What is Headless Commerce?

head - less com - merce
noun
Is one where the front-end and the back-end of an eCommerce application are decoupled from each other. This type of architecture offers brands more flexibility for their eCommerce operations and it also gives them more control over the customer experience. The use of APIs is the main characteristic of a headless set-up, and one of the key outcomes of headless is that both the front-end and the back-end can be updated or edited without impacting each other. This comes, in turn, with more development efforts and resources dedicated to the eCommerce operation.
