BMEcat stands for “Buyer’s Guide to the Management of Catalogue Exchange” and is an internationally recognized standard format for exchanging product catalogs between companies. It was developed by the Federal Association of Materials Management, Purchasing, and Logistics (BME) and is now an important standard in electronic procurement.
BMEcat allows companies to capture and exchange their product data in a standardized, structured format. In addition to product descriptions, information such as prices, delivery times, order quantities, and availability is also captured. By using BMEcat, companies can optimize their procurement and sales processes, as they are able to process catalogs automatically and update data quickly and easily.
BMEcat is used in various industries, including electrical engineering, mechanical and plant engineering, medical technology, construction, and textiles.
Shopware and BMEcat

If you want to import your product information into Shopware, you can use BMEcat files to import your product data from another system into Shopware. We offer a ready-made BMEcat import plugin for Shopware, which you can install in your Shopware shop.
The data exchange between Shopware and a Business-to-Merchant (B2B) e-commerce shopping cart solution depends on the specific platform you are using. However, there are generally three ways in which data exchange can take place:
- API integration: Many B2B platforms offer Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that allow data to be exchanged in real-time between systems. You can set up an API integration between Shopware and the B2B platform to automate data exchange.
- File import/export: Another approach is to exchange files between systems. You can use a file import/export interface to import and export data from Shopware to the B2B platform and vice versa.
- Middleware: Another option is to use middleware between Shopware and the B2B platform, which acts as a bridge between the systems. The middleware can synchronize data in real-time or through file import/export between the systems.
The Shopware BMEcat plugin we offer enables exchange via file import and export.
