Building Afrodite’s Beaute e-commerce store

Creating an e-commerce store can be a complex task, especially when you want to avoid using a platform like WordPress. However, by using GatsbyJs and transforming WooCommerce into a headless CMS, we were able to accomplish this task with ease. In this blog post, we’ll be discussing the process of creating an e-commerce store called Afrodite’s Beaute using these two powerful tools.

GatsbyJs is a static site generator that allows you to build fast and performant websites using React. By using GatsbyJs to generate the static pages of our e-commerce store, we were able to achieve a blazingly fast website that loads quickly for our customers. GatsbyJs also allows us to easily implement a variety of different functionality and features, such as image optimization, lazy loading, and more.

One of the main advantages of using GatsbyJs is that it allowed us to use WooCommerce as a headless CMS. By using WooCommerce in this way, we were able to easily manage our store’s products, orders, and customer data without having to worry about the front-end of our website. We also created a custom configuration for the cart, coupons, and checkout functionality which retrieves data from the server and serves up-to-date information to the users in real-time.

In addition to its speed and functionality, Afrodite’s Beaute is also optimized for SEO. We used Gatsby’s powerful plugin system to add structured data, meta tags, and other SEO-friendly elements to the website. We were also able to achieve a 99 score on Google’s Page Insights, which means that our website is highly optimized for search engines and serves data extremely quickly.

Overall, the process of creating an e-commerce store using GatsbyJs and WooCommerce as a headless CMS was a success. Not only is the website blazingly fast and optimized for SEO, but it also provides a seamless and user-friendly experience for our customers. If you’re considering creating an e-commerce store, we highly recommend considering this approach.
