Real time countdown timers are a staple on many ecommerce websites and have been proven to be effective at creating urgency and increasing sales. This customization puts you in control – you set the time frame (for example, customers have to order before 2pm EST), the days it appears, and what products it appears on. The customization will be styled to match your website’s design and automatically accounts for weekends and major US holidays.
What it does
This customization populates Product pages with a real-time countdown clock that shows the amount of time the customer has left to get same day shipping. We implement it according to your customization — you decide the time frame for shipping, what days it appears, and what (if any) message displays outside of the free shipping window. You can also choose which Products have this feature. The countdown clock is automated and doesn’t require you to update it or turn it on and off.

Frequently Asked Questions
I can only ship same day if orders come in by 3pm EST. What happens if a user orders by 3pm PT?
The timer counts down based on UTC time. If you live in EST, we simply set the time to countdown to a specific time UTC, with a -4 hour difference. That means that no matter where the user is located, the timer will countdown to the specified time EST. Any time zone can be accounted for, so that same day shipping can be promised based on your time zone, not that of the users.
Does this time take into account weekends or holidays?
Yes. The timer will switch to a generic message if it is a weekend or a national holiday.
