How does headless eCommerce work?
The easy way
In the simplest and not really modern way, the software vendor has put an API layer on top of the existing eCommerce monolithic architecture.
This brings already benefits and this is indeed a de-coupling of front-end and back-end. But hand on heart, that is only half the story.
