Figma to Headless Development

How headless is different from regular design?

The term headless refers to a business approach and software structure that separates the front-end experiences from the data and functionality on the backend.

  • Front end Development:-In regular designing/traditional method there are pre-developed designsF or themes. So there is a design constraint. It took a lot of time to edit the codes and database. Whereas in headless, designing is done based on a . JSON file. We just only have data, from scratch we need to build the front-end presentation. 
  • Customization and Personalization: Regular design themes have the old user experience as they have default themes. Whereas Headless does not have any kind of pre-defined theme so each design is built from scratch and has a separate user experience.
  • Flexibility and adaptability: In regular designing front end is directly and tightly coupled with the backend so there is less scope for customization. Whereas in Headless design the design is prepared from scratch so there is an endless scope of customization.

How Webkul Creates Shopping cart and Checkout Pages with Headless Design Methodology

Webkul focuses on the eCommerce store’s checkout page or shopping cart page. So it is important to maintain both pages with the latest technology i.e headless.

Each business has different services and products. So the user experience and user interface too.

For example, online food delivery applications, online cab services, eCommerce stores, and booking applications all have a different shopping cart and checkout page.

Online cab booking

Here the user first sees the pickup location and drop location with the availability of cabs. The checkout page is not there. There is the page of your ride is completed. The payment is done once the ride gets started. Either during the ride or after the ride. 

Food delivery application

Here the user experience is different compare to the online cab. Here the user gets the filter what kind of food they like, select the restaurant, and can add instructions for cooking or not. All the user interface is based on customer requirement.

The checkout page contains the total number of items ordered. The user can plus and minus them. There is a button for placing my order for order confirmation.

The payment method also varies for each food delivery application. Usually, the payment page takes you to the third-party payment gateway.

As in headless technology, the design is done from scratch through a JSON file it depends on the client’s requirement and which method they want or not.

Hotel and travel booking

For these kinds of organizations, the user experience is different.

Firstly, the user has to tell the dates and place when and where they travel and then only they can proceed for further booking.

Here at the place of cart and shopping page there is confirm booking page. When the user confirms the booking the payment page will appear.

The payment can be with a debit card, credit card, UPI, or QR code scanner. Users can select whatever they want. When payment gets is process it will redirect to the third-party page for the amount debit.

How webkul focuses while designing pages

B2B: This is made for each business’s requirements and its order. Every customer wants to have a specific way to place an order.

A/B testing: The checkout page gets test with A/B testing. This helps pick up the best option. This best option carries the solution that increases the cart order value.

One-Click Checkout page: This is responsible for customers not leaving the cart. With one single click, the customer will go to the payment page. This reduces the count of cart abundance.

Use Customer History: History of the customer purchasing is a vital asset. On the cart page, the recommendation of the customer’s favorite products is done. This increases the value of the order.
