The Newest Technology Architecture in Town

What is Headless Commerce?

Simply put, headless commerce is the separation of the front-end and back-end of an ecommerce application. But what does this mean, and how does transitioning to this new technology architecture benefit your business?

Headless commerce is the technology architecture on which your ecommerce store is built, making it possible for your customer-facing ecommerce storefront (the front-end) to be handled separately from the commerce functions and processes that power your store (the back-end). This decoupled architecture is made possible through APIs (Application Program Interfaces), enabling developers to deliver customer experiences to any screen or customer-experience platform they desire. The innovation of headless commerce architecture lies in the flexibility that it offers to developers, leading to faster and easier deployments of new, rich, and unified customer experiences.
