There are multiple options for what to display on your site after your Countdown Timer has hit 0 (or the target date).
- Display something
- Keep Timer
If you are using Countdown Timer to create urgency during purchase decision, you probably don't want to go in and manually reset your Timer every other day. You can automate this and choose to repeat the Timer every x days, weeks, months, or years.
Note: Countdown Timer also has built-in options to repeat the Timer on each page load or per visitor. Read more about these options, here.
2. Display something
When choosing the Display Something option, you can display any custom text and/or button after your Timer has completed.
Example use cases:
- You had a special promotion running and would like your site visitors to know that the special deal has now ended.
- You had a countdown to when a special item becomes available and you now want to link visitors to the page where they can buy the item, or take the payment straight from that page.
Take a payment:
If you'd like to take a payment for an item directly from your Countdown Timer, you can enable payments by going to Content > After Count > Button Type: Take a payment. Enter the product details and your PayPal account email address to complete setup. Your site visitors will be able to send you a payment has soon as the Timer has completed.
3. Keep Timer
The third option is to simply keep the Timer on your site. The Timer will stop counting and the user will see the 0's or the Target Number.
