How to Improve WooCommerce Speed
Is your WooCommerce speed in need of a boost? Maybe your WooCommerce checkout is slow and hurting conversion? People can't purchase from you if they've already abandoned your site. The best and easiest way to boost conversion is to speed up your store.
The team at WP Hero are experts in speeding up WooCommerce, from years of experience working with sites with thousands of products that generate $10,000’s in revenue each and every month.
If you have a long WooCommerce page loading time, you are losing sales. It’s that simple. No one wants to wait around. According to Kissmetrics, a mere 1 second delay in page response can result in a 7% reduction in conversions.
This means if your WooCommerce store is making $100,000 per day, a 1 second page delay could potentially cost you $2.5 million in lost sales every year.
WooCommerce Speed Boosting Service
WP Hero uses state of the art diagnostics tools to measure your speed and fix the bottlenecks. Here are just a few of the services we provide to optimize your WordPress and WooCommerce speed:
Leverage Browser Caching
We fix browser and server caching. Why make your site keep loading the same pages over and over again? We have experience with all the best WordPress caching plugins and we know how to configure your host so that your site serves up a much faster, stored version of your site. Careful though: a dynamic transactional system like WooCommerce can’t be cached like an ordinary WordPress site. We know what can be cached and what cannot.
Reduce Server Response Time
Finding a fast WooCommerce host is an important first step. But regardless of who you are hosting with, we’ll make the most of your system resources to speed up your server response time. We’ll make sure your memory and other configuration settings are setup correctly for optimal speed.
We analyze your plugins and remove any that are slowing your site down or are no longer needed. We remove the clutter that is getting in the way of your screaming fast site. We remove old post revisions, spam comments, and log files that are constantly growing behind the scenes.
We’ll compress (gzip) your files. It’s like packing more things in your suitcase. Don’t make more trips, just fit more in your bags!
Use a CDN
We can help you with your CDN so no matter if your customer is across the street or across the globe, they get a lightning fast experience.
Remove Render-Blocking Resources
Do you read from bottom to top? Neither do we! No sense making your visitors wait to see the top of your WooCommerce site while the bottom is loading. We’ll use lazy loading to get render blocking scripts “below the fold”
Optimize WooCommerce Site Images
We minimize the file size of your images without compromising on quality. Our Managed WooCommerce plans and above include premium plugins such as WP Smush Pro. We’ll continue to auto-compress your images as you add them in the future.
These are just a few of the ways we make WooCommerce faster. Turbo charge your WordPress site speed with our Managed WooCommerce plan and jump in the fast lane today!
