Payload, a New Headless CMS, Launches to the Public
Payload is a brand new CMS that makes complex and globally distributed software dramatically easier and more cost-effective to build.
Payload CMS is a headless Content Management System and Application Framework built with NodeJS, React, and MongoDB.
Payload is a "headless" CMS. The headless CMS concept has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few years. They allow you to edit and publish content in one place but use your content from any number of devices—including websites, mobile apps, smart TVs, wearables, etc. They don't place restrictions on how developers build their apps and focus solely on managing and delivering content.
Payload delivers an impressive set of features:
- GraphQL, REST, and NodeJS APIs
- Easily customizable ReactJS Admin
- Fully self-hosted
- Extensible user Authentication & Access Control
- Field-based content Localization
- Powerful field types, including a layout builder
Payload is free for local and development purposes, and production licenses are priced competitively at $22 per month if paid annually.
Payload CMS was founded in 2018. Since then, an array of projects using Payload were piloted and released — including an online video game, a full ecommerce experience complete with product customization, a SaaS subscription product, a virtual events platform, and more. Now, Payload is available to the public. Payload was founded by James Mikrut, Dan Ribbens, and Elliot DeNolf, who are longtime friends and seasoned web developers living in Grand Rapids, MI. It is supported by digital design agency TRBL.
