@ItClosetthe easiest way to see if you have any issues is running your site through the Shopify Analyzer. That's a free tool my team built for the community, it's geared specifically for Shopify sites so doesn't include the irrelevant warnings that a general tool may give.


From there, there are free guides linked if you have a developer on your team they can follow those. Of course, if you prefer an expert to handle it just contact us through the site. We can also do a free analysis if you'd like just reach out to


Lastly, since you mentioned this started a few weeks ago, make note of what changes you made to your site in that time (website changes, installed new apps, uninstalled apps, etc). That information will help to identify what changed and how to either fix or optimize as best as possible.

Hello @ItCloset,

By following the below steps, you can significantly speed up your Shopify store:

1. Removing unused app code is a best practice that avoids running code for unused features and makes your theme code easier to read.
2. Use a theme that is optimized for performance
3. Themes contain CSS, JS, HTML which can increase and affect your store speed. So disable theme features you don't use.
4. Loading extra data your customers aren't using can impact your store speed without adding value.
5. If you are using slideshows, keep slideshows of featured images to 2-3 slides or use one featured image.
6. Use a System font which is a font that is already installed on most computers. For example Segoe UI, Times New Roman. If you use a font that does not yet exist on your customer's computer, then the font has to be downloaded before your text can be displayed. This impacts the time that your store takes to load.
7. Reduce the use of large-sized images and also compress images without losing the quality
8. Use minified CSS and JS files
9. Replace GIFs with static images
10. To reduce the initial load time, you can use Lazyload technique
11. Remove third-party JS scripts and Shopify App which you are no longer using
12. Minimize HTTP requests
13. Avoid unnecessary redirects and fix broken links

If your website takes longer than 3 seconds to load, 40% of your traffic will be lost.
