How does composable commerce work?
If you think of a classic ecommerce platform, it’s one big package. It’s an all-in-one solution. Composable commerce takes this architecture and breaks it into modular, independent components.
These components, often called “microservices,” manage specific functions or features of your online store, like the shopping cart, payment processing, inventory management, and more. Each microservice operates independently and communicates with other services via APIs (application programming interfaces).
You can mix and match these microservices to create a tailored ecommerce ecosystem that fits your needs. The flexibility lets you choose the best solution for every aspect of your online store, rather than being tied to a single all-in-one platform. You might opt for a product catalog service from one provider, a frontend from another, and a personalized recommendation engine from a third vendor.
