At KLEKT we chose Vendure after many painstaking hours of competitive research. Being a marketplace we didn't feel like there was anything out there that really fit the bill out of the box, but with an API-first platform and the ability to create custom plugins we were able to extend Vendure to meet our needs. In comparison to other platforms Vendure is much lighter, fully utilises modern technologies and doesn't need 25 dev ops engineers to make it scale. So for us it seemed the right fit and we haven't looked back.

We were trying to find a solution that was feature-complete but flexibile. Flexibility was a necessity because we wanted to maintain the legacy system’s interface points with other teams. After we set up a demo system on IBM’s internal hybrid cloud platform, we were convinced that, out-of-the-box, it would provide 90% of the ecommerce functionality our stores required, and that we would be able to build out the other 10% ourselves.

Thanks to the modular nature of Vendure I was able to create my own payment and delivery provider integrations, dynamic product pricing, order validators and processes that fit to our very specific business needs.

After almost one year working with Vendure, we can say it was a right choice for us. Its headless approach has allowed us to cherry-pick storefront technologies to suit our skills and requirements. Its tech stack ensures reliability and top-level performance, and the ability to use Typescript across the whole stack is very important to us.


I was looking for an e-commerce platform that supports multi-channel, to enable the multi-client setup of the platform. Vendure is the only platform meeting the requirements of Node.js, GraphQL and multi-channel. The only code I had to write was the payment integration, which was very easy with the plugin system.
