What is headless commerce?
Headless commerce is a cutting-edge architecture that has been gaining traction in recent years. Headless commerce refers to the decoupling of the front-end and back-end of an e-commerce platform. Unlike traditional monolithic architectures, where the front-end and back-end are tightly integrated, headless commerce allows businesses to separate the presentation layer (front-end) from the commerce logic and data (back-end).
In a headless commerce setup, the back-end serves as the engine that manages inventory, orders, and other core e-commerce functionalities, while the front-end acts as the user interface responsible for displaying the products, content, and user interactions. The communication between these two components is facilitated through APIs (Application Programming Interfaces).
