We've built Shoptimizer based upon research and best practices, many of which have been covered by Baymard who have analyzed the top eCommerce sites on the web. Speed, design, and conversions are key.

Six reasons why Shoptimizer is the most optimized WooCommerce theme
1) The fastest eCommerce theme.
Speed is essential — a delay of even miliseconds equals lost orders. We've benchmarked Shoptimizer against the most popular WooCommerce themes in the industry.
Research has shown that even a one second delay equals a 7% reduction in conversions. This is real money for online businesses — speed has become a vital factor.
Better SEO rankings
Organic search is a huge part of most business’s performance, as well as a critical component of the buyer funnel and ultimately getting users to complete an engagement.
Faster than the competition
We've benchmarked Shoptimizer against five of the leading WooCommerce themes. See how it stacks up in terms of performance, speed and the first meaningful paint time.

Critical CSS creation
Minified and Critical CSS created automatically!
Shoptimizer includes speed related theme options which include automatic minification of the main CSS file for super fast loading. Also, it dynamically creates a 'critical CSS' stylesheet so that it loads almost instantly the contents of a user's viewport.
This critical CSS gives an impression of immediate interaction with your site with no waiting — a huge conversion milestone for eCommerce businesses.
Groundbreaking theme performance
Incredible speed scores!
Running Shoptimizer through Google's Lighthouse audit results in a perfect performance score with a first meaningful paint of only 630 miliseconds! Future updates to Shoptimizer will target maximum scores throughout — our goal is to make this the most optimized theme in the market.
2) Designed for conversions
A conversion optimized theme for your store is important in that it can multiply your success without you having to spend more time and money on traffic acquisition.
Complete an order quicker
We've a theme option included which removes the header, footer and sidebars leaving the primary focal point of the checkout — the payment details form. This distraction-free checkout leads to better conversions and we've included a facility to add trust badges and a testimonial for reassurance.
Request a call back feature
While researching eCommerce conversions we came across an interesting case study of a site which replaced its phone number with a 'Call me back' option and experienced a dramatic uptick in sales. We've included this feature in Shoptimizer as it's especially important for stores selling high-value but relatively complex products and customers may need more information before purchasing.
Add key information beside the buy button
Additional product information
A research study has shown that 64% of users begin thinking of shipping costs on the product page and 61% of users have abandoned orders in the last quarter because of the extra costs. Baymard's research has shown that crucial information like this should be placed below the product buy button where it is easily seen.
Keeps the add to cart action in view
Sticky product details on scroll
When scrolling down an individual product a sticky bar keeps the product thumbnail, title, price and add to cart button in view encouraging conversions on long single product pages with lots of content.
On the cart and checkout
Use trust badges at crucial stages
It's essential that a buyer feels reassured at this stage, especially if they are buying from you for the first time. Studies have shown that 18% of users have abandoned a checkout flow during the last 3 months because they didn’t trust the site with their credit card information. Shoptimizer makes it easy to include your integrated trust badges below the primary call to action button on the cart and checkout.
Include Single Product FOMOs
It's easy to include a timer sales countdown on each product along with an animated stock counter to persuade customer's to buy. This can use real data or virtual data to increase the feeling of scarcity and speed up a potential purchase.
For popular products
Add slide up sales notifications
Display recent orders on your site and increase conversions by highlighting what other people are buying. Display orders in real time and increase social proof. Build a sense of urgency and expose new items to buy!
3) SEO enhancements
Organic search is most often the primary source of website traffic. Choosing a theme optimized for SEO is crucial for online businesses.
Add additional copy
Superior product category SEO
We've included an additonal field for WooCommerce categories which allow for far better SEO spidering. Now, you can add featured category text and an image to the top and additional keyword-rich copy below which will lead to far better search results placement.
Mobile optimized for the mobile first index
A huge impact on SEO rankings
From 2018, Google have changed how they index websites. Mobile first means that the mobile version of your website becomes the starting point for what Google includes in their index, and the baseline for how they determine rankings. Mobile page speed and load time are prioritized within Shoptimizer and images are optimized for the mobile experience.

Tested with screen readers
A screen reader will read out loud the contents of a web page and help you navigate websites without seeing the screen and it’s how blind and low-vision visitors use the web. By putting us in our readers shoes we've tested Shoptimizer to ensure accessibility.

Before buying a WooCommerce theme, no matter how it looks or performs, I always consider the level, promptness and quality of support. Colm and Simon of CommerceGurus know their WordPress stuff - and the support they offer is excellent. Besides, when a theme like Shoptimizer looks professional and is deeply optimized for WooCommerce speed and performance, well, I'd look no further.
Rodolfo Melogli — Business Bloomer
The Flexibility of the theme is just Awesome, Supports every plugin out there without breaking a sweat, & one of the best themes in the market to build a Woocommerce store. 10/10 for the Flexibility, Speed, Pre-built layout, SEO sections and for the Exceptional Customer support Cheers to Simon & the team :)
Tejas SJ — Gitagged
We chose Shoptimizer for its conversion based features, speed and Elementor builder. We switched from a bloated Visual Composer based theme, that while had a lot of cool “features” it was too much bloat. We are excited to see how our conversions do on the new platform and will be working closely with Simon and staff at CommerceGurus to get us there.
