Announcing the Turbo Shopify theme: High performance ecommerce

Announcing the Turbo Shopify theme: High performance ecommerce

After thousands of hours of development, design and testing, it’s finally here....

The biggest, baddest and, most importantly, fastest Shopify theme in the Out of the Sandbox arsenal!

We’ve given this new addition to our family the name “Turbo” — a name that’s meant to instill a sense of both power and speed.

And Turbo has rightfully earned this name.

The Shopify theme is packed with powerful new features that are ideal for stores of all sizes — but with a special eye to those with large inventories or large sales volumes.

Collection pages now feature options to show more items without requiring a page reload, so shoppers will have an easier time browsing even the most extensive collection offerings. We’ve added a “load more” button that lets users manually load more items without requiring a page reload.

Or, use the infinite scroll option to keep loading products as the user scrolls down the collection page, increasing engagement and encouraging shoppers to explore everything you have to offer.

Turbo features the most settings, options and configurations of any theme we’ve ever produced, giving store owners the power to control more elements of their stores without needing custom code.

Turbo’s also a fast little bugger — advanced coding techniques make pages load blazingly fast thanks to our “Ludicrous” page transition setting and other behind-the-scenes tricks.

When “Ludicrous” (the setting, not the rapper) is on, Turbo predicts what content your shopper will visit next and pre-loads that page in the background. So, if the user moves to that page — it will appear almost instantly.

Turbo also incorporates some creative ways to make your site seem even slicker.

Even though Shopify’s servers already serve up images darn fast, we’ve added thoughtful details to make those load times, however small, seem faster to your shoppers.

Large, high quality images have been designed to elegantly appear on screen as they load, giving your store a more nimble feel while also drawing shoppers’ eyes to the photography once it’s been fully loaded.

Turbo also uses “lazy loading” for images — a technique that images are only loaded when needed, to reduce page loading times. A new feature also lets Turbo intelligently detect your shopper’s screen size and load the most appropriate image size for it.

The checkout is a critical and largely rigid feature in Shopify (for good reason, too). As the platform has refined its checkout security and limited its adjustable aspects over the years, the options to customize the checkout have evolved and expanded.

As always, you can customize your checkout using your theme settings to suit your branding and preferences. Then control specific settings for your customers and the information they provide with the Shopify admin. And finally, extend the possibilities of your checkout’s functionality with approved apps additions.
