For several years now, we’ve heard about “headless” CMS (content management systems). These are basically content management systems (think WordPress) without the frontend code.
Developers are loving headless platforms because it gives them the flexibility to create the website they want without feeling constrained by the platform itself. The platform only takes care of all aspects of keeping the data safe and secure and providing administrative access, while development can take that same data and present it to users in the most sensible and efficient way possible.
A Flexible Ecommerce Platform
One of the challenges of using traditional ecommerce platforms where the front end store and checkout pages are in a single solution is that it’s incredibly difficult to add new functionalities.
Take recurring billing, for instance.
For an online store that is designed to only sell one-time purchases, adding the ability to sell recurring subscriptions will break not only the themes themselves, but the checkout and the backend order management.
Cartfunnel solves all of these issues by creating a customizable shopping cart and checkout page which you can add to any website. Pick and choose the components you need for your online store without having to worry that you’ll outgrow the platform.
Leverage a Powerful API
You want to have a workflow that is different than most online stores. With existing platforms, you’re limited to what you can do based on the way their system is designed.
Cartfunnel’s API systems (and we have four API systems) enables you to create customizable ecommerce experiences.
Our APIs provide an infinite amount of possibilities when it comes to integration:
- Cart API (direct post)
- Cart AJAX/JSON API
- REST API
- Liquid template API (coming soon)
