Aureate Labs believes in bringing flexibility and customizations with a degree of choice to build frontend experience. With Vue Store India Meetup, the real picture on how customer expectations need to be highlighted by upgrading the eCommerce store with headless commerce i.e. decoupling the frontend and backend, and how VSF as a frontend framework does its job with APIs.
Headless Commerce is changing the perception of the industry both from a business and development angle. The adopters are among the big enterprises and large development teams who are offering customizations with customer experience.
Leveraging the understanding of frontend technologies, developers need to figure out how to use Headless efficiently with eCommerce backend systems as the advancement of the web technologies.
