Laravel eCommerce FAQ

Questions most often asked about Aimeos eCommerce platform

It's available as both, an easy to install Laravel shop distribution and a Laravel ecommerce package. The first one is very easy to install while you can integrate the package into your own, already existing Laravel application.

The Aimeos Laravel shop distribution is a preconfigured setup based on the latest Laravel LTS release. It's an out of the box solution which is also prepared for multi-vendor setups. Contrary to the distribution, the Aimeos Laravel ecommerce package can be integrated into any existing Laravel application instead.

Yes, the Aimeos Laravel eCommerce platform is Open Source and available under the LGPLv3 licence. The Laravel integration itself is licensed using the MIT license. Both allow you to modify and/or redistribute the Aimeos source code. You can use it in any of your client projects for free and without restrictions.

Nothing! It's free of charge and, most importantly, you can use it for all your Laravel ecommerce projects without paying anything.

There are only a few extensions for B2B, marketplaces and #gigacommerce offered by the Aimeos company which are not available for free. In addition, the Aimeos company offers paid support if you need 1:1 developer support. They also offer support for all Aimeos LTS version up to five years.

Aimeos is much more lightweight. The Aimeos Laravel ecommerce platform only contains around 1/5th of the code of the Magento core for roughly the same feature set. In additon, the optimized data structures makes Aimeos extremely fast. You can achieve a render time down to 20ms for cached components without the problems of a full page cache as used by Magento.

It also scales much better than Magento. Magento works fine up to 50k products but will get slower and slower with more products. Contrary to Magento, Aimeos can utilize ElasticSearch of Solr as drop-in replacement for storing and/or searching/filtering products. Thus, building Laravel shops with 1,000,000,000+ products is possible without any performance loss by using the #gigacommerce extension.

Moreover, Laravel is currently the best PHP framwork. It's much easier to use than the old Zend framework Magento is based on and developers are more productive when using Laravel. There's also a lot of documentation and videos available for Laravel and it has a very big developer community.

Yes, you can use Aimeos to host an unlimited number of vendors within one Aimeos installation. Vendors will have their own frontend and backend so you can create Laravel ecommerce SaaS platforms similar to Shopify for example.

There's also a Laravel marketplace extension available to build (multi-level) marketplaces in Aimeos. Then, vendors manage their own products and all these vendor products are aggregated into one or more marketplaces. Customers can buy products from different vendors just like they can do at Amazon.

Yes, multi-language and multi-currency are the DNA of Aimeos. The Laravel ecommerce package supports an unlimited number of languages. It also has full support for right-to-left languages like Arabic in frontend and backend. Additionally, Aimeos included translations for 30+ languages.

Contrary to other solutions, Aimeos also has full multi-currency support. Where competitors only support one currency with fixed conversion rates, you can add individual prices for all currencies in Aimeos. Thus, your Laravel ecommerce shop can display 4.99€ instead of 5.04€ if your original product price is $5.99. Furthermore, you can combine multiple currencies with multi-level tier-pricing / block pricing for all product types supported by Aimeos.

Yes, the Aimeos frontend is fully SEO optimized and regularly tested against the Google SEO recommendations. You can also add your own meta tags for each category and product. Additionally, all products are machine-readable due to the included schema.org markup for structured data. Thus, Google and other search engines know your products, their names, images prices and stock level.

Yes, Aimeos uses Vue.js in the admin backend. It offers Vue.js components for a large number of building blocks which can be reused in custom panels easily.

If you want to create a frontend based on Vue.js, Aimeos offers a world class JSON REST API for retrieving and managing data. The API allows to you build a Vue.js frontend with the same feature set as the HTML based frontend.
