Which Platforms are Best Suited for Headless Commerce?

Smart e-commerce businesses that seek to harness technology for growth are turning to headless commerce. For those new to the concept, headless commerce is a web architecture that decouples the front-end and backend platforms of your e-commerce website. The approach enables e-commerce businesses to develop and plug in different user interfaces for different devices. A website built with headless commerce loads faster even when the internet is sketchy or when the mobile device has no access to the internet. Headless commerce makes the customer experience seamless and has a direct impact on sales conversion.

Which platforms support headless commerce?

Several e-commerce platforms support headless commerce such as Adobe Commerce (formerly Magento), Shopify Plus, BigCommerce, Salesforce Commerce Cloud, and a host of smaller options. The foremost advantage of headless commerce is that it is device sensitive and based on a modular architecture. Headless allows e-commerce sites to add features to serve customers better, adopt modules based on their needs and, automate back-end business processes to the maximum.

Go headless with Magento 2

While Magento is the most widely used e-commerce front-end, e-commerce businesses leverage it mainly for the desktop experience. With headless commerce, users can do away with the problems of Magentos’ monolithic architecture (where the front-end and the backend are tightly integrated via HTML). For users of Magento 2.3 and above, headless created in GrapQL API lets users create a head that corresponds to a specific device (for instance, a desktop or mobile). These separate heads or storefronts immediately improve the customer’s shopping experience.

Magento offers e-commerce businesses an opportunity to harness progressive web applications with ready-to-use PWA Studio.

Let your customers shop more with headless Shopify Plus

Shopify Plus lets users access a headless storefront with Hydrogen, the React-based framework from Shopify. It also enables users to scale their storefront for free with Oxygen, their global hosting solution.

Grow your e-commerce business with headless BigCommerce

BigCommerce offers advanced headless integration with frontend frameworks, CMS, and digital experience platforms. They promise users an opportunity to build complex frontend requirements, create multi-storefronts, manage these storefronts from a single dashboard, and access the web faster.
