Caching information

The plentymarkets system employs caching to increase performance. When developing plugins, you should be aware of how different functionality is impacted by caching.

There are three components where information is cached:

  • Live online store
  • Plugin set preview
  • plentymarkets back end
Component Explanation
Live online store Always cached.
Plugin set preview Always cached.
plentymarkets back end Cached by default. Caching can be disabled.

When caching is enabled, content only updates every 5 minutes.


Only disable caching in the back end if you develop a plugin that adds functionality to the back end, such as a new menu. Disabling the cache otherwise has adverse effects on the loading times of your system, for example when opening the Item menu.

Disabling back end caching

To disable caching in the plentymarkets back end, carry out the following steps:

  1. Go to Setup » Settings » Developer.
  2. In the Run backend without PHP-OPcache section, switch on the toggle.
    • → The cache is disabled.

A red label in the bottom left corner indicates that the cache is disabled. To enable caching again, switch off the toggle or hover over the label and click on Close.
