BigCommerce has become a key player in headless commerce, aware that this model allows brands to have more flexibility while offering the possibility to work with the market’s best-of-breed solutions, adapted to each and every use case.
Our partnership with BigCommerce is a natural step. We are working on the development of a connector to allow your BigCommerce sites to benefit from the power of Front-Commerce!

Thus, stress tests should help to understand:
