No more one-platform dependence – move towards a genuine omnichannel now!
Headless eCommerce development is all about the full separation of Frontend from Backend by using modern technologies, such as ReactJS, GraphQL, GatsbyJS, and Next.JS.

As a result, the Frontend stops being dependent on one platform for content generation and can use various platforms in one place. It enables faster operation and the creation of a unique user experience that takes into account your business needs.

After the data exchange starts to work through API as GraphQL, your data transfers and outputs will become more adjustable to your business needs on any channel, be it a website, application, or IoT device. You will be able to use channels such as Voice Search, VR, AR, XR and evolve with the times.

Ecommerce platforms

For catalog and user management, you can deploy any of the most popular eCommerce platforms

You can use WordPress or Contentful for content management together with additional platforms for recommendations or search.

In a nutshell, Headless eCommerce is all about building reliable, fast and scalable websites. No matter how many other platforms your business will include, your site will remain stable and effective. Your Frontend will gain flexible assets and necessary user experience retaining excellent performance.

Performance, Load Resistance, and Security

Several up-to-date technologies can help you to maintain an optimal balance and performance of your eCommerce project.

Gatsby.js is a win-win solution for web stores, with a moderate number of pages and an item volume not exceeding 5000. This framework is based on JamStack technology and turns your Frontend into a static site that will load in less than a second. It will be entirely independent of the backend – available on a separate server, such as CDN hosting. It significantly reduces the costs and resources, while at the same time maintaining a high speed, unrivaled by any other solution.

With Gatsby, you build blazing fast websites.

For eCommerce stores with a larger number of pages and items, we use the server-side rendering platform Next.js. Its main advantages include providing your project with superior performance, the efficient optimization of discovery and SEO, lightning-fast delivery, incremental adoption, and infinite scalability.
