Headless Commerce has been gaining popularity over the course of the past 5 years or so, but when some people hear the term "headless" it still gets some puzzled reactions.
The concept of "headless" refers to the decoupling of the front-end of an application, or the user interface that the end-user interacts with, and the back-end, or the engine of the application that processes all the business logic. In the commerce space, when organizations embrace a Headless Commerce approach, it means they're leveraging a back-end commerce engine that doesn't come with a front-end UI, and instead they build their own front-end that consumers use to purchase goods and services from that brand or retailers. But determining if headless is right for your business can be a daunting decision.
