What do you like best?

Modularity, flexibility and robustness of the software is very good. The software architecture is build on top of design patterns and follows principles (e.g. SOLID) and standards, which is simple awesome from developer perspective and really helps during the implementation phase of a project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of modules and a very fast developing from spryker side, which makes it not that easy to keep a project always up-to-date with the latest spryker modules - here the (mostly) independence of the modules helps you out in the end and also does not make it necessary to updated each single module all the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a developer you are not trapped within a fixed structure - you can easily overwrite and extend Spryker core features and you don't need hacky workarounds all the time - like in other e-commerce solutions. You don' t need to repeat yourself and implement standard-features all the time again. Spryker offers a lot of features out of the box - these features are implemented in a secure way and are tested intensively. You can care about the special requirements of your customer and stay focused on implement these. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like Spryker's out-of-the-box orientation to quality and scalability. It is easy to switch from one project to another using Spryker because the code structure is the same and the concepts are well enforced. Spryker has a large number of available modules to choose from which helps in implementing features faster. Spryker's Glue layer is a feature that may help to implement more exotic ecommerce solutions. Spryker's code quality tools enable teams to have unified quality standards. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Developing Spryker can sometimes be a bit tedious, quite a lot of boiler plate code is required. The learning curve is steep. The core code sometimes might be of higher quality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are implementing B2B and B2C ecommerce solutions. The main benefits are these:

a robust yet flexible product data structure that handles well a wide variety of business different cases;

a well thought-through application design that enables our clients to scale easily and effectively. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Spryker provides solutions to problems that are often encountered in e-commerce. It is scalable and provides standard e-commerce feature set out of the box. Spryker's code quality is great and it can be used as a reference as well as documentation helping out developers working on the product. Modular architecture allows for great team changeability (developers can switch teams without wasting time with on-boarding, as Spryker has unified structure) and with experienced developers quick time to market. Overall Spryker solves a lot of frequently encountered problems (asynchronous updates, cart, checkout, product storing/updating/viewing/administrating) and it implements a lot of design patterns, that enforces scalable, changeable and readable code avoiding long lasting project's issues related to legacy and outdated code. Due to modular architecture, it is possible for a larger team to work on Spryker without interfering with one another. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At first Spryker has a steep learning curve and a lot to take in, which might be discouraging. There is also a lot of boilerplate code, but keeping the benefits in mind it actually helps in the long term. In order to use Spryker effectively and efficiently experienced developers are required. For small projects, without big plans for the future, there is no sense to use Spryker as it would be a big overhead. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Spryker provides solutions for standard e-commerce problems using it's architecture and used technologies (e.g. elasticsearch, redis, rabbitMQ) and every technology as well as feature can be replaced and/or adjusted according to the needs. Spryker separates front-end from the back-end allowing to scale the application without any additional need to adjust and refactor the code base. The technology stack is already there and on top of that there are wrappers allowing for easier customization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Spryker Commerce OS focuses on flexibility first and foremost. Spryker is therefore built according to the API-first principle and follows the headless approach.

After implementing an MVP in 3 months, we could already see an increase in relevant KPI's with the first customers. Short-term goals such as a fast go-live were achieved and exceeded. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

(+) The modular and extendable nature of Spryker

(+) Well documented interfaces

(+) A lot of interesting features, most of which are features requested by customers

(+) Focus on scalable, cloud native architectures

(+) Free software based and open source development model Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

(-) While the core of Spryker is very stable, all frontend-facing features are less developed and refined

(-) A couple of must have features like Guest Checkout for B2B cases aren't easily installable, they must be deeply integrated into the code

(-) Versioning is a mess, upgrading is always a pain - even for Patch releases

(-) While using static typing in PHP can enhance legibility and stability of code, Spryker often over does this which makes it needlessly complex to work with Spryker Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are in a large-scale project that demands high amounts of customizability and you need a flexible eCommerce framework that you are willing to put some effort into, Spryker is for you. It will support the most demanding business needs but needs some care in return.

If you are just searching for a ready-made, bog standard eCommerce solution, consider something else and more light weight. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mid-sized to big eCommerce platforms with >= 100k products and complex search models. Sprykers modular approach to search, database and data structures make it extremely flexible for all kinds of use cases and scenarios. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The software architecture of Spryker enables good performance that comes along with good scalability and customization.

Speaking as a developer, it's fun to work with! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While the code architecture is one of Spryker's pros, it's also hard to start as a beginner. It takes some time to understand all of the concepts.

Documentation also sometimes lacks information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To build a future-proof e-commerce platform we needed a software that's open for all kinds of customizations and makes it possible to test new features in short time.

By building a API-first solution we're able to connect any kind of touchpoint that's currently used by our customers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Spryker doesn't start with the pure product offer, but first wants to understand our business, needs and expectations. This enabled us to form a good set up for the creation and realisation of the offer even bofire the start.

Very fast realisation of the project after the start of first quote.

What do you like best?

Best B2B eCom Functionality OOTB you can get on the market. Spryker is highly customizable according to your business needs and helps to scale your ecommerce business model. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Relatively high efforts to maintain and update Spryker OS. To implement Spryker a really good and experienced development team is required. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Spryker OS you can implemented new features with speed and build prototypes in no time. The large base of OOTB eCommerce functionality help you to start with a really good base to adapt the features to your needs according to eCommerce best practices which work for successful players in the eCommerce market. There is no need to reinvent every functionality.

On top Spryker is capable to handle large amount of data and interfaces which is a standard scenario in B2B eCommerce where the OS Commerce mostly serves as a business logic layer and the master data is distributed within other systems (ERP, PIM, etc.). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Spryker is a large modular construction kit with a very tidy code base.

It uses the advantages of recognized technologies (e.g. RabbitMQ, Jenkins, Elasticsearch, etc.) and combines them into a suite that makes the creation of an online store very fast. The closeness of the developers to the community is very visible and suggestions from the community are taken into account, which I consider a big advantage over the competition. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You can see that the majority of Spryker developers use MacOS/Ubuntu based systems for development.

Here it would be nice if the focus would be set on Windows and WSL2 so that developers using this environment can use the framework more easily.

Also, unfortunately only very outdated software versions are used (e.g. Elasticsearch 5.6 vs 7.9.1, PostgreSQL 10.6 vs 13, etc.). Here you should pay a bit more attention to the newer versions.

The documentation could also be made easier and more detailed for new developers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Spryker we were able to replace our old Ruby-based B2C and B2B stores and are more than happy about it. Spryker has proven to be faster and less error-prone than the old Ruby versions. In any case we are planning further implementations with the framework. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not mature yet, Spryker decisions sometimes not understandable (DB switch), no communication about it, rather junior in some fields (PaaS), documentation in some areas outdated, third party modules not timed in roadmap (FirstSpirit connector, PSP modules, Marketplace module ... ), no real issue tracking, communication delays.

What do you like best?

Due to the modular structure it is very easy to extend and change the existing code. In addition, the GLUE API ensures that a completely different front end can be connected. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Due to some legacy code that is not yet adapted to today's Spryker state, it is sometimes more time-consuming to extend and modify old code at project level. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Due to the modular design and following the SOLID principles, the code is maintainable and easy to replace. In addition, individual Spryker packages can be updated, removed, and added without having to update the entire system. This saves time and money that can be spent on actual development.

What do you dislike?

Status/Maturity level of third party modules (e.g. payment, connectors to other systems) and status of default features. Often not completely implemented/fully fleshed functionality in comparisson to other e-Commerce systems. Issue tracking only via webform + mail. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly B2B and partly B2C webshop scenarios, especially in MVP / green field projects. Relatively easy setup of local dev environment (since Docker; still some problems still linked to Updates and Docker SDK). Most basic concepts (infrastructure/architecture) used in Spryker are a good foundation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
