Spree Commerce embraces the cutting-edge technology used by leading developers. Our popular open source framework is based on the popular Ruby on Rails platform. The Spree Commerce hub relies on a powerful JSON API which makes it dead simple to build or customize existing integrations with third party vendors. This allows you to focus on building on the perfect storefront experience for your customers while we take care of managing the complexity of backend integration.
Spree Commerce provides an open source e-commerce framework you can use for building your storefront. The open source storefront software is licensed as New BSD which means you can use and modify it for commercial purposes free of charge. There is also a comprehensive set of documentation available for both developers and non-developers alike.
As growing businesses know, the real complexity comes in your backend operations. Paying customers have access to the Spree Commerce hub which is an enterprise solution designed to help you manage this complexity. By automating systems for shipping, fulfillment, inventory, accounting and customer service, the Spree Commerce hub lets you focus on what’s most important -- your brand, your products, and your customers.
Spree Commerce is under continuous development and we are always adding new features based on the real world experience of thousands of developers worldwide. Our open source storefront framework is consistently one of the Top 25 trending projects on Github out of 7.8 million repositories! It has received more than 10,000 contributions from over 400 different contributors and has been translated into 35 different languages. The Spree Commerce hub is also rapidly evolving. New features and integrations are constantly being added and we're working on building a huge library of open source integrations that can be used with the Spree Commerce hub.
Whether you're using the open source framework or the Spree Commerce hub, you will always have complete control over the experience. With the storefront software, the source code is freely available, and you have complete control over the appearance and functionality of your store. If you are a paid customer using our hub, you will be able to completely configure the flow of messages and interaction between integrations. This allows you to build a custom solution that conforms to your exact business requirements. You can even build your own custom endpoints (or fork one of the many open source ones) to integrate with specialized third party systems.
