There are various ways how community members can contribute to making OXID eShop even better.
Contribute modules and themes
The easiest way of including enhancements and new functionality is through developing modules that extend OXID eShop CE.
If you want to develop your extension under an open source license, maybe in collaboration with others, you may also want to join the GitHub organisation OXID projects. Just drop us a note at if you want your module be forked to this organisation.
