About the Developer

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tight Quick and painless. There was a little issue with the date configuration, had to set one day behind today for it to work. Maybe cron just hadn't picked it up yet, and I was impatient. Implementation is nice, and worked fine with our custom theme without anything but small css mods. December 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it says This extension does exactly what it says. Installation was blindingly easy. Would be nice if we could have triggers for setting a new timer once one has finished. Easy to customise the timer style. Some jiggling required with custom themes and widgets but overall great. September 4, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Useless There is absolutely no documentation with this extension. There is just a very short readme file that basically says copy the files to your server then "To configure the extension, navigate to Promotions > Countdown Timers. Here you can add/edit/delete different countdowns. The conditions are the same as in Catalog price rules." Is the extent of the instructions. There is no explanation as to what any of the many options mean and no examples on how to create a countdown timer. Waste of money is my conclusion, wish I could get a refund :( July 26, 2013
Rated 0 out of 5 by I played with it for a while and noticed that it's a perfect way to promote your time-limited discounts. People see that not much time left and purchase, purchase, purchase))) Great, thank you guys. August 16, 2012
Rated 0 out of 5 by It would be great if this extension had an TURN PRODUCT ON/OFF time feature. To bad this is not implemented. June 27, 2012
