We build headless commerce

From design stage to production-ready code, we help brands offer the best online shopping experience.

Headless commerce projects

What is headless commerce?

A headless commerce architecture consists on separating the storefront (what users interact with) from the store management tool (e.g. Shopify or Commerce Layer), and from the content management system (e.g. Sanity).

This gives flexibility to create a unique design, integrate the storefront with any 3rd party tool or API, to create custom features like store locators, and reach top page speeds to improve conversion rates.

The traditional commerce setup generates the UI, which makes the benefits listed above difficult to reach, if not impossible.

Also, by decoupling the storefront from the backend systems, we are able to chose the best tools for each purpose. We can setup the inventory and SKUs (Stock Keeping Unit) on Shopify or Commerce Layer, and offer you the ability to handle orders, manage subscriptions, shipments, customers, returns, stock transfers, prices, promotions, gift cards, and more.

If you're starting from scratch, we will first establish your brand guidelines, if you have none. We will then proceed with designing the user interface and experience.

If you already have a design in place and only need support with commerce development, we will manage the implementation, whilst ensuring top page speeds, and accessibility conformity, and also following SEO best practices.

We can also help if your store already exists and you're thinking of an ecommerce design or development audit, or perhaps replatforming.

Moreover, Seif and Omar were extremely friendly and personable people.I would highly recommend Tinloof for any web development projects.
