What is an eCommerce Platform?

An eCommerce Platform describes a software system that allows customers to buy goods and services through an interactive online experience in a self-service manner.

The eCommerce platform provides information necessary for customers to make purchasing decisions and uses business rules and data to submit orders for payment with complete price information.

Typical components of an eCommerce platform are product catalogs, pricing information, shopping cart, checkout, support for search and payment as well as customer account management.

The Emporix eCommerce platform is a headless and API first system that separates between frontend and backend. The frontend is the customer facing user interface that can be optimized for different devices. The backend caters for business logic running in the cloud and data storage.

How does an eCommerce Platform work?

The traditional way

Traditionally, eCommerce platforms were built in a monolithic way. Front-end and Back-end were one big software system, which made it not very easy to maintain and update. In later phases, the software vendor has put an API layer on top of the existing monolithic architecture.

This brings some benefits but is not really competitive to a modern eCommerce platform archtitecture.
