Kick it off! Prepare your customers for your biggest sale ever! πŸ›οΈ

With the Kickoff countdown you make it clear to your customers at a glance that you will soon have a (large) offer. Customers will no longer wonder when there is a sale , does this shop have a black friday ? Does this shop have a Sinterklaas/Christmas promotion? You decide, you win.

Installation πŸ› οΈ


To install this add-on, an implementation from a developer is required . So it may take a while before the add-on is active. Simply click on " Request add-on " and let Plus+ notify our development heroes. πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ

After clicking " Request Add-on ", you would be redirected to " My Plus+ Add-ons " page. You will also see the following message appear in the top right corner of the dashboard.


Add-on settings/overview βš™οΈ


After installation you will see that the add-on is in your overview , including installation date and status.
With this add-on, the status would first be "Pending" , this is because the developers would first have to add the code to your webshop. As soon as the developers are working on this you should see the status change to "Pending".


If the developers have added the code, this status will be set to "inactive" , so you can set it up properly and then activate it! βœ…


To activate the add-on, click on the hamburger menu and choose "activate". Prefer to see a preview in test mode first ? Which can. Click " Activate in preview mode" and the add-on would be visible only to you. So not for the customers !
