Every Online Store uses Discount Offers to attract new customers or retain existing ones. But how do you inform your customers about the offer? News-letters might not be the answer. It is better to use countdown for WordPress websites. In fact, add a timer at the top of the product page itself which will keep count of every second before your discount deal runs out.
Countdown For WordPress
Imagine that its Christmas time and you want to offer a discount deal to your customers. Let’s include a timer that reminds your buyers of the time remaining before the deal runs out.
To add the timer you need Elementor and Essential Add-ons for Elementor.
You can get clear documentation on how to add Elementor and Essential Add-ons to your WordPress website on their official website.
Create A Timer for Your Online Store
Open your WordPress Dashboard and enter the Elementor Builder Interface. From the side panel, select EA CountDown element.
Drop it inside the Blank Canvas area and the customization options will automatically appear in the side panel. But, if it doesn’t appear, simply click over the EA CountDown element that you just dropped inside the Elementor interface.
First, you need to specify the time until which you want to offer a discount. Head over to the side panel>Content.
Now, click on the Countdown Due Date field to open the pop-up that you see above.
- Use the middle and side arrows to specify a certain date. Pick a Month and a Year.
- Use the boxes to specify the exact hour, minute and second in time.
As soon as you specify the date and time, it will be updated inside the Elementor Interface. Okay, so we are done with half of the work.
Now head over to the Content Settings Tab. From the first option pick a Countdown style for the element. The EA Countdown uses separate areas to display Days, Hours, Minutes and Seconds. Inside the Content Settings Tab, you will see 4 toggle buttons to turn on/off any of the measurement units.
Change the Labels On The Timer
Similarly, under each toggle bar, you will see text fields. Use them to change the label of the Countdown. There are four labels-Days, Hours, Minutes and Seconds. The labels are given by default. But suppose you want to add the word ‘Remaining’ after every label text. Just click on the label text field and add the word Remaining.
Now you might want to change the color and typography. Head over to the Style section> Color and Typography.
Once you are happy with the design of the Countdown box, hit Publish.
Every Essential Addon element contains its customization options inside the same side panel as any other Elementor element. However, the difference lies in the slight difference between the available customization options.
