Headless commerce
HED-liss COM-urse

A type of e-commerce architecture that refers to the decoupling of the frontend — or consumer-facing — content of a store from the backend commerce capabilities. Separating the frontend — or “head” — from the commerce engine — or “body” — gives brands or merchants the freedom to use different technology for each end and customize each to enhance the shopping experience.
