Sales Countdown Features

Set Up Sales Between Two Specific Dates and Time

Sale Countdown allows you to pick a time. This is really heplful for running flash sales like happy hours, deals of the day (Wow Wednesdays, Tipsy Thursdays), prime time specials, lunch hour deals and more.

Run a Countdown Timer to rush Shoppers

Most shoppers wait until the last few hours to make their purchase. In fact a typical sales graph shows that 90% of sales happen on the last day. It’s when the fear of missing out is at its peak. Your job is to make this insight into buyer psyche. Setting up countdown timers on the product page to remind shoppers about the deadline, you’ll be surprised by the power of a subtle reminder.

Set up a counter bar to show the real-time stock status

Don’t tell your visitors the number of items left in stock, show them. A counter bar shows the real time stock status and gives people a convicing reason to hurry up. It’s persuasive and moves as more and more people buy. Similar to Amazon’s counter bar on daily deals that says ‘x% of deal claimed’, it gives you the power to use scarcity!

Create conditions to customize campaignn

Condition builder allows you to create your conditions to customize campaigns. It makes the experience of using Sales Countdown hassle-free. No need to visit individual product pages to set up campaigns. Choose from 4 convenient rules to customize your campaigns. Set up campaigns: On certain hand-picked products, or all products in a specified product category, or chosen product type or only on products under or above a certain price point.

Maximize conversions through Smart Events

Increase discounts when the campaign expiry time is close. Or increase the prices of products when remaining stock is little. Or increase total units when few items are left in stock. You can even use Events to offer Early Bird Discounts (limit discounts to the first buyers).

Frontend Deal Pages

List all your deals on a single page so that shoppers can discover and browse them easily. They’ll no longer have to search for good deals and offers in your store. You can choose from a well-presented grid and list format to display your deals. List all your Christmas sale or Black Friday offers on one page during the promotion season. Also, show countdown timers and scarcity bar on this special curated page.
