Please note: This is an advanced topic. If you are not sure what URL or UTM parameters are, or how to use them, we would recommend that you keep your Countdown Hero funnel simple with a simple timer page and do not attempt to add extra pages and complexity into your countdown campaign.

In some cases, you might want to add your Countdown Hero timer to both your Sales/Offer Page and also the on the next Checkout Page/ Checkout Cart to keep the urgency high.

Due to limitations on a number of page-builders, this isn't always possible, however here's what to look out for in order to get this set up:

(DISCLAIMER: To do this, you'll need a 'Countdown Hero - Pro' account)

As you know, Countdown Hero requires an email address to be present in the URL bar in order to 'unlock' page access for a particular subscriber, which typically gets merged in at the point of the opt-in or clicking the links in your emails.

Normally, when you click the button on the sales page to go to the checkout cart, all of the URL parameters are left behind, meaning that the page will appear locked (404'd) for any users as they click that button.

Because of that, the only major requirement is that the buttons on your sales pages can also pass the URL parameters through to the checkout page.

(In case it helps, we use Convertri as our page builder, though you may need to confirm that this is also possible with the support team for your page builder, in case it's not a 'Google-able' answer)

^^ That way you'll be able to add a countdown onto your checkout page too.

NOTE: If this is not supported by your page builder, you may be able to use Option B (see below) to add custom code to your page that will enable this.

Equally, if you'd prefer to send your subscribers directly to the checkout page without the countdown timer, you can just use your normal checkout page URL on that button and that will work as normal.

Option B - Add A Custom Script To Your Page:

If your page builder doesn't support the passing of URL parameters to the next page, you may be able to manually add this functionality by adding this script onto your pages instead:

$( document ).ready(function() {

this.href +=;


An alternate script for Kajabi users:

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
    // Function to handle button click
    function handleButtonClick(event) {
        var button =;
        var nextPageUrl = button.href;
        var currentParams =;
        if (currentParams !== '') {
            nextPageUrl += (nextPageUrl.indexOf('?') !== -1 ? '&' : '?') + currentParams;
        button.href = nextPageUrl;

    // Get all buttons on the page
    var buttons = document.querySelectorAll('a.k-button');

    // Add click event listener to each button
    buttons.forEach(function(button) {
        button.addEventListener('click', handleButtonClick);

IMPORTANT NOTE: Whilst this method is recommended in instances where a page builder can't naturally pass these URL/ Query String Parameters, this custom code is not provided by Countdown Hero, which means that our support team are unable to offer support or guidance when using this (or any other) custom code. You will instead need to contact the support team at your page builder for more information.

Quick-Start Implementation Checklist:

If your page-builder DOES allow you to pass the URL parameters through to the next page, follow these steps;

  1. Add the Checkout Cart as a page inside your Countdown Hero settings.

  2. Paste the Redirect URL of the Checkout Cart as the button links on your Sales/Offer page.

    (IMPORTANT: You'll also want to remove the < /[EMAIL] > section from this URL because the button will pass this information through itself and adding this twice will break the countdown)

  3. Set up your buttons to pass the URL parameters through to the next page.

  4. Add the Countdown Hero Code onto your Checkout Cart.
