What you can do with Commerce Layer
The flexibility of Commerce Layer makes it the right tool for any use case.
Building a brand new ecommerce website is one of the most common use cases. Commerce Layer will fit in your current stack — whatever it is — adding global shopping capabilities and orchestrating all your commerce operations.
Let's say you already have a marketing website and now you want to enable ecommerce. All you need to do is connect your Commerce Layer account and use our commerce API to make any of your pages shoppable.
Mobile commerce is increasing and consumers also prefer native app experiences over mobile sites. Commerce Layer can be your backend API, taking your customers' shopping experience to the next level of engagement.
Omnichannel commerce is all about providing seamless experiences whether the customer is shopping online or in store. This can only be achieved through a headless approach, such as the one provided by Commerce Layer.
Will consumers buy products through Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant in the near future? Or perhaps shop by simply touching their Apple Watch. When the next major sales channel emerges, Commerce Layer will keep you up to date and innovating.
Selling through subscriptions is an effective way to increase revenues and build customer loyalty. Commerce Layer's API allows you to store your customer payment instruments and place recurring orders with any frequency.
Commerce Layer can support multi-vendor models in different ways, depending on your business requirements. In all cases, customers can place orders that are automatically split amongst all vendors.
A QR code can trigger an API call just like an HTML button on a product page. Connecting the physical world to Commerce Layer works just the same as building an ecommerce website, a mobile app, or any other buy button.
Commerce Layer is the commerce API for everything brands need.
