Magento vs Headless Commerce

Shopify Plus and Magento are both great for large businesses. Shopify Plus is user-friendly and hosted, reducing the need for technical maintenance, and ideal for simplifying operations. Magento offers deep customization, suitable for businesses with specific needs and the capability to manage complex systems. If ease of use and less technical management are priorities, Shopify Plus is an excellent choice.

While Magento offers extensive customization for large enterprises with complex needs, Centra shines for fashion and lifestyle brands aiming for global reach. Centra is about multi-market and multi-brand strategies, especially for businesses looking to manage both B2B and D2C channels simultaneously. If your focus is on efficient management across diverse sales channels, Centra could be the better choice.

Crystallize distinguishes itself from Magento by focusing on brands that need to weave rich narratives into their eCommerce strategy. It is particularly adept at handling fast, API-driven interactions and excels in managing multimedia content thanks to its headless architecture and strong product information management system. For businesses that emphasize storytelling and require a platform that supports rapid content updates and dynamic presentation, Crystallize is an excellent alternative to Magento.

Swell Commerce offers a simpler, API-first approach compared to Magento, making it ideal for businesses looking for ease of use and rapid scalability. It allows for quick store launches and smooth scaling, avoiding the complexity and heavy maintenance often associated with Magento. For growing brands seeking to implement modern eCommerce features efficiently, Swell is a compelling choice.

We have developed a fully functional storefront for their US market website, integrating with Stripe and their fulfillment services, centralizing product catalog and order statuses within the Crystallize platform.

The eCommerce store is highly optimized using the latest Next.js features and is hosted on Vercel.


Headless commerce separates the frontend presentation layer of a website from the backend eCommerce functionality. This architecture allows developers to use APIs to send and retrieve data between the two layers. As a result, businesses can use any frontend technology to create a customized user experience while maintaining modern eCommerce capabilities in the backend.

Shopify Plus pricing typically starts at around $2,000 per month, but it can vary depending on specific requirements and sales volumes. For larger enterprises or businesses with higher transaction volumes, the cost might be higher due to increased usage and additional features. It's best to contact Shopify directly for a customized quote based on your business's unique needs.

Migration time varies, ranging from a few months to over a year, depending on complexity and specific needs.

There may be temporary SEO impacts due to changes in site structure, but long-term benefits include improved performance and user experience, which can positively influence SEO.

Yes, Headless Commerce allows for maintaining or enhancing your current design thanks to its frontend flexibility, independent of backend changes.
