Headless e-commerce platform with Shopify
Instant Commerce offers an easy-to-use e-commerce platform where merchants can build a storefront on Shopify’s backend. Users do not have to do any coding. The software also provides integrations with e-commerce software like Storyblok, Algolia, Klaviyo, and Gorgias.
Instant Commerce was barely founded past year, and already has over 30 customers such as Bols and Ekster.
Its founders Coen van Hees, Doeke Leeuwis, and Sam van Hees were previously at the helm of Story of AMS, an e-commerce consulting company with clients such as Philips and Intersport.
According to its CEO, Coen van Hees “Our platform solves a huge challenge for e-commerce brands – how to build a highly functional and engaging online storefront in a fast and cost-effective way without relying on a large team of developers.”
He adds: “As a result, we’ve experienced an incredible amount of growth in such a short period of time. Now, with this investment, we will be able to really ramp up our expansion plans and enter markets beyond Europe.”
