Slow loading pages is one of the most significant factors of high cart abandonment rates on an ecommerce website. According to recent research, 40% of shoppers would leave an online store without making a purchase if a web page loads longer than 3 seconds. Besides, page loading time is an essential aspect for higher rankings of website pages in the Google search results. Also, you should keep in mind that lately, m-commerce is rapidly developing, so more customers are coming to your store from their mobile devices. That’s why it is also crucial to provide smartphone and tablet users with a flawless shopping experience and agile browsing through your webstore pages.
