This module manages all available manufacturers in your shop. Furthermore, it is also possible to edit and add manufacturers. The respective manufacturer can optionally be provided with a logo, a link and a description in addition to the name. In the standard version, the logo, name and description are made available in the shop frontend.


All manufacturers are displayed in a table. By clicking on a line, you can select a desired manufacturer. By clicking on the detail button (1), the right sidebar unfolds and shows more detailed information, e.g. an available manufacturer logo.

Creating a new Manufacturer

Click on "Add" to create a new manufacturer.


The manufacturer name (1) is a mandatory field. All other fields are optional.

The input window looks as follows:

In the master data area, you can enter a manufacturer page title (2), the URL (3) to the manufacturer page, a description (4) and a logo (5) of the manufacturer.

SEO information can also be added to the respective manufacturer master data. These are the fields Description (6) and Keywords (7) (as well as the manufacturer page title (2) from the manufacturer master data), which you can fill in as desired. This information, like all other SEO information, is then output in the source text of the corresponding manufacturer page.

You can also adjust the SEO URL in the SEO settings under Settings > Basic settings > Storefront > SEO/Router settings according to your wishes.

You also have the option of conveniently integrating free text fields (8) at various points in the shop via your backend. Of course, you can also create and manage free text fields for the manufacturer module, e.g. to maintain further information about the manufacturer, e.g. a free text field that contains contact details for the manufacturer or links to their social media sites. You can find more information on managing free text fields here.

Description and URL can optionally be displayed in the frontend.

Manufacturer logo on the article detail page

Since Shopware 5, the manufacturer logo is displayed directly on the item detail page (1).


Clicking on the logo will take you to the manufacturer listing, where you will be shown the manufacturer's description and other articles from the manufacturer.

Manufacturer-Page in the frontend


Edit a manufacturer

Clicking on the "pencil icon" opens a new mask that allows editing of an existing manufacturer. Here the editable fields are available again. The same applies to adding a new manufacturer.

Delete a manufacturer

By clicking on the "Delete" icon, an individual manufacturer can be deleted. A dialogue window follows in which this deletion process must be confirmed again. It is also possible to mark several manufacturers via a checkbox. In this way, different manufacturers can be deleted at once. A manufacturer can only be deleted if no more articles are assigned to it.
