What is a product variant?
A product variant is a unique feature of the product offered to your clients. When your potential customers shop online, they can view the same product available in assorted, unique variants (identifiers), such as color, size, price, and more.

Why headless is the future of e-commerce?
Headless—or API-driven—is an architecture where business-logic/server-side is fully decoupled from the front-end experiences. As a result, programmers get full front-end development independence and a painless way to integrate with other APIs.
