This article is an introduction to Countdown Cart. Even though this free app is multi-featured, it's super easy to use and just takes less than 2 minutes to set up. Let's get started.


Once you installed the app, immediately, you get 3 widgets including Countdown Timer, Stock Countdownand Social Proof on all of your product pages as you can see in the screenshot below:


Countdown Cart's elements


Basically, you can customize all the elements of these widgets, such as:


  • Turn on/off any widgets.
  • Freely change their positions.
  • Edit text.
  • Change font.
  • Change theme.
  • Change icon.


In this article, you will be wandered through basic modules of Sales Pop. However, before we get started, you must know there will be no adjustable data features on Shopify anymore. Adjustable data features used to be a highly effective method to create urgency and scarcity for your store. Nevertheless, since the Shopify's requirement to use real data instead of made-up one, the feature was left out. In other words, with Countdown Cart for Shopify, merchants can only show the real stock quantity and real data of views, add-to-cart, and purchases on your storefront.


Now let's take a deeper look on each of the feature.


1. Social Proof: shows, in real time, the number of visitors who have viewed your products and how many of the product items were sold.
