Gambio is a German shop system that offers a complete solution for online retailers with extensive functions and tools. It offers simple handling for small and medium-sized companies that want to design their own e-commerce presence.
Gambio was founded in 2005 and is used by more than 25,000 e-commerce merchants, primarily in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Gambio offers two different systems: Gambio Cloud and the self-hosted version.
The Gambio plugin from Coinsnap is provided free of charge for the self-hosted version. The Gambio Cloud version is not yet supported.
With the self-hosted store software Gambio, store operators opt for a flexible and user-friendly application. Neither programming skills nor in-depth knowledge of search engine optimisation are required. Gambio also offers users a customised layout for their shop and an easy-to-use user interface.
Coinsnap has developed a free module so that Bitcoin and Lightning payments can also be conveniently processed via the Gambio shop software. This payment plugin is directly adapted to Gambio and enables the convenient processing of Bitcoin payments. The Gambio payment plugin from Coinsnap can be downloaded and installed free of charge.
