I'm looking for an eCommerce platform to use for a client's website. My requirements are the following:
- Free of charge.
- eCommerce admin dashboard to manage products, clients and orders.
- Much preferably without a front-end so that I can build my own (I'll probably build an AngularJS app) and use API requests to connect with the backend. It could also be something that has a front-end but that can be made headless with plug-ins or by removing code.
- "Nice-to-have": a backend that can be hosted in my own server. I.e. unlike Moltin (read below) who host all the eCommerce data in their servers.
Now, I've done my research and found that the closest thing to suit me is Moltin. My problem with it is that it allows for too few API requests in its free version.
Also, using Magento's API has kind of scared me off due to a lack of documentation when it comes to the platforms I'd like to use (AngularJS mainly). I'm still open to using it if you convince me otherwise.
