We are extremely excited to announce Sylius Plus – the next step in the evolution of our product. After carefully gathering feedback from the community, customers and our partners, we introduce a commercial value-proposition that will get your business catalyzed*.
*Catalyze = cause or accelerate (a reaction) by acting as a catalyst.
Sylius is a next generation Open Source eCommerce Platform. Being built with PHP on top of the enterprise-grade Symfony framework, it is the most modern and stable foundation for professional eCommerce projects.
We are building our product to solve the challenge of selling online through various channels. “Websites” and “store views” are the assumption of the past. We focus on providing the foundation for the professional development of omnichannel eCommerce for Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs).
Not a framework anymore?
So far, we were positioning Sylius as the framework for eCommerce to emphasize our focus on great developer experience and the flexibility that allows implementing even the most challenging ideas. These will remain our core values but our solution has been successfully used as a replacement for the mainstream platforms and with the new naming we can reach a wider audience.
Sylius has been growing rapidly since its stable release in 2017. Daily installations have reached the 1000 level and it’s safe to say there are more than a 1000 applications running in production. Sylius is catalyzing hundreds of millions of EUR in transactions every year.
More and more impactful organizations use or consider Sylius. The market expectations for the product and our services have been only growing. In order to respond to this demand, we are introducing Sylius Plus – a powerful set of enterprise-grade features and much more.
Like many Open Source projects and software vendors, we are looking to find a balance between voluntary work with the community and monetization to better realize our purpose. As a community-driven and self-funded company, we are working hard to maintain our full autonomy and this is one of the solutions we believe will be the most efficient.
Becoming a Sylius Plus Customer comes with the following benefits over the “Free / On Your Own” strategy:
Sylius Plus ships with the complex to develop and expensive to maintain features that will reduce your business costs and minimize risks:
✔ Advanced Multi-Store
✔ Returns Management
✔ Advanced User Permissions
✔ Enhanced Performance, Security and Data Audit
✔ Multi-Source Inventory
More than just a software
We are not in the business of just selling licenses. A dedicated Customer Success Manager and our professional services and support teams are there for you. Leverage our Technical Support and eCommerce experience to ensure smooth operation and get most out of Sylius technology. For the challenging and mission-critical projects, we contribute our expertise accumulated from many Sylius implementations though Project Success Assistance.
We are 100% committed to continuing the development of the free edition. We expect to provide even more value for free to the community of developers and technical enthusiast thanks to the resources we gain from our new product sales. To prove that, together with Sylius Plus, we will be shipping a couple of new improvements:
As a fully independent business, without any outside pressure to grow faster than we want, we will continue community building, invest even more in events, user groups and listen carefully to our supporters and friends.
The license of the free and Open Source package available on GitHub is not affected and is still MIT. We will not remove any features.
We know where our roots are and we will continue listening to and working with the community as we did when making the decision about introducing Sylius Plus! All that being said, we prefer our actions to speak for themselves, thank you for your trust and let’s see what the future brings.

Instead of basing it on factors like the number of servers, users or products, we decided to implement fair, value-based pricing. It will allow us to help smaller businesses but also meet the expectations of even the most challenging projects by being able to reinvest into product development appropriately. The price of the annual subscription depends on the value of transactions going through Sylius Plus and there are no differences in feature availability.
