Q: My popup is not showing up! Why?

A1: By default popups are showing up only when user tries to exit your website.

To simulate this action go to your website, wait for it to load and then move the mouse cursor slowly over the browser address bar. This will trigger Exit Intent mechanism.

Also, check display frequency settings from Installation step. By default is set to Once per day. This means the popup will show only once per day per user.

A2: Check if your campaign is published. Unpublished popups will not load. Also, publishing might take couple of seconds so please wait at least 10 seconds before you try it on your website.

A3: Check if campaign has ended. Ended campaigns will not initiate popups.

Q: I don't have any subscribers to my popup

A1: Usually the conversion rate it's only 5%, so don't expect many users to subscribe. To improve conversion rate, try to make your campaign look more appealing to your customers.

A2: Before launching any campaign, do a test with your email address to see if the system works.
