As an open source platform under active development, Shuup gladly welcomes all contributions and feedback. As soon as you learn Shuup basics, you can contribute in several ways:

Reporting an issue

Before submitting an issue, please ensure you’re using the latest version of Shuup and search the forums and issue tracker to see if the issue has already been reported.

If you’re certain you’ve found an issue, we encourage you to report it by clicking the “Provide feedback” trigger button to the right of the screen. Please provide detailed steps to recreate the bug. The more details provided, the better!

Submit a Pull Request

We love receiving pull requests from the community and will do our best to process them quickly. Before you start development, ensure a related issue doesn’t exist. If you plan on making a significant code/design change, please document it in our issue tracker. If you’d like to work on an issue on our backlog, please ping us on gitter.


  • Fork our Github repository and create your branch from master.
  • Create your patch and add appropriate test cases.
  • Add a changelog entry
  • Write down the issue number (if working on a ticket) in the commit and PR description

Once your PR is submitted, our CI environment will ensure the code follows our guidelines and tests pass. Members of our core team will then review the changes and provide feedback, if required.
