Shopware 5



Certainly today everyone has an association with the word migration. In a software project, a migration always means a new beginning. At the same time this also means effort and planning work for you. You have to think about many things and plan how the migration process should run. Whatever feelings and premonitions you associate with a migration - this guide should provide you with all relevant information and support you in your decision, when the right time is for you to rely on Shopware 6. 

The known extension Shopware ERP powered by Pickware is no longer available in Shopware 6 and is therefore no longer an integral part. You can find all Shopware 6 compatible integrations in the store.

Please note: if you have already initiated a migration, the process can be continued or completed. To create a new migration environment, it is necessary to select and book one of the new plans. Therefore, it makes sense to use the migration environment if you want to finally switch from Shopware 5 to Shopware 6. Users of the Community Edition can create a migration environment at any time.
This topic is addressed in more detail in the section Migration environment.
