Online, mobile, apps, multi-brand, social, direct-to-consumer. B2C, B2B - it doesn’t matter. Businesses need to be selling in more places than ever before to keep up with their customers. Any modern eCommerce platform has to include support for multisite and multichannel selling and support. Delivering a consistent eCommerce experience with a single platform is a must.
In order to get it right, marketing teams need to be able to react quickly and launch in new marketplaces with perfect customer experiences. Simply launching another eCommerce platform for each sales channel takes too long and too much money to make work.
Headless commerce is the engine that drives all your sales channels. Connect a single eCommerce platform to all the places you need to sell, and keep all the design and creative unique per channel.
For flexibility, efficiency, and growth, utilizing a headless commerce platform like Slatwall Commerce is the only way for modern eCommerce powered companies to grow.
We’re so serious about headless commerce and it’s benefits that we’ve written an entire headless commerce guide.
It’s all about control and getting what we want! Right?!
The headless commerce concept sounds like it benefits the technology team, but actually, marketing teams are driving innovation in headless commerce platforms. Marketing teams are making big investments in their content management platforms and building out the layout, style, and templates that work on the content side but are restricted on the eCommerce side. With most eCommerce implementations, marketing teams are frustrated by the lack of control and creative design flexibility in traditional design platforms.
Headless commerce removes those restrictions - allowing a traditional website experience to be more tightly integrated with the eCommerce platform in a single commerce experience. No secondary store-only domains, no additional development resources required, and no huge price tag.
