Start and finish when you need themElfsight Countdown Timer is great for creating a countdown widget that will speed up visitors’ buying decision. Just set the date and time when it shall start and finish – the timer is ready. You can enter the current date or move the start to any date you need.
Tip: You can use delayed start if you need the timer to appear on your site on a planned date and want to do it in advance. For this simply enter a required date in Start time box.
Two scenarios on timer completingIt’s also up to you, what will happen to the timer on your website after the time runs out. Our countdown widget offers you two options – the timer can simply vanish from the page, or it can be replaced by any message, which you enter in the widget settings.
Driving sales with a call-to-actionWith countdown timer by Elfsight, you have an option to show a message above the countdown widget. Create a call-to-action, which will bring more urgency, make your visitors excited and drive them to shop on your site right now.
Flexible timer periodYou can set your countdown clock for any duration by choosing required units and their value. Elfsight Countdown Timer includes days, hours, minutes, and seconds. You can show them all or hide the units that you don’t use in your timer.
Tip: You can express any time duration using a preferred unit. For example, 2 days may show as 48 hours. In case you set time in days and then hide them, the time will be automatically re-calculated and shown in hours.
Editable labels of time unitsFor each time unit, there’s a label that you can change to your taste. Edit the text of the label, for example, type time units in your language or shorten the words to letters. If you want a clean look of the countdown widget, you can hide the labels away and do without them.
Start and finish numbersTo demonstrate a limited availability of your items, show they are popular and get sold out quickly. For this you can use Elfsight Countdown Timer as a count, that will change the number with random intervals. Simply set two numbers – starting and finishing and the tool is ready to work.
Up and down count typesYou can use website countdown timer by Elfsight to create counts for your website that go up or down. If you want to show how the stock of your items decreases, then it will go from the bigger to the smaller number. Or if you want to show a growing number of sales, just switch the numbers around, and the count will go up from less to more.
Button for immediate purchaseAs soon as you get your client excited and afraid to miss the offer, direct them to the purchase page to make sure you won’t lose them.
