InsiteCommerce can run in a headless manner.

InsiteCommerce APIs are versioned in the URI to ensure that any custom UI/UX is supported when updates are made. All APIs have access restrictions by user and associated roles to ensure they are secure. Plus, they utilize e-tag caching to improve performance. The APIs will always reflect the various business rules and logic that are configured for the InsiteCommerce instance and each site built on that instance. Never worry about security, compatibility or updates that break your site again.
