I run a stock assets store with stock animation, stock GIFs and vectors called [login to view URL]
It's on WooCommerce with the Flatsome Theme and some tiny custom modification for video previews on mouse hover. I know from the start that this is not the best solution for a big store (not even WordPress + Woo), but being a very small startup it will have to do. Currently cannot afford a custom solution from scratch outside WordPress + WooCommerce.
But it's a good enough solution for now.
I have built the site myself and tried to optimize it as much as possible for speed recently:
- CloudWays hosting + CDN
- CloudFlare DNS and Domain Registrar
- Perfmatters & WP Rocket
- Imagify for image compression
While it increased the site speed, overall it's still just average speed score.
From what I understood, a lightweight template would improve this even further, such as Astra or Generate Press (I'm happy to purchase a PRO version if needed?). I also imagine that a professional WP developer can optimize and tweak everything even further to make it as clean and lightweight as possible.
The main reasons that I'm doing this are:
- user experience (it used to load in 10s+)
- higher speed scores for higher SEO rankings
Main functionalities of my store that I need:
- home page with some blocks, probably easy to recreate in custom
- normal shop page with filters
- I like the design and layout, we can keep it for now (I don't mind if it changes a little based on new theme)
- video preview on mouse hover (video preview files hosted on S3, thumbnails included in Media)
- have GIF products as well (they currently play automatically - would love to have those play on hover as well if possible, so that it doesn't crash the page when 30 GIFs automatically play at the same time on the shop page, as it does now)
- needs to be mobile responsive and have high mobile speed score on Google Page Speed
Further down the road, I want some more advanced features added and a redesign of the UX, but for now I want to build a clean and fast foundation first.
I hope that explains it properly, I'm ready to answer any questions!
