This is an easy Product Countdown WordPress Plugin for WooCommerce.
With a countdown displaying on your products you create something like a scarcity mentality in people. It can create a feeling of fear, anxiety and maybe desperation just because they see that the price will rise in a specific period. It also make someone think that s/he has got only one shot right now. Buying a product then relieves much of the pressure (and the feeling of fear).
“What Does It Do?”The Product Countdown WordPress Plugin is the most powerful scarcity plugin ever created for WooCommerce. With just a few clicks you can create scarcity-based countdown-timers when a WooCommerce product is on sale.
“How Does It Work?”
“What Can I Do With It?”
- Add a popup-window fixed to the top
- OR add a popup-window fixed to the bottom of the page
- OR add a shortcode directly in the content of a post, page or custom post type (Learn more about this by reading question 10 on the Product Countdown WordPress Plugin FAQ page)
- Add the current sales price or/and the current items in stock in the message besides the counter
- Select a fade in position (from top) where the popup-window is then faded-in (for creating attention)
- Choose your own background color
- Choose your own font color
- Custom CSS for every single countdown
- Global CSS setting for every countdown
- Action that should be performed after the countdown has expired: Send an email or redirect to another page. (Note: there are some limitations when sending an email. Read more in question 8 on the Product Countdown WordPress Plugin FAQ page)
