Commerce Layer is a headless commerce platform that has raised over 20M $ in fundings. Whether you’re building a single-product store or an international ecommerce website to process millions of orders, Commerce Layer provides all the APIs and developer tools you need to make any digital experience shoppable, anywhere. We have been working for Commerce Layer for over 3 years.
Commerce Layer came to Extendi in order to find a tech partner that would develop two microservices linked to its platform: a store locator and a hosted checkout.
An application within Commerce Layer's ecosystem. Each organization registered to Commerce Layer benefits from the hosted checkout app and can tailor how its customers interact with it.
After exploring the flow of the application, the screens required to complete the checkout, the various scenarios the users encounter, and the interface elements that can be customized by the organization, we extracted the new components to add to the existing React library which is used by the application we developed. The checkout application uses the SDK from Commerce Layer for the calls to the APIs necessary for the implementation of the checkout.
The application has been tested in every aspect and scenario. The framework used was cypress, which allowed us to carry out tests directly on the browser and on the interface itself. We set up a continuous integration pipeline, in order to run the test suite automatically.
A vertical application for managing physical stores of any type of business that needs to show the stores on a map, with information like timetables and integration with e-commerce.
