Shop systems and CMS are optimized for different requirements: a shop system is focused on technically implementing the sale of goods, while a content management systems facilitates the creation of extensive multimedia content. If content strategy and online sales are to be combined, both systems must come into play.
The TYPO3 Connector connects the CMS TYPO3 with the shop system Shopware and combines the strengths of both systems. Shopware functionalities such as shopping cart status or articles are displayed and linked in the TYPO3 frontend as content elements. For example, an existing company website can add a shop without operating a separate domain.
