The Sanity Ecommerce CMS 🖥️
This announcement marks the release of a set of solutions that will make the task of curating positive and seamless user experiences across Shopify easier.
We here at Karmoon think that it may interest you to know that many of these shiny new tools have been developed and built using the new developer preview of Hydrogen - Shopify’s latest front-end React framework.
Introducing Sanity - The Headless Ecommerce CMS 💻
According to Sanity, the solution’s customers reap tonnes of value from the platform and we guess that the company’s structured content philosophy is one of the main reasons why.
In a nutshell, structured content enables users to centralise data and get their business to market faster.
Since merchants will have a single source of truth for all of their product information, users will easily be able to sync and enrich that data across their ecommerce technology stack via API.
Operating within an efficient editing environment means that rapid iterations can be implemented so, merchants will have the ability to access; new product pages, flash sales and campaigns to get their online store to market in a shorter time frame.
Sanity’s Latest Developer Apps & Tools
With the new apps and tools that the ecommerce CMS has released, digital users on Shopify can excitingly make use of these new features.
The latest developer tools that were made available to Shopify’s merchants only yesterday which includes the; Shopify marketplace, a query connector plugin and a demo store app.
This toolkit provides Shopify businesses with a way to combine their products and marketing content so that unique shopping experiences can be built to convert browsers into buyers effortlessly.
So, for the merchants reading this article who are looking for a way in which they can set their store apart from the competition, try Sanity Connect for Shopify to gain new customers and keep loyal customers coming back for more.
