The checkout process is painfully slow for our customers. From the time a customer clicks the “Place Order” button in the checkout, it takes up to 30 seconds to complete the order. It doesn’t matter if they are paying with a credit card, using a purchase order or the check option, every time it’s a long long delay.
We have several plug-ins on our live site. However, on our development site we only have 2 plugins and the Enfold theme. The plugins we are using are listed below:
We are using WordPress 5.0.3 with <Enfold Parent 4.5.3 & Enfold Child Theme 1.0
It doesn’t matter if we are on the LIVE site (lots of plugins) or the DEVELOPMENT site (3 basic plugins), the results are the same … a very long wait between clicking the “Place Order” button and the order confirmation page.
The only solution I found so far is to add a preloader so at least it looks like the cart is doing something.
If you’d like to experience the delay I’m talking about, please visit our development site [link provided in private content]
As I mentioned this site only has the necessary plug-ins and themes to function. Feel free to test the checkout process using Check payment.
With all my testing, I have narrowed the problem down to one of these 3 things…
Could the size of our database (1.1GB) be related to the delay? Any other idea of what may be causing this long delay?
Thank you in advance!
