Migrating to a new commerce platform may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.

And with our free 60-day trial, you can see how easy it really is to make the move to a modern commerce architecture. Still have some queries before you get started? Read on to discover the answers to the top five questions about our trial.

top 5 FAQs for our 60-day trial

1. Why should I sign up for the trial?

The biggest draw of signing up for our 60-day trial is experiencing first-hand the ways in which commercetools has revolutionized and, ultimately, bettered the commerce landscape. To begin with, commercetools utilizes the MACH approach. An acronym that has grown wildly popular in the eCommerce industry, MACH stands for a Microservices-based, API-first, Cloud-native, Headless approach to commerce. These four components provide the flexibility to create innovative and seamless shopping experiences while meeting your business and marketing goals.

commercetools is also the founder of headless commerce technology, meaning the “head” or frontend (user interface) is decoupled from the backend. This frees companies from the rigid constraints of an all-in-one platform and instead enables faster innovation, rapid responses to market changes, personalized experiences across all channels and the ability to easily add new shopping touchpoints.

Our solution is not only trusted by Fortune 500 companies, but also recognized by influential technology analyst firms – Gartner, Forrester and IDC MarketScape – who recently honoured commercetools with a placement in the “Leaders Category” in their world-renowned industry reports.

2. I’m interested! How do I get started?

3. Is there any support from commercetools while I’m testing out the platform?

5. What happens after the trial is over?
