What is a Headless Commerce platform?

Simply put, it means more freedom and flexibility. We will tell you what it’s all about.

No built-in front-end

A headless commerce platform has no built-in CMS (Content Management System). Instead, you can choose the CMS that best suits your business.

In this way, you can combine the market’s most powerful commerce engine with the CMS you already have or a CMS that supports your future needs.

Storm Commerce’s commerce platform is built to be seamlessly integrated with the various CMS’s available on the market.

Separated business strategy & presentation

A headless commerce platform keeps track of data structures, underlying commerce functionality and business strategy, so you can focus on improving the customer experience in the front-end solution.

Since changes and updates in front-end do not affect business-critical systems, you can work in an agile way and if required, manage a high rate of change in the user interface.

As new business needs arise, you can easily add new functionality. You can even change the CMS, without affecting the system architecture.

With a headless commerce platform, you are not as restricted as when you choose an all-in-one solution, where functionality and business strategy often are closely linked to front-end.

Flexible APIs & Data Models

An API is an interface that developers can code for. For example, it can be used to retrieve and update information between different systems. A headless commerce platform has modern APIs that allow integration with a wide range of third-party systems or proprietary applications.

Flexible data models and open APIs make Storm Commerce’s commerce platform fit every industry, and you can quickly and easily add different front-end applications, backend systems, services and plug-ins for the best possible commerce experience.
