Product resources


Via the feature "resources" in the item details, you can provide your customers with additional information on your shop's items. You can link to internal and external sites containing further information or provide a download. This feature is regularly used to make PDF-files available, for example an item's user or service manual. The corresponding settings can be found in the tab "Resources" in the item's details.

Shopware enables you to add further information to your items by e.g. including links in the respective item's description.

Backend settings

  • Link (2): The URL, to which you want to link, is entered here. Note that you will have to include a "http://" or "https://" prefix in the URL for it to work. You will be prompted with an error if you forget about this. The field may also not be empty.
  • Name (1): Here you can edit how the link will be displayed in the frontend. If you leave the field empty, the raw URL will be shown in the frontend.
  • Add link (3): This button confirms the added link. Any missing or corrupted information will be blocked by the backend.
  • Created links (4): Lists all links, that have been added to the item.

Frontend display

The links will be displayed at the end of the item's description, next to the standard links "Do you have any questions concerning this product?" and "Further products by Supplier".


Shopware enables you to add further information to your items by e.g. including a download in the respective item's description. This is useful for providing user manuals in PDF form or other service documents.

You can also offer your files as MP3, MP4 or ZIP. However, CSV and XML files cannot be offered.

Settings in the backend

The settings are similar to the ones described earlier. Respectively the field "file" is used to select the file, you want to add to the item, from the Media manager. "Name" sets the displayed name in the frontend. The button "Add download" confirms the settings.

Frontend display

Downloads are displayed under the "Related links" and will open in a new tab by default.
