What's New In Shoprocket 2.0

Here's a recap of what we've been up to in May 

In this edition:

  • The World's fastest cart
  • Update/print bulk orders 
  • Product ribbons new style options
  • New 'items per page' filter
  • New shipping option & inclusive/exclusive taxes
  • Site of the month

The World's Fastest Cart

Did you know that 53% of mobile users abandon websites that take longer than 3 seconds to load?

That's why we've been working on extensive updates to our network & API to make Shoprocket the fastest ecommerce platform in the World.

Using our globally distributed network, coupled with 'smart events' and browser caching, we've reduced our average store load times to just 95 milliseconds.


Test results:

Shoprocket, Shopify, Selz, Ecwid

Update & Print Bulk Orders

You can now select multiple orders via your dashboard and update them in bulk, or print them/save to PDF with a new simplified packaging slip design


Product Ribbons, CSS Vars & More

Highlight your latest products, items on sale and digital downloads with our new "ribbons" which can be enabled via the dashboard with a single click.

For the more technical among you, we've also switched to "CSS vars" which allows you to update the theme colours with less code.

We've also added even more options to the code generator to allow for extra styling and customisation for your embeds.


New Embed Filter: Items Per Page

Your customers can now choose how many items to show per page, making it even easier to browse large product catalogues.

And naturally like all things Shoprocket, it's extremely fast!

New Shipping Rate Type & Tax Update

We've added an extra shipping rate type, "Fixed + Rate Per KG".

As the name suggests this allows you to set a base price, with an included weight allowance, then charge extra for every KG/lb etc over the threshold.

We've also updated the tax feature to allow for exclusive and inclusive taxes. Ideal for countries where tax is usually included in the price, such as the UK VAT.


Site Of The Month

To showcase the many possibilities with Shoprocket, we're presenting our favourite store each month.

This month is Yol Sandals, who have combined our buy buttons with their existing website to create a unique shopping experience.
