Does the EcoCart widget impact my page loading time?

In an ecommerce world, page load speed can have a significant impact on the shopping experience for customers in Shopify. A slow-loading page can cause frustration and result in a higher bounce rate, as customers are likely to abandon the website if they have to wait too long for a page to load.

In addition, search engines like Google may penalize websites with slow page load times, potentially affecting the store's visibility and search ranking. Therefore, it's important for Shopify store owners to optimize their page load speeds to ensure a positive shopping experience for their customers. This can be achieved through various methods such as using a fast and reliable hosting service, minimizing the use of heavy images and videos, and using a streamlined theme that is optimized for performance.

This raises questions in relation to using EcoCart for our merchants. “Does EcoCart affect Page Loading speed?”

Does EcoCart Affect Page Loading Speed?

A simple answer to this would be no. Our widget and system architecture is designed to not affect the page load speed beyond a few milliseconds which as result offers, better customer retention, improved returning customers rate, and an opportunity for stores to be carbon neutral!

To explain this in detail, our systems rely on CDN to serve the EcoCart widget within the page. This allows the page speed to not be affected regardless of which part of the world the customers are visiting your store from.   

In addition to this, we have implemented a fail-safe measure that will ensure that the EcoCart widget does not load in case of a failure and that the buying flow continues. This also generates an alert for our team to review and rectify the error as soon as possible.
