Shopify introduced two big performance improvements
Shopify announced it has recently launched two big infrastructure upgrades that have been automatically enabled for all online stores.
The first is an improvement to its network infrastructure that expanded its points of presence from 2 to 180 nodes across 80 countries. This means that Shopify reduced the time it takes for traffic to get to their servers.
With this upgrade, we’ve reduced the overall request times by up to 39%, which means shoppers can access your pages much faster. To date, we’ve seen the most notable improvements in international markets like Australia, Japan, India and Singaporern
Second, it has added automatic support for the highly optimized WebP image format to online stores.
The platform says these features are now included at no additional cost for all Shopify subscriptions.
