ABOUT StoryBlok

Storyblok is a user-friendly and powerful headless CMS.

What sets Storyblok apart from other headless CMSs is it’s ability to have a true data hierarchy. Most headless content management systems lack this ability and give you data in a flat data structure.

In 2022, Builtwith.com shows that StoryBlok had over 1000+ active websites worldwide. Serving popular brands like, Marco-Polo, Adidas, and Pizza Hut.


StoryBlok is one of the few headless CMS that claim to support China. Because StoryBlok itself is not compliant with China’s laws and regulations, they must rely on a 3rd party vendor to access Chinese CDNs. As a result, the price is passed down to StoryBlok users.

If you want to use StoryBlok’s China service, you will be looking at a minimum of $50,000, just to access their Chinese partner’s CDNs.

If you are not paying for it’s premium service, your StoryBlok hosted content will not work in China. This is because StoryBlok does not have its own servers or CDNs in China.

Most websites built with StoryBlok’s headless CMS either won’t open or are extremely slow in China. As an example, below shows StoryBlok’s access speed in China for one of its Enterprise users, the popular fashion brand Marc-o Polo.
