ERP interfaces offer, however. (Examples: that all customers from the ERP are available in the store, that customer-specific prices are valid or that purchasing employees of your customers are invited as buyers). Old orders or "non" webshop orders should of course also end up in the store.
We at B2Bsellers have done everything possible for this:
- There is documentation of API endpoints, how your ERP system can send the data to the store.
- Through our connectors, you can easily fetch the data from the ERP REST API at regular intervals or upon login. These connectors are easily accessible through a Partner customizable.
As B2Bsellers, we also give you a 1,000€ discount* on the one-time license fee if your deployed ERP does not transmit the additional entities we want to Shopware. You can find more information about this here.
Already at the start of the beta phase we SAGE 100 as a partner. This means that all customers with a SAGE 100 about the Omniseller be able to use all the features of our B2Bsellers Suite.
How can other systems such as PIM or CRM be connected?
We extend Shopware 6 in many places and you can use the Shopware 6 documentation or our B2Bsellers documentation to integrate more data into Shopware or into the platform.
Partners have already developed interfaces or integrations to a service platform, configurators or similar. Since the B2Bsellers Suite is also API-driven and headless, further data is easy to integrate.
What distinguishes our solution from the Shopware Enterprise B2B edition?
One of the main differences compared to the Shopware Enterprise B2B edition is the range of functions and configuration options, because the Shopware B2B Suite was designed and developed more as a framework. Our B2Bsellers Suite, on the other hand, was developed as a complete solution with many configuration options. Additional plugins that can be integrated by Start are useful helpers in B2B commerce.
Another big difference is that B2Bsellers Suite allows you to build B2B platforms (customer portals), which are intended to serve as a portal for customers, their employees and the entire store operator sales team (field and internal sales) to collaborate.
Our functional scope also includes almost all functions from the Shopware Enterprise B2B suite.
Compare for yourself.
Our B2Bsellers Suite is primarily aimed at manufacturers and wholesalers who have B2B companies as customers. For such scenarios, we can map complex group structures, collective accounts, employee accesses and much more.
Why is the B2Bsellers Suite not available in the Shopware Store?
In short, we love the Shopware Community Store. However, our plugin structure currently doesn't allow us to show the same clear representation of this building block principle in the Shopware Store as we do here directly on the website.
Can the B2Bsellers Suite be customized?
Of course, the complete B2Bsellers Suite and all plugins can be customized to any customer requirement. We use all Shopware-known possibilities for this, such as subscribers, interfaces, Twig templates, Vue.js Components Override/Extend etc.
See for yourself in our developer onboarding video:
Who does the implementation?
The B2Bsellers Suite is sold exclusively via Partner implemented. You can find the list of our partners here. However, you can also contact your existing Shopware agency, because our B2B suite is built like a Shopware 6 plugin and is therefore also easy to extend and self-explanatory for a Shopware expert.
Is it possible to run the B2Bsellers Suite in the Shopware Cloud?
No, this is not possible - with the current specifications on the part of Shopware. In the Shopware Cloud, some of our extensions are not allowed, because we have, for example, extended the login process for employees or also the SalesChannelContext. These and other functions do not allow us to publish our extension as a "Shopware Cloud app".
At the moment, only the on-premise version is compatible, but this is probably also common in B2B projects.
Are there any special requirements for the server/hosting?
In short, no - Since B2Bsellers Suite is a 100% Shopware plugin, it is easy to install on a server or hosting package.
You can use various packages from all server/hosting providers, depending on your requirements and data volumes.
We can recommend hosting on PROFIHOST-There are special B2Bsellers packages that allow you to get started quickly.
How long does the implementation take?
Implementation times depend on how quickly your enterprise resource planning or other third-party systems are connected. All presented functions are out-of-the-box functions and ready for immediate use.
You will certainly want customizing features in your project. These can then also be developed by our partners and all Shopware agencies.
