We are proud to announce the official launch of the Sylius Solution Partner Program. This is a huge milestone for the community and our company.
We have received more than 100 applications already and from this pool we have qualified a lot of great companies, who are now being trained and on-boarded to the program. With all the processes and systems in place, we are ready to open up the program to a wider audience and start promoting it more actively. If you are still waiting for some feedback from our side, please know that we will be following-up on all applications very soon.
After the stable release of Sylius, we got a very positive feedback about our technology. Our Open Source community is growing every day. We have just reached a milestone of 1000+ users registered to our Slack. The number of Sylius developers keeps increasing and that’s extremely exciting to experience all that growth!
That being said, to achieve another level, we also need to build a healthy business ecosystem, where brands, retailers, startups & solution providers can grow by collaborating in a dynamic, reliable and trustworthy Sylius market.
By recommending trained and accredited official partners we ensure that new Sylius implementations are going to be successful projects of high quality. The partners undergo a comprehensive training, which covers not only best practices in code but also project management, plugin development and marketing. All this allows them to deliver a lot more value for the customers. We believe that a large number of successful customers results in a successful Sylius ecosystem.
There is a lot of functionalities that specific Sylius implementations need. Our framework was constructed to solve 80% of the most common eCommerce problems, which makes it an exceptionally light and fast solution. Our plugin system allows you to extend the core functionality and reuse components across multiple projects.
Again, Open Source is not a solo game, we can’t and shouldn’t develop all the extensions. That’s why our amazing partners together with the rest of the community will develop both free and paid plugins, which can drastically reduce the cost of development on top of Sylius framework.
We believe Sylius should focus on the core eCommerce functionality and integrate with the best tools in the category. We are working closely with our partners to develop the most desired integrations in the community and share them with the rest of the ecosystem in order to bring down the development costs.
We are happy to inform that the first partnerships have already been formed and you can browse the first official Sylius Solution Partners here.

We will recommend your services to potential customers and other partners.
