Headless E-Commerce is a shift from conventional websites that have a single customer facing front-end, along with a backend application to manage the site. With current E-Commerce stores running from a wide range of platforms such as desktop, mobile, and App formats, it becomes increasingly difficult to have a single platform to manage the storefronts. Headless E-Commerce provides a solution to decouple both the front and backend portions of the website and uses APIs to connect the different front-end views from a unified backend, or vice-versa. Headless E-Commerce in Magento/Adobe Commerce is offered through Progressive Web Applications, along with GraphQL, and ReactJS.
Magento PWA studio is a perfect option to start building a Headless E-Commerce site for your business. The built-in features of the platform offer easy development and administration of the site, with a wide range of tools that can be used for rapidly developing PWA applications.
Along with the native theme that is offered in PWA Studio, you can also use third-party PWA themes to build your headless store in Magento.
For users looking to create their own custom theme from the Magento PWA Studio, the development can be done from the scratch using any progressive framework such as React.js, Angular.js or Vue.js.
PWA Studio includes a pre-configured App builder that can be enhanced for your specific requirements.
The following factors are best practices for designing a PWA storefront using Magento and are sure to create an enriching user experience that gives the best solution for effective customer engagement.
