Do you want to create urgency and fuel FOMO so that your sales page visitors are compelled to “Buy Now”? Meet the most customizable countdown timer on the market—where robust functionality meets full creative control.

In this help article, we’ll go through the steps of adding and customizing a fixed countdown timer to a Flodesk Checkout Sales Page. To learn how to work with countdown timers in email, read

How to add a countdown timer block to your Sales page

Step 1. In your Flodesk account, create a new Checkout or open an existing one to edit it

Step 2. In the sales page builder, click the Add block button

Step 2. On the Add a block modal, click the Countdown category, and select one of the countdown timer block templates (banner style or standard).

How to customize your fixed countdown timer

Step 1. Once you selected the countdown timer you want to use, click on the Timer tab. Use the dropdowns to specify the end date, end time, and timezone your timer should countdown to.

Step 2. Under the Block tab, you can control what parts of the Countdown timer block you want to show in the email by toggling the following sections on/off:

  • Title

  • Description

  • Time units

  • Button

You can also use the controls to change the block’s background and spacing settings.

Note: some countdown templates also support adding a background image. You can upload your own image file or grab one from Unsplash or Giphy.

Step 3. To edit the font type, size, color of your countdown timer, click on any of the text elements to access the font editing options.

Pro tip: If you click the countdown box itself, you’ll see additional options to style the divider. There’s no stopping what you can create.

Step 4. Click the button element to style the button shape, fill color, border color, border thickness, and to edit the button font type, size, color.

Note: You can't edit the countdown timer button link. To maximize the chances of conversion, all buttons in your Sales Page (including the countdown timer button) automatically link to your Checkout Page.

And that’s it! 🙌

Customize the rest of your Sales page, and experience the difference a countdown timer makes in boosting sales for your limited-time offers.


To add a countdown timer to your Sales page that counts down to a specific date and time, do the following:

  • In the Sales page builder, click the Add block button and pick a countdown timer under the Countdown block category

  • Under the Timer tab, set the end date, end time, and timezone for your countdown timer

  • Customize the rest of the countdown block with your brand colors, fonts, shapes, and more!
