The Scarcity Shopify app creates a sense of urgency by letting you add a timer to the cart drawer, cart page or drawer, and product pages. You can pick a flipping digits timer or a textual one.
Scarcity: Countdown Cart Timer allows you to insert a timer to all your pages or set it up for a specific product. The app offers only one position to place the timer on product pages—above the add-to-cart button.
Besides highlighting different sales promotions with a countdown, you can also use a timer for reserving items in the cart. With the help of the app, you can create a timer that notifies a shopper about how long the cart is reserved so that they feel motivated to finish the purchase. If a customer runs out of indicated time, the cart is automatically deleted.
Scarcity: Countdown Cart Timer gives you various tools to customize your timer widgets. You can change the text, design, and color of your timers according to the style of your store or a particular promotion. The app also lets you configure the duration of each of your timer widgets.
The Scarcity app offers a 7-day free trial and two pricing plans. The pay-as-you-go plan is designed for growing stores and is free to install. You are to pay 25 cents per 100 unique impressions of the countdown timer, up to a maximum of $5 per month. The Basic plan costs $2.99 per month. If, based on your store’s traffic data, you expect to have more than 2,000 impressions per month, then you should go with Basic.
Any plan includes multiple timer types that are compatible with all cart types and Shopify themes. You also get access to support that can assist you with possible theme adjustments or other issues.
