From unexpected downtimes to fees for third-party integrations, merchants who run their business through Shopify must navigate a range of issues to ensure that their businesses run smoothly.
In this blog we will discuss some of the issues that merchants face while running an eCommerce Store through Shopify and discuss solutions that can improve the efficiency of your business!
Site Performance plays a critical role in how well your online business is doing. This means that how fast your page loads and becomes interactive directly affects how likely a consumer is to complete a purchase. Bounce rates on most websites increase by 32% when Page Loading Times increase from 1s to 3s. This means that your business must race to be the fastest and most seamless experience. Read our blog on SEO strategies to find out more about how you can drive organic traffic and convert it for your business.
One of the first steps to building an online store is getting your products list and information on the platform without a hitch. This process can prove to be quite difficult for first-time users and they may fail to complete their imports due to errors in their files. While .CSV transfers are allowed these files can fail to upload if there are any errors in the content. Hence, for business owners with a large portfolio of products, we recommend looking into Inventory Management systems and for all merchants in general this Shopify thread should be helpful.
Shopify themes can get tricky to manage especially when you have tweaked them to work for your business. Common issues faced by merchants are:
a) Page Redirects: This is when a page is redirecting to an unintentional destination. Pagefly has some code that can possibly offer a remedy. Check it here.
b) HTML error: This problem usually occurs when there is a syntax error in your code. You may have to look over your code to check for any syntax issues or missing/extra tags to fix the problem.
c) Failure to Load A Page: This may occur due to sloppy code or syntax errors. To remedy the issue, you may inspect the Liquid file containing the issue as displayed on the error message.
