The site banner doesn’t appear on my site

Checkout Countdown’s Site Banner Works with any theme that doesn’t use a **fixed header*. The fixed header takes over the space. If you have a Fixed Header than you can use the Shortcode [cc-countdown] or Checkout and Cart Notices.

Can it clear the customer cart?

The Pro version allows you to clear the customer cart once the countdown has finished.


Excellent plugin
