Add a Countdown Timer to your Email

How it works?

The countdown clock is an animated GIF image that dynamically generated by the server in real-time, each and every time the image is requested (ie. when a subscriber opens the email). So if a recipient opens the email a daily basis (or even every second), they’ll see an updated image each time. GIF images are supported in all email clients including mobile, wherever images are enabled. The exception to this is Desktop Outlook 2007+, which will show only a static image of the timer. However, this image will be accurate at the time the user opens the email. Here is the client support:

Client Displays Image Counts down
Thunderbird YES YES
Outlook 02/03 YES YES
Outlook 07/10/13 YES NO*
Outlook 2011 YES YES
Apple Mail YES YES
iPhone YES YES
Android YES YES

* Displays first frame of animated GIF only.

Works on mobile

Countdown Timer displays perfectly in your mobile-friendly version of the email. So have fun designing emails enhanced with countdown timers that look great across all devices!
