What is headless commerce?
Headless commerce is an eCommerce approach that separates the frontend presentation layer from the backend functionality. In more simple language, this means that the customer-facing website will be decoupled from the Shopify original platform's underlying technology.
By decoupling Shopify as we know it, you will feel all the benefits that come from greater flexibility and scalability in designing and delivering customer experiences across all channels and devices.
With a headless Shopify solution, your businesses will deliver personalized and engaging shopping experiences that cater to the needs and preferences of your specific audience.
So, you’re wishing for a flexible BUT innovative approach to eCommerce that will empower your businesses? Oh, don’t worry, we got you covered!
Headless commerce architecture
Headless commerce architecture can be described as a custom approach to eCommerce stores that are built from the custom frontend presentation layer and backend platform.
Headless architecture gets you more control over the customer experience because you're not fully dependent on the eCommerce platform's underlying technology.
If we take headless Shopify as an example, any business can use any frontend technology to deliver a unique and personalized shopping experience to their cherry-picked audience.
This approach will provide your business with flexibility and scalability in designing and delivering customer experiences across different channels and devices. And, most importantly, headless commerce enables businesses to make quick and agile changes to their eCommerce sites without disrupting the backend systems that lean mostly on platform features we love and want to keep.

When should you consider turning your Shopify store into headless?
Turning your existing Shopify store into a headless architecture can provide many benefits, but it may not be the right choice for every business. Here are some factors to consider when deciding if a headless architecture is right for your Shopify store:
Need for Customization: If you need a highly customized user interface, a headless architecture can provide greater flexibility to design and build a unique shopping experience for your customers.

Scalability: If you expect your business to grow rapidly, a headless architecture can provide greater scalability and agility to handle increased traffic and new features or products.
Development Resources: If you have the development resources and expertise to build and maintain a headless architecture - go headless! You will surely benefit from greater control over the frontend and the ability to optimize performance and speed.
Which business usually chooses headless Shopify as an eCommerce solution?
- Enterprise-level Businesses: Large enterprises with complex ecommerce needs, such as multi-brand or multi-store operations, may find headless Shopify particularly valuable in providing greater flexibility, customization, and scalability.

What steps can I expect from hiring Codersy to create me a headless Shopify store?
Hiring Codersy to create a headless store can be a complex process (for us), but generally, you can relax (the goal, right?) and expect the following steps:
- Discovery and Planning: we will work with you to understand your business needs, goals, and requirements for the Shopify store headless solution. This may involve conducting a discovery phase to identify key pain points, desired features, and target audiences.
- Architecture Design: once we get a good understanding of your needs, we will design the headless storefront architecture for your Shopify store, including the Shopify backend infrastructure and the frontend experience. Custom storefront building may include selecting the appropriate technology stack, choosing Shopify themes, designing the API architecture, and mapping the customer journey.
- Development: we will begin developing the headless Shopify architecture with customizing the frontend experience, integrating third-party systems, and building out the backend infrastructure. This may involve writing custom code, configuring APIs, and testing the system to ensure it meets your business requirements.
- Quality Assurance: Before launching the headless Shopify store, we will conduct extensive testing to ensure the site is functioning correctly and providing the desired user experience. This may involve conducting user testing, reviewing analytics data, and performing quality assurance testing to identify and resolve any issues.
- Launch and Maintenance: Once the headless version of your Shopify store is ready, we will launch the site and provide ongoing maintenance and support to ensure it continues to meet your business needs. This may involve providing regular updates, conducting security audits, and performing maintenance tasks to keep the site running smoothly.
Ok, let’s just get real for the moment and talk about the
Cons of hiring Codersy for Shopify Headless eCommerce Website Development
- Cost: Hiring Codersy for a headless eCommerce Shop Development can be expensive, especially for complex projects where we’ll be expected to go above and beyond if the niche you’re in is problematic.
Agencies, as so do we, typically charge hourly rates for longer projects, and sometimes, small projects can have fixed prices. But, sometimes, even that may not fit within your budget. This is why we schedule consultations first, check what you want and what’s your budget and we create a solution for you that fits your budget and expectations as well!
- Communication: Working with Codersy requires effective communication because we want to make sure that your vision is executed correctly. However, if communication is not clear, there may be misunderstandings that result in delays or mistakes and then we’re all losing.
- Lack of control: When you Codersy, you are trusting us with the development of your Shopify store. If you decide NOT to work with us along the way, you may have less control over the final product, including design decisions, functionality, and other elements. Sometimes, people just don’t want to be a part of and we get it, but, there are some potential consequences behind that too.
- Dependence: When you work with Codersy, you may become dependent on our charming team of developers who will be your ongoing support and favorite team for all Shopify updates. This can create special bonds that may be difficult to break. We’re warning you!

But that’s not us, so you don’t have to worry. We will always be transparent about our projects and will keep our track record of success open to the public.
