About Preloader

Why choose Preloader?

Preloader helps increase conversion rate and reduce bounce rate by adding eye-candy animation for your store and entertain customers when they wait for page to load.

Having e-store is great, people can buy your products online whenever and wherever they want. But your store often depends on apps, which takes resources, which makes your store loads longer. In addition to that for many clients the internet connection is slow, and that means waiting for your site to load.

For your competitors that means a blank screen, where impatient customers can get bored and leave.

Amazon found every 0.1s of Latency Cost them 1% in Sales.

Couple facts:

According to Kissmetrics report, 47 percent of visitors expect a website to load in less than 2 seconds, and 40 percent of visitors will leave the website if the loading process takes more than 3 seconds.

Um quadrado ao redor da animação? Fala sério! Horrível! Atendimento com desenho de um chat e leva para escrever mensagem em e-mail. Totalmente ultrapassado, terão que rever seus conceitos e muito bem. Um abraço.

well, it was pretty easy to set up and it seems like its functioning well. I made my own animation and uploaded that so I can't speak to its ability to animate still png/jpg logos - but for me so far it seems fine.
