Slow-loading websites cost retailers £1.73bn in lost sales each year

Online retailers lose an estimated £1.73bn in global sales each year due to slow loading speeds, according to new research from online customer data platform QuBit.

Slow loading times are incredibly frustrating for shoppers, yet the Retail Focus white paper suggests e-commerce sites do not see site speed as a top priority.

The report also highlights the fact that consumers are becoming more impatient.
