The new Spree UX is fully customizable so feel free to tweak it to your needs: the overall styling (colors, fonts, roundings, borders), header, footer, placeholder images and text, SEO settings.
To help you customize your eCommerce platform we’ve prepared:
Blazing fast performance
Performance is one of the leading factors in eCommerce conversion rates and SEO traffic. It was one of our goals to reduce page views loading times and make the UI snappy and responsive.
This leads to more conversions, more organic search traffic, more sales and more market value brought to the business owners.
SEO and structured data
Turbolinks - single-page application without the hassle
Of course, you can still combine it with React, Vue or Angular!
Easy migration path
