Shopware is uplifting its game!
In the sea of so many eCommerce applications and software, it was important for Shopware to stay focused to capture the right market and deliver the right product to the right customers. Shopware highlighted the importance of focusing on the last partner day. It made sense after they launched their new pricing plans. Growth, Strategy, and success are strongly connected to ‘Focus’. Shopware’s brand positioning and focus became very clear after the launch of the new pricing plans.
With the recent changes to the pricing, Shopware made it very clear that it is the right fit for the Mid-Market merchants, especially for Upper mid-market Merchants. What does it mean? Shopware is the best fit for you if you are a growing eCommerce business doing a revenue of $5 Million to $50 Million a year. You can start considering Shopware once you enter the Million Club. Shopware as a solution is very efficient for businesses in Mid-Market as they have enough volume to utilize all the features that Shopware offers and they get assured stability from Shopware so that the businesses can focus on what they do the best.
This is a very smart move from Shopware. While other players are moving away from Mid-market players or the players who are not able to understand the needs of Mid-market merchants, Shopware is trying to focus on them and build a product that would bring them the most value.
