Spree Commerce Partner Network
Spree Partner Network is an opportunity for Ruby on Rails (but also Javascript) software agencies to gain new Spree clients, Spree project experience, and marketing exposure. It’s an opportunity for E-Commerce businesses to work with reliable and proven Spree development partners. As several E-Commerce categories are currently booming, expert E-Commerce developers are in high demand. Spree Partner Network brings benefits to both the clients and dev shops.

Spree in 2020

Spree is an open-source ecommerce platform for Rails 6 with a modern UX, optional PWA frontend, REST API, GraphQL (under construction), several official extensions, and 3rd party integrations. Over 1 million downloads and counting! 

For Ruby on Rails and JavaScript developers the Spree ecosystem is a set of building blocks allowing them to quickly respond to market demand:

  • Spree 4.1 now has a brand new, blazing-fast UX reducing time to market to weeks or even days
  • Spree backend is using APIs to talk to multiple frontend apps…
  • …built with any tech-stack you like!
  • Spree is also an excellent headless engine for several use cases and omnichannel projects…
  • …like selling through a custom JS storefront, a WordPress page, a mobile app.
