Really have to give kudos to this app. It set up countdowns that work perfectly, really quickly and easily. Used it for both product page and banner styles; love that it can match your site fonts and colors. Bonus is that they don’t invade your customer information files like some similar apps.



Best countdown timer on Shopify! Fits seemlessly with the web design and very easy to design and edit. The team are very helpful and responsive if you need support.
Thanks so much 🙂
