Features and benefits.
Beautiful Content Management
Own your merchandizing experience for your customers by leveraging best-in-class headless CMSs such as Prismic or Contentful. Content changes can be staged and previewed prior to deployment to your live storefront.
Search from A to Z
Integration into Algolia, an industry leading search engine, allows your customers to discover your full product catalog – from A to Z.
Multi-region, multi-currency, multi-warehouse
Expand your storefront globally and stop worrying about running multiple instances on your ecommerce platform. We help extend the lifecycle of your ecommerce platform by working around these limitations.
Blazingly fast speed and performance
Speed is everything for your customers and can have a direct impact on your conversion rate and revenue. Our front-end is blazing fast and can extend the shelf life of your existing Shopify or BigCommerce storefront.
Statically built, dynamically loaded
We use SWR (Stale While Revalidate) hooks to asynchronously request real-time data about your storefront. Once loaded for your customer, we cache the data so that it's accessible within milliseconds, and instantly updated when new data becomes available.
Lazy, in the best way
Images are fully optimized to be served statically and with minimum bandwidth requirements. Image assets are also loaded when needed, right before they scroll into view, so that initial pages are extremely fast to load.
Geographically distributed CDN
All builds are statically generated, which allow us to geographically distribute your storefront frontend and speed up the delivery of your brand's experience to your end customer.
Peace of mind
All requests are funnelled through HTTPS and SSL offering fully secure and encrypted communication between your technology services ecosystem and your customers. For requests with private information, logic, or validation (ex: a custom discount calculation on cart), we use a private and encrypted REST API for server-to-server communication.
