When running a business, merchants always research and find out as many methods as possible to sell their products. They might use a sense of urgency to make shoppers come to a quicker decision on an order they are considering. Using countdown timers will take effect then.

The Countdown element helps you to limit the period of time that shoppers can make a purchase with the sale price. This could be a countdown until the end of a sales-off season, or for a specific offer such as a flash sale.
