Stay ahead with a Headless eCommerce Platform

Your visitors are unique, so should your customer experience be. This is only possible with a headless eCommerce platform.

Integrate your enterprise legacy and backend systems as well as third-party services to a modern, flexible and personalizable frontend. The Emporix headless ecommerce architecture ensures you can easily stay flexible and scale with the changing behavior of your enterprise customers.


What is a Headless eCommerce Platform?

A Headless eCommerce Platform describes an eCommerce software that has a separation of front-end and back-end.

This software architecture enables maximum freedom for front-end customer experiences without affecting your back-end infrastructure.

The communication between front-end and back-end happens through standardized APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). These APIs enable also easy integration of other applications like legacy systems or third-party services.

How does a Headless eCommerce Platform 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.

Multi-tenant SaaS


API first

Business Logic APIs

At the same time, you will benefit from automatic and frequent updates for the standard software of the headless eCommerce platform.

A Composable eCommerce Platform is not only Headless, it is also: 


A true cloud native architecture means a lot more than just hosting your applications in the cloud. It means speed and agility.

API First

Microservice architecture, is an architectural style that enables a level of agility and flexibility that wasn’t previously possible.
