Brilliant Plugin & OUTSTANDING Support


So I searched everywhere for a good countdown plugin - I was willing to pay but unfortunately almost every "free" plugin gave practically no features for me to decide if I wanted to purchase or not. Then I found the free version of Waiting, loved the look of the countdown timers and the functionality, and decided to upgrade to premium. I had a very small issue which ended up being a plugin conflict - when I emailed for support, I was replied to instantaneously, and the issue was sorted for me within minutes - and it was 11pm at night for this guy!!! Seriously, amazing. If you want a countdown timer that actually works, go for this one. Won't let you down.



Exactly what I was looking for! Allows you to create both timers for a certain date out, as well as a pre-set amount of time when someone comes to your page. Also customizable. Awesome plugin! Will be donating to designer.
