The world is changing very fast, specially technologically. In the early days of internet there was eCommerce, still it is. But things have changed a lot. In early days of eCommerce it was mostly single application running on the web. But with the revolution of smart devices (ie: smart phone), the trend is changing. These days people mostly do their day to day task including shopping with their smart phone, smart watch etc. Hence you have to adopt it to run your online business, otherwise you may loss huge number of your customers. Traditional eCommerce solutions are broken and build on top of old technologies. Besides tightly coupled frontend won't give you much flexibility on customiztion of your storefront. You have to look for specific domain expert to develop a solution on top of the platform, where you have to use their tools. On the other hand headless solution will give me more flexibility how you design you frontend and you can integrate multiple channel as per customers need. headless API's are also faster and secure than traditional eCommerce solutions.
Technology is expensive
Software development is an expensive process. You have to hire developers, project managers, QA's and most important time. Even sometimes it becomes impossible for small to medium companies, because of time and costing restrictions. If you think about developing your tech eco system from scratch that may kill lot of your money and time. So why not use already developed backend and integrate that with your frontend, which will save lots of your bucks?
To give your customers best experience you have to bring your existence to all platforms including web, mobile, smart devices etc. And to do so you will need a highly performant backend system, where you can integrate your frontends without any hassle.
Your consumer could be from any platform ie: Android, iOS, Web, Smart phone, IoT devices and what not. But your data should come to a single place and should be in sync. Because maintaining data differently for different apps would be hectic and unmaintainable.
