How do we set id in a transaction timer?

PromoFeatures May 24, 2020

id in the transaction timer must be a unique string or number for each email, there is a "merge tag" in the mailchimp see here, for example, we can take such a tag *| EMAIL |* and set it to the id of the timer ?id=*| EMAIL |*

How do I add a responsive countdown timer to MailChimp?

It is necessary to make sure that the width of the counter does not exceed the width of the email letter. This can be done with css code. You indicate the counter maximum width and width 100%. For example style = "max-width: 500px; width: 100%;"

Where do you need to add this?

In the embedded code of the counter. For example, the width of the counter is 400px and the initial width of the email letter is 600px, as you can see, the width of the letter is greater than the width of the counter; therefore, add <img src = "_counter_link_" style = "max-width: 400px; width: 100%;" />. If the width of the counter is greater than the width of the letter, then just write in the code <img src = "_counter_link_" style = "width: 100%;" />
