Countdown Timer

What is a Countdown Timer?

A countdown timer allows you to count down to a specific date and hour in your campaigns.

Countdown timer is compatible with all campaign types and positions, including SleekBars.

Countdown timers work perfectly on desktop and mobile campaigns, as well as in your campaign’s Teaser and Success Step.

2. Style your countdown timer as you wish—change the font, font size, text alignment, color, and much more.

3. Adjust the timer according to your timezone and language.

Countdown Timer Best Practices

Countdown timer is ideal for driving urgency in your campaigns, especially for your limited-time sales and offers.

You can also consider counting down to a big day, such as a new season, an upcoming product launch, or your Black Friday sale.

With a countdown timer, you can provide delivery information on your store, and let your customers know when they should expect their items, if they place an order today.
