Here you can make changes on the appearance of your bar. 

Bar Color Mode - choose between a solid colored bar or gradient. If you select gradient, you will see the gradient start, end and angle.

Bar Color - the color of the bar that you prefer.

Message Text Color - color of the text that appears inside the bar

Opacity - opacity of the bar's background color from 0 (transparent) to 100 (opaque) - Default is 100.

Drop Shadow - adds a drop shadow on your bar

Bar Text - the text you wish to show on your bar


Position - you can set where you wish to show the bar: top or bottom

Scroll Mode -  lets you select if the bar should scroll or float on the page

Show on Exit - this button allows you to enable/disable the bar from showing before the user leaves the page

Bar Trigger - you have options on when you wish the bar to appear: Instantly - at page load, After X seconds, after scroll %

Referring URL - there are times when you only wish to show the bar when the customer came from a specific URL. You may specify this here or leave it blank to allow any.


If you wish to add a countdown timer on your bar, you can definitely do this! There are 2 options for you: Evergreen and Date/Time.


This timer allows you to set the number of days, hours and minutes. When the timer ends, it resets. It adds some urgency and will cause many to take action but also gives the opportunity at a later date.

Once a visitor lands on the page it begins counting down from whatever it has been set. On initial visit, timer starts. Once the time expires FOR THAT VISITOR, it restarts the countdown for that visitor.

Date/Time countdown timer

This timer expires and you get to set the date and time. When the countdown timer ends, the user may be redirected to a specific URL if you specify it on the Expiry Redirect field. If you leave this field blank, nothing happens. 


If you haven't got the PRO feature yet, you should grab the opportunity NOW!

With the PRO version, you can remove branding on every bar you create. 

Remove Branding - this is the button that disables/enables the branding on every bar

Overlay URL and Title - you can overlay your bar on a different page and this is where you specify the URL and the title of the page.
