What is Headless Marketplace Development?

Headless means separating the frontend and the backend.  Building a multi-vendor marketplace is quite a complex process.

Unlike regular E-Commerce store development, marketplaces are built for a higher number of product SKUs also entities like separate vendor management.

Entities like vendor product listings, vendor storefronts, vendor customers, vendor orders & transactions and many other data set are connected via robust API, and building the frontend using JavaScript frameworks (React, Vue, Next.js etc) and API.


Performance and Scalability

Headless development is quite scalable and ultra-fast.  Technologies like server-side rendering and code split give a major boost in performance to the marketplace platform.
Manage SEO Effectively

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Because of the fast rendering (Google Core Web Vitals) and better User Experience, it gives extra benefit in terms of SEO. Also reduces the bounce rate which is highly critical for Multi-Vendor Marketplace.

Headless architecture-based marketplaces are also suitable for integrating multiple services example connecting product data with PIM solutions like Akeneo, Pimcore.

Easy to Upgrade (No Downtime)

It is important to update the framework and platform regularly but the problem is downtime. The headless approach also solves the same. In this way, Vendors and Customers need not worry about marketplace site downtime.

API-first Approach

The biggest benefit of a headless-based multi-vendor solution is to use the same API on multiple platforms example mobile apps.
Vendors can connect the API to their inventory and order management software.

Headless Marketplace Development Life Cycle


Information Gathering & Analyzing Data


Planning & Wireframing


Prototyping and Designing Headless Marketplace


Sync APIs with Headless Marketplace


Headless Marketplace Implementation


Headless Marketplace Testing and Integration


We endeavored to re-platform our existing site and Webkul has been playing an integral part as far as transforming our basic Magneto instance into an online marketplace.
We’ve purchased well over a dozen services and worked with them on a number of customizations ranging from basic plugin modification to IT and dev ops setup, to highly complex and multi-phased custom plugin creation.
The process is sometimes, touch and go and there are bugs/processes to be fleshed out here and there as you would expect, but overall we’re very happy with the service we’ve been getting and the quality of work.
