Headless WooCommerce = Faster Stores, Happier Customers
Blaze Commerce gives you everything you need to take WooCommerce headless in days, not months.
Headless aka decoupled, serverless, composable or codeless, is the future of ecommerce.
Blaze Commerce is a complete headless platform. Other solutions give you ‘most’ of what you need for headless development, but Blaze Commerce is the only headless ecommerce platform for WooCommerce that includes not only the core features but everything needed for a fully functioning headless setup, making it the ideal choice for developers and store owners.
WooCommerce is the most popular shopping cart solution, built on the open-source WordPress content management application. It has a great user interface, is supported by thousands of developers and plugins, and handles most payment gateways. Despite being a popular option for businesses, it suffers from performance issues.
Blaze Commerce solves the performance issues with traditional WordPress and WooCommerce with a modern stack headless architecture to deliver dramatically faster load times and competitor-crushing customer experiences, saving hundreds of hours of development time, making it the ONLY all-in-one headless commerce platform for WooCommerce.
Used by some of the world’s largest companies, Next.js enables you to create full-stack web applications and is the perfect headless architecture for ecommerce sites because it offers features such as server-side rendering, automatic code splitting, and optimized performance out of the box, which improves SEO and page load speed.
Tailwind CSS is a utility-first CSS framework that provides a set of pre-defined CSS classes that can be used to style HTML elements quickly. It is great for building ecommerce sites because it delivers lightweight, visually consistent designs and includes pre-defined classes for creating common ecommerce-related UI elements.
A typical REST API would require round-trip requests to many endpoints. GraphQL is a query language for APIs that allows clients to request only the needed data. This results in less over-fetching of data from WordPress and WooCommerce, more efficient use of network resources and a more flexible approach to data requests.
Typesense is a powerful, open-source search engine that lets you quickly provide lightning-fast autocomplete and search results from your store’s data. It helps shoppers find the products they want faster, boosting conversion rates and increasing sales
Ecommerce User Experience (UX)
Backed by Research
Blaze Commerce leverages Baymard’s 110,000+ hours of comprehensive e-commerce UX research distilled into 650+ design guidelines and 195,000+ UX performance scores and insights that are used by most of the world’s leading e-commerce sites to create the perfect shopping experience.
User experience is important to ecommerce because it directly impacts customer satisfaction and conversion rates. A well-designed and easy-to-use website can increase trust, encourage exploration and make it easy for customers to find and purchase the products they want, leading to increased sales and customer loyalty.
Poor UX negatively impacts conversion rates because it makes it difficult for customers to find and purchase the products they want, causing confusion, frustration and mistrust in the website and brand. Additionally, it can cause customers to leave the website quickly, resulting in high bounce rates and lost sales opportunities.
A well-designed and easy-to-use online store will increase customer satisfaction, trust, and loyalty, leading to increased engagement and customer retention. As a progressive web application, Blaze Commerce makes this an integral part of every headless WooCommerce store rather than a ‘premium’ or ‘plus’ feature.
The Blaze Commerce web-based admin panel gives you complete control over your headless ecommerce store’s typography, colors, layout and config to reflect your brand and audience. Changes to the admin interface are ‘pushed’ to your headless store within moments of them being made, making for a great developer experience.
Support for Woo and your favourite apps
Deep support for WooCommerce is core to Blaze Commerce – including many of the ‘standard’ plugins that are common to most Woo stores, including Google Tag Manager (GTM), Advanced Custom Fields (ACF), web forms, redirects and a growing list of additional plugins.
Instant search and filtering
Getting a customer to your products as quickly and intuitively as possible is essential to any online store. The Blaze Commerce instant search and filtering features take care of this for you, giving your customer a user-friendly product discovery experience.
SEO is fundamental to most online stores because it helps them rank higher in search engine results and drive more organic traffic to their website. Blaze Commerce supports popular WordPress SEO plugins, including SEO Yoast, All in One SEO, Rank Math SEO, and XML Sitemaps to maintain your SEO rankings.
Automatic HTTPS and CDN
The benefits of HTTPS coupled with global CDN are well known, and Blaze Commerce automatically provides both. HTTPS is used for secure communication between your customers and the server, while the CDN helps deliver static resources quickly to customers worldwide. Combining these two technologies ensures a lightning-fast experience for your customers regardless of location or connection speed.
Blaze Commerce auto-generates static pages and caches them for quick delivery, ensuring your customers get the best possible performance. Blaze Commerce’s incremental static generation allows for product pages to be auto-regenerated only when the content has changed, resulting in fewer requests and a faster response time.
Automatic image optimisation and sizing built in. This feature helps to ensure that images are correctly sized and optimised for web use ensuring instant page loads for visitors to your WooCommerce store.
