Shopify Plus however, like standard Shopify, is hardly immune to performance issues in China. How exactly?

A shocking 80% of Shopify Plus sites run into timeout errors in China.

More specifically, it's common for Shopify Plus sites to run into -

1. Slow loading times

Shopify Plus boasts a performance leap made possible with a series of infrastructural upgrades including Storefront Renderer, a Ruby application that is dedicated to serving storefront requests with a 2x to 2.5x performance gain^ – except in China. More on this below.

2. Incompatible resources

Blocked resources, such as YouTube & Vimeo – plus a number of slow web resources across both primary and third-party resources. This includes, ‘basic’ Shopify functionality like media assets, videos, fonts, etc that are not optimised for China's unique web infrastructure.

The wealth of add-ons available on the Shopify App marketplace and 3rd-party plugins also add to the list of incompatibilities. 

These collectively make for a slow-loading experience that's sometimes broken.

Did you know? 79% of customers 'dissatisfied' with a site’s performance are less likely to buy from them again (source: Skilled).
