Frequently Asked Questions

A software-as-a-service (SaaS) e-commerce platform is e-commerce software delivered as a cloud-based system that can be accessed through all types of Web browsers, such as SAP Upscale Commerce.

An e-commerce platform is software that enables the commercial process of buying and selling over the Internet, such as SAP Commerce Cloud.

A digital commerce platform enables you to sell products, solutions, and services digitally – either through a typical online store or other digitally connected devices, such as mobile phones, wearables, connected cars, and IoT devices. It also allows you to include your physical stores in your digital commerce strategy, especially for omnichannel fulfillment scenarios, such as “buy online pick up in store” or “buy online return in store.”

A headless commerce platform decouples the front end or the storefront (also known as the “head”) from all the back-end logic and processes of the platform. This results in more flexibility and agility, as you can work on updating your storefront without touching any of the core services running in the back. You can also get a more modular approach to commerce, as core commerce capabilities are available as microservices and can be used independently of each other through API calls, even in scenarios where you don’t have a typical customer-facing storefront but want to feed different sales channels (“headless”).
