Why two separate plugins?
When we fist launched Sales Trigger , there was a Deal expiry trigger. Now the way it would work is that it would use native WooCommerce schedule feature to show counter. But the basic Sales scheduling feature of WooCommerce needed improvement :
1. One cannot automatically restart the sale
2. One cannot define specific time (Monday 9AM)
3. Process ran based of GMT time and not WordPress time
4. And other drawbacks
People would barely use this Deal Expiry Trigger because of amount of effort it took to restart the counters.
We understood the problem and came up with a full fledge urgency marketing tool which expanded on Deal expiry trigger to achieve different use cases.
Which one should you buy? Both 🙂
So it depends:
If you are looking to optimize your WooComemrce product page Sales Triggers is right choice for you. If you are looking to run urgency marketing campaigns with countdown timers Finale is best for you
