🌍 Headless is the new standard
Headless commerce is about mastering every aspect of your ecommerce website by employing multiple specialized external services. Rather than developing the stores in-house, with high costs of maintenance and slow updating, ecommerce managers are now moving to standardized platforms that give them the freedom to plug-in the best independent services for any of their needs, such as inventory management, data analysis or customer support.
To improve the checkout experience, essential to reduce cart abandonment, Instant Checkout has developed a number of simple plugins enabling 1-Click payments for the major ecommerce platforms, and open API for the websites that haven't gone "headless" yet.
