Use this module to convey time sensitivity and express scarcity to customers.
The module is quite specific in nature and will work best on PDP’s or Brand pages and pages with limited time product offers. It is often used to capture attention and urge customers to sign up for an event or avail themselves of a time limited offer. The module will usually feature a CTA.
The main function of the module header and text should generally be to lead the customer to the CTA and as such it should be kept short and to the point.
