“The best countdown timer we tested and we have tested lots of them. Plus, great support.”
mcguffin 5 stars

“This countdown plugin does exactly what you expect. And it does so in an easy and elegant way. I've tried other countdown plugins, and this is by far the most user-friendly one. I've been able to choose my own colours, shapes and units. I contacted the developer with some minor issues and his response was fast and to the point. It was well worth paying for it!”
maria_fernandez 5 stars

“incredibly easy and out of the box great designs to choose from. It was easy to modify the colors to match design of the website. Perfect widget! Highly recommend.”

Visual Builder

Just drag the sliders, pick a color, choose a due date, and presto, you've created your first Soon Counter. It's really as easy as that, save your counter and use it on any WordPress page.

15+ Preset Templates

Soon ships with 15 unique and responsive counter templates. You can use them as is, or tweak them to fit your style. All templates can be viewed on the Soon Live Preview landing page.


Soon is responsive and works on a wide range of modern mobile, tablet and desktop browsers. Soon will automatically measure the available space of the parent container and resize the different counters accordingly.

3 Clock Faces

Soon contains 3 different clock faces. Flip, Matrix and Text. Each face has it's own animations and customization options. Combined with the two visual styles there's bound to be a configuration that suits your specific needs.

2 Progress Indicators

You can combine the 3 clock faces with 2 different progress visualisations. There's a circular and a fill visualiser which each have rich customization and animation options.


JavaScript's default timer will lag behind when it's active for longer time periods. Soon contains a correction algorithm to make sure each second actually is a second.

Duration Modes

Set duration mode to have Soon count down a fixed amount of minutes or seconds since page load. In day mode it will count to a certain time on a certain day of the week.

Server Time

Set server time to make Soon synchronize with the server.


You can configure Soon to count down towards a date or count up since a date. Useful for counting time since an event.

If no due date is set, Soon will render a Clock instead of a countdown. Perfect for testing if Soon has been setup correctly.

All content wrapped by the Soon shortcode will be automatically hidden till the clock runs out.

You can choose between hiding, redirecting, showing content, or running scripts once the timer hits zero.

Each face and visual has it's own animation options to make your counters look extra professional.

Still cool right?
Available for every counter type.


Visual Builder
Use the Visual Builder to build your own counters. Pick a preset or a blank canvas, select colours, counter types, fonts, sizes. Just copy and paste the resulting snippet and you're ready to roll.

All labels Soon uses below the counters are customisable to your language or liking.

Animations & Special Effects
All Soons counters are animated. For instance the text counter can be tweaked with different animation types like slide, roll, twirl and fade. On top of these animations Soon brings reflections to the table.

Soon scales to the available space around it. It's as simple as that. It does not matter where you place it, Soon will make sure it looks great.

JavaScript's default timer will lag behind when it's active for longer time periods. Soon contains a correction algorithm to make sure each second actually is a second.

There's three different clock faces to choose from. Of course you've got your basic Text style, but there's also the classic Flipper and as a bonus there's the Dot Matrix counter. All three faces can be animated in various ways and have all kinds of ways to make them match your sites look and feel.

Easily create an awesome circular counter. Use solid colours, gradients, define counter direction and set the offset, length and width of the ring. There's visual effects like glow and shadow plus the ring progress is animated.

Next to the ring you've got the option to select a background fill. This is sort of like a vertical, horizontal or diagonal progress bar. Animated and colours can be changed.

Due Modes
Soon comes with a wide range of countdown modes. Also, well tested support of timezones.

  • 2016—02-25 count down towards a date;
  • 2010—02-25 count up since a date;
  • in 2 hours count down a fixed amount of hours, minutes or seconds ;
  • at 12:30:15 count down repeatedly towards a time;
  • sunday at 10 count down repeatedly towards a time of day;

Pick between Year, Month, Week, Day, Hour, Minute, Seconds and Milliseconds. The cascade feature allows you to move values between groups, so you can for instance count the total number of seconds till next year.

Server Time
You can set Soon to use the server time to do it's calculations.
