Interplay® is the first low-code headless Ecommerce platform.
Interplay Commerce brings all the flexibility and extensive functionality of headless architecture with the speed, integration consistency, and cohesive development environment of low-code.
Ecommerce platforms continue to evolve at a consistently increasing rate. To keep up with rapid innovation, platforms are moving away from monolithic all-in-one applications and toward a ‘headless’ model where the front-end interface is separated from back-end management applications.
In 2020, 61% of retailers said they would leverage headless commerce, and that number will continue to rise--for good reason. Simultaneously, low-code is revolutionizing how applications are developed. Interplay Commerce (IPC) combines Headless and Low-code to provide a revolutionary platform for e-commerce.

Risks and Challenges with Headless Architecture
There are several headless Ecommerce platforms available. Our platform, Interplay, is a headless architecture platform and a low-code drag-and-drop platform; combined, this is a potent combination.
Typical headless systems are abstracted API systems that adapt to retailers' needs. This also means functionality and features must be custom-added and are often missing functionality for advanced commerce operations, leaving the specific implementation to the retailers' development teams. Due to its microservices and API-driven architecture, headless commerce systems are over-engineered. This makes the implementations of headless commerce go over budget and miss timelines, creating uncertainty for retailers. There must be coordinated middleware and out-of-the-box functionality. That’s where low-code comes into play.
Low-code development environments place as many functions or code as possible into discrete modules or containers. Developers can then connect these modules in a drag-and-drop visual environment, which then connects those modules with appropriate data connections.
Low-code development is better:
Interplay is both Headless and Low-Code
Interplay combines the benefits of headless Ecommerce architecture with low-code development to provide a uniquely powerful and fast deployable platform.
Interplay Commerce (IPC) is best:
Low-code development offers many advantages, but the most important is speed. With Interplay, developers can code well, and they can code fast. When low-code is coupled with headless Ecommerce through Interplay, a business can get all of the benefits of headless Ecommerce with no risk.
