Thanks for reaching out.
You have a lovely store! I would be more than happy to provide some suggestions for improving your online store speed. My first recommendation is to remove the unwanted or unused applications from the store, if find yourself no longer using the app features. If you have an application that is added to the store but not being used, it can still be added to the coding of the theme and affect the loading of the online store. You can disable the applications or remove it from the store.
Secondly, you can make some minimal changes to the store to improve the loading time. To avoid downloading a new font to your customer's computer, you can use a system font that is already installed on most computers. If you are interested in changing your homepage font, you can do so through the Theme Editor. Once you are in the theme editor, you can make your way to the Theme Settings. I took an screenshot from my test store to show you the section I am referring to:
You can then select Typography to make changes to the font:
Lastly, since the homepage has a lot of images that have been added. Another way to improve the online store speed is to slightly reduce the quality of the images. We have an awesome article that covers Image Optimization: 10 Must Know Image Optimization Tips that goes into great detail about reducing the file size of your images as much as possible without sacrificing quality.
Let me know what you think.
It's PageFly - Shopify Page Builder App here and there's some notice I have when checking your site speed. Here's the results of your page speed checked on PageSpeed Insights: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.portronics.com%2F&tab=... . The score on Desktop is 57, but on Mobile, it only scores 19 so here's some of my suggestions to improve your site.
1. Remove all unnecessary CSS code, this might come from your theme code. You can contact Theme Provider to see if there's anything they can do to minimize the theme code.
2. Minify all your images to reduce their weight to your pages. Recommended ones are JPG, PNG, JPEG and you can run it through some image compression tool to reduce its size as well.
3. You can try Lazy Loading as well to reduce loading time all at once. PageFly do offer this feature as default when building page.
So I hope that these are somewhat helpful for you in improving your site speed. you can also check out this article on Page Speed optimization . If you find this comment helpful, please give it a like and mark as solution. Wish you all the best!

Hello @Shivam97 ,
Get rid of the slider and the code that goes with it, they hurt conversions and load times.
And then remove all the links to the social media sites, they hurt conversions and load times.
