This pro timer plugin for Divi comes with three pricing tiers:
The annual unlimited plan is $20 per year.
The single site lifetime plan is $59.
The unlimited site lifetime plan is $99.
It’s well worth purchasing the top tier as you never know when things will go up in price and it’s well worth the money to add this functionality to your Divi based sites.
My experience with this timer for the Divi theme builder
I think it’s great that this pro timer plugin for Divi has the option of a lifetime license, it’s very rare nowadays as small studios scramble for subscription-based revenue instead of letting you keep the plugin for life.
I have used this Divi plugin on two low traffic websites I own and saw an increase in conversions of up to 5%
I used the evergreen countdown timers this Divi plugin provides for a client’s launch and it was great it worked as advertised and worked well.
The client couldn’t get their head around the reason for using scarcity and even had me remove it altogether when one of his visitors said they couldn’t access the offer anymore!
The experiment worked and I got the data I needed before the Divi timer was pulled.
It dramatically increased conversions while it was on the Divi page (12% – 45%) and when the timer was pulled from the offer it converted at next to nothing (talking less than 1%).
Although it is nowhere near a fair test as the 45% conversion was after an email campaign to a small list of previous customers.
So yes in my eyes the test was a success (I have reasonable expectations) but in my client’s eyes, it was not a successful campaign (it didn’t make him a millionaire overnight) even though the revenue for his website was 15x for that month!
So that’s why I have no hesitation in recommending this Divi plugin.
Divi TP in action
The image above shows a pro timer for Divi in action on my website.
I use this Divi pro plugin to offer a discount on one of my rapid website build services where I build websites using the layouts that come with the Divi theme by using the show and hide functionality of timer pro I have two sections on the page.
One section shows if the pro timer is active and offers a 30% discount to the visitor with a link to Thrivecart that automatically applies a special coupon.
The other section shows no discount and doesn’t apply the coupon.
You can see the two sections below only one (the discount) is shown when the pro timer for Divi is active.
Divi TP usage
The module for Divi theme is inserted into a page the same way as any other Divi module, once it’s inserted into the Divi page it will be a blue block with “waiting for Countdown Start”
This just means it’s waiting for you to configure it in the settings.
The two tabs you need in Divi are the content tab (the settings of the timer) and the Design tab (the look of the timer on your page or WooCommerce product page).
The content tab will give you all the settings you need to set up the timer with the starting time, redirects or show and hide items on your page.
Divi TP Problems with caching
When setting up and testing your timer on a Divi page you might find the show and hide function doesn’t work, don’t panic it’s an issue with your caching plugin or the way your host is caching your Divi website.
This is all covered in the help documentation of the plugin with some simple fixes that should only take you a few minutes to sort out.
Conclusion – Is Divi TP worth it?
I just have to say that Nelson’s support is awesome I reached out to him a couple of times and received a response within a few hours.
Just for Nelson’s support, this product should receive the best rating.
The guys over at Pee-Aye Creative are very smart in that they saw a range of features that were missing from Divi’s timer module and added them.
It’s a Divi module upgrade you will wonder how you ever did without.
Very smart move and I hope it pays for them as I plan to use this in the future on a couple of projects.
If you use the Divi theme and you’re looking to emulate the pros with product launches and automated scarcity then this product will add much-needed features to the Divi builder countdown timer.
I haven’t tested the product on Divi child themes but I’d wager if there was a problem with the product support would fix it pretty sharpish.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Timer Pro to anyone looking to add scarcity to their WordPress page or WooCommerce product page running the Divi builder theme from Elegant themes. You might find other options but for Divi, this will be your best one.
