What is Composable Commerce?

Composable Commerce is an approach to e-commerce that make it possible to customize a e-commerce solution by combining various pre-built, specialized components rather than using a single monolithic e-commerce platform. This approach allows businesses to create a more flexible and adaptable e-commerce store that can better meet specific needs.

The key here is that you’re not restricted to the features and capabilities of a single platform. Instead, you’re “composing” your e-commerce solution from the best components available. This flexibility enables you to adapt to changing business needs and take advantage of the latest innovations in the e-commerce industry.

Cloud-Native: It is a cloud-native commerce which is a software that is designed for cloud-native applications and comes with advantages. By using cloud-native commerce, it becomes easier to deal with scalable data storage, digital applications for e-commerce but also hosting.
