Support » Plugin: WooCommerce PayPal Checkout Payment Gateway » Slowed my site down from 79 GTMetrix score to 57

  • Doing A/B testing with this plugin installed and then deactivated & deleted, my GTMetrix rating would fall on average 13-22 points when this plugin was installed and activated. I tried multiple times back to back uninstalling and running speed tests and every single time when i uninstalled this plugin, my speed increased ALOT. GTMetrix showed 7-8 HTTP Requests on EVERY SINGLE PAGE on my store, yet there was no paypal or mini cart or anything. This plugin has a LARGE footprint with external http requests and it really hurt my site to the point where i clicked a page and it took 7-8 seconds to load versus not having this plugin installed and pages loaded in under 2 seconds.
