Good businesses are fast. From quick shipping to prompt support, customers reward speed. The same is true when it comes to your online store. Sluggish performance and slow load times can drag down your business's first impression—and your sales.

That’s why we're releasing new transparent reporting that lets you see exactly how fast your online store is and where you can make improvements. We run speed tests for your home page and highest-traffic collection and product pages, then combine each page’s Google Lighthouse speed score into an overall score. Plus, you’ll get a sense of how your store’s speed compares to similar businesses.

From first impressions to return visitors, give your customers the speedy shopping experience they expect. You can check your store's speed in Shopify, and all Shopify merchants will have access to the report by next week.

What's your speed score?

Your online store’s speed score, powered by Google Lighthouse, will be a number out of 100. Before taking direct steps to improve your score, it’s best to understand how it's calculated, and how it works for your Shopify store.
