Store’s Speed Score Evaluation

Website speed is a measurement of how fast the content on your site loads. There’s no need to argue that a faster site speed means a better user experience and conversion rate.

But do you know how your online store is performing in benchmark with your competitors? Do you know the factors that impact your site speed and how to improve them?

Let us give you a clue.

Starting today, you can check your Shopify site’s speed score right in the Transcy app dashboard! We analyze all the critical factors that influence your store’s speed and represent them by a score ranging from 0 (Poorest) to 100 (Best), based on Google’s PageSpeed Insights tool.

Now you can check your store speed right on the Transcy app’s dashboard

In addition, you can also find valuable analysis and advice on improving your speed by clicking on the “Fix speed issue with expert” button to live chat with our experts.

Social Proof Score Evaluation

Next to the speed score zone in the Transcy app dashboard, we’ve added the social proof evaluation section. The social proof score gives you an idea of how well you apply social proof (for example, testimonials and product reviews) across your site.

Having a good social proof ranking will help you level up your conversion rate.
Improve social proof score now with Ali Reviews.

We recommend using Ali Reviews – the most popular Product Reviews app on the Shopify app store. With Ali Reviews, you can collect and showcase your best reviews across your store to build trust and level up conversion rates.
The good news is that thanks to the full integration between Transcy and Ali Reviews, you can now easily translate any of your product reviews into different languages. Explore all Ali Reviews’ features here.

The immense opportunity for Shopify e-commerce merchants to grow online sales has always been expansive. It is an indisputable fact that one of the best ways to keep your business fiercely competitive over direct competitors is to go global.

Transcy integrated with Ali Reviews

Today’s news is exciting: the two biggest FireApps products have a new collaboration! Transcy has officially integrated with Ali Reviews to make it easier to translate your Shopify store review widget content, gain trust, and build strong social proof in order to reach a larger global audience.

Ali Reviews – Top reviews solution package can assist your store to collect and display reviews, as well as push them on social media in a variety of beautiful ways.

Today, we’ll go over some specifics and explain how Transcy collaborates with Ali Reviews to translate review content into specific languages.

1. First and foremost, you must ensure that Ali Reviews is installed in a single step in your Shopify store.

2. Next, you have to set-up Transcy

To translate the review contents on the Ali Reviews widget, you must have a language selector (switcher) and multiple language translations on your store. Then, using the switcher, your customers can view your entire website, including the review content, in the language of their choice.

The following guide can show you how to set-up Transcy easier: Transcy integrates with Ali Reviews.

3. How does Ali Reviews work on your review widget?

Your store needs to enable Ali Reviews widgets and already imported reviews for your store. Don’t forget that there are 2 types of translation on review widgets: basic and advanced. What is that?

  • Basic translation: this allows you to auto-translate your review widgets without the ability to customize the translation of the primary contents based on your preferences.
  • Advanced translation: automatically translate your review widgets and also allows you to change the basic translation to a better one that you prefer.

And you can only EDIT/MANAGE your review widget content with the Advanced translation.

We hope it works well with your store and that you will stay tuned for the next version!

Activate Transcy Switcher by Theme editor on your store

Today, we’re so happy to release a new version of Transcy with advanced features that help your Shopify store increase conversion and run smoothly.

First, Transcy officially unlocks a new Theme Editor for Switchers. All front-end features (including Switcher) must be enabled in your current theme’s settings for Online Store 2.0 to be activated by the recent Shopify update.

App embed blocks (part of Shopify theme app extensions) allow you to incorporate app functionality into your theme. App embed blocks, for example, can be product reviews, prices, ratings, or interactive 3D models of products. The Shopify theme editor allows you to add, remove, preview, reposition, and customize app blocks.

Transcy Switchers will not be visible to your customers unless you activate the Transcy embed block in your current theme settings.

By following the instructions, you can now enable it quickly and easily in just a few steps: How to activate Transcy Switcher on your store through Theme Editor.

Furthermore, “Switch Improvement” is one of the most important sections. To make your store stand out, we created more Switcher templates as well as a list style for each setting category.
