Adding a delay to your popup

Lisa Fockens Updated by Lisa Fockens

Four of the popup triggers available in the Wisepops builder can be combined with a delay:

  • Landing
  • Exit
  • Scroll
  • Custom event

There are two types of delays:

  • Time delay: In this case, we wait for the number of seconds you set before displaying your popup.
  • Page delay: In this case, we don’t display the popup until a visitor has visited a specified number of pages

Here are a few examples.

Fire a popup on the second page viewed

Fire a popup when the user has been on the page more than ten seconds

Note: If the user navigates to a new page before the end of the delay, we reset the delay. For example, a delay of 10 seconds was set. After 7 seconds on page A, the user opens page B. She will see the popup after 10 seconds on page B.

Fire a popup when the user exits after visiting three pages or spending more than 15 seconds on the same page
