If you signed up for Shopify Fast Tags before January 21, 2022, follow the first 2 steps of the Shopify Fast Tag set-up flow to make badges load faster for your customers. Most stores will see a 2-10x improvement!
- Reinstall Flexport's Shopify app by restarting the Shopify Fast Tag set-up flow. Make sure to enter your Shopify store name (the store that already has Fast Tags) and click "Install App"
- This will route you to your Shopify portal. Select "Add App" to update Fast Tag app permissions (we need one new permission (read_themes), which is why you have to go through this step again).
- Enable the Flexport embed in your Shopify theme by clicking 'Enable Fast Tags' and then saving the configuration in your Shopify theme that opens up in a new page.
- Return to the Fast Tag set up flow (Step 2. Enable Fast Tags in Your Shopify Theme) and click "Next" to verify that the app is embedded. You're all set! YOU DO NOT NEED TO CONTINUE THE SET-UP FLOW.
How Does it Work?
Previously, Shopify added Fast Tags to your storefront only after the rest of the page loads. Now, we can embed Fast Tags directly into your theme, so Shopify loads Fast Tags with your theme and badges appear almost instantaneously.
