Understanding Headless Commerce

A new customer-facing E-commerce experience for businesses to sell anywhere.

Overview

Introducing Headless Commerce. A new era for your business' e-commerce strategy.

Think of your online store as the coupling of the visually pleasing interface shoppers interact with (Front-End) and the unseen code and background operations that power your site to facilitate sales (Back-End). Traditional Commerce exists when Front-End and Back-End remain tethered. On the flip side, Headless Commerce is the separation or 'decoupling' of these two systems, to allow for each one to fully optimise their core functions, via a series of APIs. This essentially means no more interference between either system when one of the two is updated, resulting in a multitude of benefits for businesses, developers and customers alike.

This 'Headless Architecture' to Commerce isn't simply another emerging E-commerce trend. It's a revolutionary opportunity for changing the way selling and buying is performed online. This shift in communication between Front-End and Back-End databases not only brings incredible flexibility in terms of design and development, but also opens new doors for businesses to develop their marketing and sales strategies in unison.

Not to mention how Headless Commerce allows businesses to meet their customers at any discovery point and deliver a richer online shopping experience, thanks to new products like seamless checkout, which providers like Roqqett are delivering. Overall, by adopting Headless Commerce, brands will vastly improve customer satisfaction rates as well as contribute to the transformation of online purchasing behaviours.


Headless commerce will enable e-commerce sellers to sell anywhere on the web, mobile or social channels. This will drive audience engagement, building your brand and ultimately generate new sources of revenue growth. This is a super exciting space to be working in.

Consumer benefits

From your consumers’ point of view, Headless Commerce will certainly evolve the traditional act of shopping by introducing more touchpoints in how online purchasing is fulfilled. Nevertheless, it is important to point out how the overall traditional shopping experience is not replaced but rather upgraded via the numerous benefits that Headless Commerce provides.

01

Fast

Headless technology means improved site speed, due to faster page load times, especially on mobile, which is where consumers predominately navigate. As a result of this faster experience, shoppers can complete purchases in a more instant and seamless manner, without even having to be on the seller's online store. That is the power of Headless Commerce. Roqqett is able to facilitate this vision with its Fast Checkout offerings.

02

Unified

With Headless Commerce, you can create a more unified shopping journey, as the decoupling of systems creates a consistent customer experience across different front-ends. Roqqett is introducing the concept of a unified checkout across multiple websites and brands that make it more convenient and faster for the consumer to complete purchases. This ultimately will drive greater conversion and revenue while helping reinforce your brand as being consumer focused.

03

Desirable

Headless Commerce, ultimately creates a more desirable shopping experience for consumers thanks to the interactive storefronts, which can be easily personalised. This allows for a more satisfying experience. Ultimately, shoppers will have the ability to purchase products directly from anyone and anywhere (ie. review pages, newsletters, blog posts, articles, and social media platforms), without being tied to the brand's e-commerce website.
