Headless Commerce

Get full control across all customer touchpoints.

Headless commerce is a modern alternative to the many limitations of traditional commerce. Separating frontend design from backend infrastructure lets you create seamless customer journeys that work on any device. Such a decoupled approach lets you manage content information without affecting the ecommerce functionality. At the same time, it accelerates site performance and boosts conversions. Commerce Layer is headless by design, that’s why it’s the perfect solution to help your business stay innovative and delight customers with a unique shopping experience.

Why Commerce Layer

Radically different from the ground up.

Traditional ecommerce platforms weren’t built for the way commerce runs today. They rely on monolithic architectures that were designed for desktop, and they lack the underlying flexibility to evolve with new modes of shopping, and scale up as a business grows. These “starter frameworks” are an inconvenience for developers, project managers, and marketing departments that find it difficult to create compelling experiences for consumers. Commerce Layer is different. Unlike the traditional platforms, it doesn't lock your creativity into any rigid schema and lets you build unique, blazing-fast ecommerce websites and sales channels to serve customers at any touchpoint. All without worrying about servers, security, and all the boring stuff that has kept you away too long from building great projects.
