    first decide the reason of your site, why is it slow

    there are 3 reasons for a site to be slow

    1- slow server
    2- excess database queries
    3- too many external javascripts in header

    Load time 10 seconds... This is REALLY slow... In most cases these could be BIG images (in MB's), big javascript codes and also if there are thousands of online members in the same time and everybody tries to get a result from a query (let's say you have a MySQL database and people login and add something for example!) and this could also be a reason! ;)

    Load time matters not only due to slow server but also design of site. Check your html, excess java script or plug ins. You can download y slow plug in, where you can see the reasons of your higher load time.

    You're not really giving anything to work with, so I can't give specific advice. However, it sounds like 2.4MB is the approximate size of each page, so first I would look at optimising the front end of the site. Use Chrome as the developer tools are awesome and Google Page Speed extension also integrates nicely. This will help you identify areas for optimisation (such as which images and even provide a sample of optimised ones), slowest loading files, etc.

    Only once you've optimised the front-end as much as you can would it be worth looking at the "backend".

    Good luck.

    I have a few question, if you can answer them I'll give you a solution.

    1. What software does your ecommerce website run?
    2. Who is your host/ what is your server configuration?
    3. What web server are you running?
    4. Do you have a VPS, shared hosting or dedicated server?
    5. Do you know the connection speed of the server?

    too many to mention..
    however, can you post the platforms, frameworks, languages, backend technologies, databases of your ecommerce?
