What is ShopWired's USP?

We pride ourselves on the support we give to our customers.

Whether that's helping a complete novice setup a new website or the multi-million pound businesses increase customer loyalty and conversion rates.

How did you measure site speeds?

We sampled 5 websites at random from each platform and tested download speeds using the Pingdom service, an average download speed was then calculated.

Do review scores matter?

Absolutely. Platforms with a high review score like ShopWired and Bluepark put a lot of effort into the support that they give their customers.
