What is Reaction Commerce?
Reaction Commerce is an open source commerce platform that allows anyone to customize, extend, and deploy an online store or marketplace. Our codebase is available for free via GitHub.
We also offer Reaction Platform, our paid platform-as-a-service. Beyond just hosting, our end-to-end system provides deployment, scaling, and support for retailers and brands.
I already have a hosting solution. Can I host a Reaction shop anywhere I want?
Yep! You can host a Reaction shop on any host or virtual machine container that supports Node.js, Meteor, and MongoDB.
What's your pricing model?
Reaction is free. Our code, which is licensed under the GPL v3 license, will always be free and available to the open source community.
Operating a store
How do I sign up for an account, login to my dashboard, and set up my domain?
You'll need to install and run Reaction locally on your computer. For more info, check out our Installation docs.
Where is the admin panel?
The login panel is visible on the right side, once you login as a user with admin credentials. For more on navigating admin, read our Reaction Commerce Store Operator Guide.
What's the admin login?
By default the admin login will be username:
admin@localhost and password
How can I put products into categories / sub-categories?
Categorizing products is a very common scenario, although the way categories are supposed to behave may vary greatly from shop to shop. This is the reason why Reaction Commerce comes up with a very broad and generic concept of clustering products: Tags.

Do you support multiple languages?
We do! We have internationalization support for dozens of languages, including right-to-left formats! We also support currency conversion and localized currency formats.
Have you tested Reaction on large shops with thousands of products?
We're always testing! During our Alpha release, we performed extensive tests, deploying shops at scale, and reviewing several database scaling options. We've done performance testing that mimics high-volume shops, and as a part of our Beta release, we will continue to test, test, test.
