If you’re tuned into the ecommerce space, you’ve no doubt heard about “going headless”, or building a “headless commerce storefront.” And if you’ve gone as far as exploring headless solutions, you know there’s an incredible amount of info to wade through and to consider when making a storefront pivot. You may have heard that headless commerce means a move from “commerce-led” to a “content-led solution”. Or maybe you’ve heard it represents a lean toward an ‘API-first’ approach.

The great thing about headless commerce is it can get your Shopify store to load incredibly fast, eliminate the compromises when it comes to your brand’s look and feel. You get full frontend control and flexibility which will help you convert more of your website visitors. Amazing brands like Groove Life, Nomad, OneBlade, and so many more, have taken their storefronts headless using the Shogun Frontend platform.

You can increase your conversion rate with a less than 1-second page load and empower your ecommerce team to manage content more efficiently with Shogun Frontend, the next-generation eCommerce Experience Platform (eXP).
