Speed is critical in eCommerce, but how else can Shopware help your site be the best that it can be?


Supercharge your traffic

Oh wow! Your top-selling product was on TV! While you’re getting slapped on the back, your site is being overloaded with traffic and could max out at any time.

Our optimised solutions can handle vast amounts of traffic coming to your site without page speed slowing down. While other platforms could potentially overload, Shopware’s newest update allows shoppers to keep on browsing and buying even during high-traffic periods.


Shopware StaffGoogle rankings

Shopware is all about speed – we like that at UKFast! The platform makes your eCommerce site page load time go through the roof. According to Google, the bounce rate of shoppers who have to wait too long to load a page is significant: a waiting period of anywhere between one to three seconds increases the likelihood of a visitor abandoning the website by 32%, and a load time of up to five seconds increases it by 90%.

What’s more, Google’s algorithm boosts sites with top page loading times. With Shopware’s improved page loading speed, your site can rise up the Google rankings and reach for the very top.



Who likes having to scroll for four hours on your phone before you get to the checkout? Not us, that’s for sure!

With over 50% of online purchases being made from a smart phone or device, Shopware users have nothing to fear. Not only are Shopware sites search engine optimised but they are mobile-friendly. This is another huge boost for Google rankings, as this is yet another element of Google’s ranking algorithm.

Shopware 5 already includes a responsive template as standard, which perfectly adapts content for various mobile devices, meaning that your site can be viewed perfectly on all platforms.


Switching to Shopware offers a brand new way of working, allowing you to optimise every avenue of SEO and keep your business booming with ease. So get in gear and get your business moving.
