When it comes to eCommerce development, having a centralized web infrastructure is crucial. It means having a single platform that enables you to effectively manage every aspect of your online store, including products, orders, and customers. This infrastructure offers support for multiple content mediums, allowing you to engage with your customers through various channels.

Typically, the backend of your web infrastructure can be powered by a WordPress website. On the other hand, the frontend is usually built using popular frameworks such as Next.js, Svelte, VuePress, or even native iOS or Android applications. This flexibility gives you the freedom to choose the best approach for your online store.

Furthermore, by leveraging APIs, you can seamlessly connect your store to external platforms like eBay or Amazon. This integration expands your reach and enables you to tap into larger customer bases.

By adopting this modern architecture, you can ensure efficient performance for your online store. It empowers you to provide a seamless shopping experience for your customers while simplifying the management of your eCommerce operations.
