About Plug in Speed

Speed Up Your Shop and Increase Conversions

Reductions in the load time of your shop can improve your conversion rates.

Faster speeds create a more positive experience for your customers.

This is key in encouraging customers to buy from you and can increase your shop’s average revenue per order.

Reduce Image Size but Maintain Quality

Using either our lossy or lossless compression technology you can reduce your image size with either minimal or no quality loss.

Retain 30 Day Image Backups

You can easily compare your optimized images with the originals inside the app.

If you are not happy with how an image has been compressed you can restore it to the original within 30 days.

Optimize your Code and Improve Your Theme’s Loading Time

Code optimizations allow a customer’s browser to read and process your shop’s code more efficiently.

Available Code Optimizations:

  • CSS Minification
  • JS Minification
  • JS Inlining

The minification process removes unnecessary items, such as whitespace and developer comments, from your code as it is being read by the browser. The items that are removed do not affect how your pages appear and function.*

Inlining works by taking files that are normally loaded from separate URLs and inserts the file content directly into your HTML. This reduces the total number of download requests made by the browser.*

*These code optimizations are non-destructive, so it won’t change your existing code. If you need to edit any of your code it will look the same as it always has. Additionally, if you choose to turn off the optimizations your code will return to being processed as it originally was.

Track Improvements

Your personalised Plug in Speed dashboard will help you track all the optimizations that have been made and how they have improved the speed of your shop.

Speed Optimization Metrics:

  • Average Load Time
  • Average Image Size
  • Size Reduction for each Image

Minimal Maintenance Required

After the initial setup, all images will be optimized automatically.

Changes to your code can be easily manually optimized inside your settings with one click.

The app is super simple to use. I always like super simple but the main issue for me was that it didn't really do anything for my store. I measured my site speed using a couple of tools before installing the app, and then measured again once the app had finished completing the optimizations and the needle hardly moved. The app developer reached out to me to say they will look into it to see if something custom can be done but this was taking time so I decided to delete the app as I didn't want to pay for something that didn't work.

It is an expensive app at $50 CAD per month each month but I can get over the price if I get some quality results. But this wasn't the case for me. Maybe it will work for you.

I like this app but I think the price is a bit too expensive, this is the most expensive app I installed on my shopify.
Other than the price, great app to speed up your site.

Hi! Thanks for the praise, it's great to hear you found Plug in Speed useful!

On a budget I'd recommend starting with a good base theme and making sure you don't have too many apps installed. That doesn't cost you anything and gets you pretty far.

You can also save money by manually optimizing your images using a tool like ImageOptim.

After that it gets pretty technical. Even many competent developers are not speed experts. Your options then are to learn, hire a speed expert or use an app.

We've invested heavily in making Plug in Speed deliver robust, tangible speed improvements that are applied automatically to any shop (not an easy engineering challenge!).

Compared to the alternatives I believe we save you time, money and stress.

Thanks again for trying us out! I appreciate the app might not be affordable for you at the moment but feel free to reach out with any speed questions you have to me at daniel@pluginuseful.com: I'm happy to help for no charge.

Cheers, Daniel

We downloaded this app to help decrease our page load times. After running the Google mobile speed test our website was ranking slow which directly impacts search rankings. One of the tips the Google report recommended was optimizing our code and CSS files, along with optimizing images. This app does both so it seemed like a perfect solution! Right off the bat our page load times decreased and we were ranking higher than our competitors sites. This is a HUGE advantage for us and we owe it all to this app!

Further, I contacted the support team later in the evening, not expecting a response until morning. Not only did they get back to me within minutes, they answered all of my questions right away! I could not be more impressed! I would give this team 10 stars if I could.

Thanks for the assistance and for the great app, I would highly recommend trying it out!
