Steps to add Countdown Timer

Follow the step by step instruction and create a countdown timer for your Shopify Store to increase conversion and productivity.

Note: I have attached step wise screenshots. Please follow them if needed.

Step 1: Open Shopify store Admin.

Step 2: Once you have logged in, click on “Online Store” located in left sidebar of your Shopify store Admin

Step 3: Click on “Actions” button in your top right corner to customize template file.

Step 4: Click "Edit Code" or "Edit HTML/CSS" to navigate to Shopify back-end.

Step 5: Click on “Themes” and the select “product.liquid” template.

Step 6: If “product.liquid” template says "The contents of the product.liquid template can be found in /sections/product-template.liquid" then click"Sections" and then click "product-template.liquid", otherwise stay on “product.liquid” template page.

Step 7: Press “Control+F”, search for “addtocart” and locate the end of your form (</form>)

Step 8: Paste the below code, starting at the end of form.
