Which is a faster e-commerce platform: Shopify or WooCommerce?

Asked 2 years ago

Which e-commerce trading platform is faster in terms of loading speed? I'm looking for something that is not only user-friendly but also efficient. I don't want potential customers to close the page because something takes forever to load. I like the usability of Shopify and WooCommerce, which would you recommend for speed?

Some factors to consider in terms of page speed are the website theme, hosting, and images. For website themes, WooCommerce doesn't control what must be included in the themes and some will slow down the store. While Shopify has more control over what is allowed in the themes.

For images, Shopify has a Content Delivery Network (CDN) that helps in the faster loading of images while you'll have to install one in WooCommerce. On hosting, WooCommerce is a self-hosted platform where you'll have to take care of the page speed while Shopify, is a hosted platform that takes care of the page speed.

In terms of speed, Shopify is faster than WooCommerce.
