How to add a pop-up with timer to your Shopify thank you page
The Pop-Up with Timer feature lets you create a special, time-sensitive offer for customers who have just completed a purchase.
Some benefits of adding this section are:
Research has shown that limited-time offers are based on a psychological phenomenon known as “fear of missing out” (FOMO) in which refers to the anxiety one may get not being able to experience the thrilling occurrence elsewhere.
It can be utilized as an effective tool to test a new product or service you’re hoping to roll out permanently. If it's a hit on the pop-up it is very likely you can push it as a normal purchase too.
Offering daily deals on your website helps your customers see that your site is a place where a bargain can be found.
