    I’ve got a Shopify website that loads not so fast as I want. What are the CSS tricks I can use to solve my problem?


    CSS rarely affects loading speeds.

    The CSS files are usually miniscule compared to images etc.

    I suggest you use the diagnostic tools that come with your browser to see where the various parts of you page contribute to the loading time.


    Instead of looking at CSS, use your browser’s developer tools to look at network speed.

    Things I find affecting network speed on Shopify are:

    • Image size
    • Javascript
    • Large pages with complex templates.

    I’ve known shopify to be slow, but never because of CSS.

    If you showed your site you could check it using pagespeed from Google. Can you check by yourself? And then give us a screenshot so we can give you advice.
