To put this in perspective, our entire SuiteCommerce Advanced customers completed these exact steps on average in 34.0 seconds in the month of December 2016. While some sites are faster and some slower, this guide will help you build a faster website, and thereby improve your customer experience, conversion rates and ultimately your revenues.
Some of the steps below are simple best practices, and some can be more complex like optimizing SuiteScript or the SEO output. In either case, don’t underestimate their importance. The little things add up quickly when it comes to performance.
Bear in mind the NetSuite names it’s steps based on the action taken – not the page you are landing on. For example, Proceed to Checkout is the timing from when a user is viewing their cart, clicks the “proceed to checkout” button and the resulting page renders and executes in its entirety.
