Knowing how to fix WooCommerce performance issues is key to your online business’ success. The snappier your ecommerce site is to your users, the better their online shopping experience. And the better their user experience, the more likely they are to place an order. All in all, this translates to more sales and profits. Hence, performance is at the core of your Woocommerce store’s success.
According to a study, 46% of users don’t revisit a poorly performing site. Hence, it’s common for ecommerce sites to miss out on potential sales due to performance issues. If you haven’t optimized your site for performance, you can lose even more during high seasonal traffic days such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
While you can use many techniques to speed up your ecommerce site, quickly solving a pressing performance issue is challenging. It requires proactive monitoring of the site’s overall environment. That’s where an application performance monitoring tool like Kinsta APM can be super helpful.

The Various Components of an Ecommerce Site
To run an ecommerce site at optimal performance, all the pieces matter. From its hosting infrastructure and ecommerce platform to its third-party integrations and the checkout process, everything counts!

Its various extensions also make it super simple to extend the store’s functionality with many essential components.
