Slow Theme?

11 0 3

My website is ridiculously slow and I have tried every app under the sun to try and speed it up.  I'm wasting so much money.  I'm starting to think it's the theme and I'm thinking of switching.  At the moment I'm looking at Boostheme. Plak and Vodoma.  Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

It's hard to automate performance optimization with an app, for most of it you need a human to analyze and optimize.

Here's how to optimize your site:

1) Run your site through the Shopify Analyzer to see what can and should be optimized.

2) Follow the recommendations, or check out this Shopify optimization guide I wrote:

3) Optimize accordingly, or if you prefer hiring an expert contact my team at

For themes, there's usually not much variance in performance unless your theme does not have lazy loading implemented, that's a key optimization point. Here are my favorite themes and where I find them for projects:

Founder of Speed Boostr (Shopify optimization and dev agency).
Creator of Theme Scientist (A/B testing app).
Creator of Order Automator (app that auto tags + fulfills orders, send emails).
Creator of Tip Jar (add a tip button to your store).
Creator of Shopify Analyzer (free performance analysis tool).
My team also builds custom apps and automated solutions.
Enjoy the adventure!

Except Plak. I haven't used the other themes you mentioned, and one thing I can tell you, Plak is a great theme, super fast (they claim to be the fastest, and I do believe they are).

I had turbo theme before Plak, but with Plak my conversion rate increased.

I also use their feature called (blurry coupon) it doesn't exist in any app.

So I highly recommend Plak for you
