Countdown popup

The Countdown creates a sense of urgency with a timer that counts down to the end of a promotion. You can link to your promotional page (such as a sale collection) and collect customer emails with the signup form.

Newsletter subscribers are added to your "accepts marketing" Customers list. You can learn more in Shopify's guides to Email subscriber list management and Using Shopify Email for email marketing article.
