Very nice plugin. Free version does the work and paid version is not expensive and adds interesting functions. Very customizable : you can build a popup with or without overlay, a banner, a small or big popup… More options in the free version than much others. Thanks to the dev !

i tried some popular ones and guess what – they fail to work in my peculiar website, not to mention some of them are downright horrible in design and function (like – start by registering in our spammy page OR just freezes the whole thing for a few seconds and baaaam a ton of tasteless presets and options of no use).and this one’s just perfect, does what advertised in a most tidy way imaginable. bravo!!!

it is easy to use. I needed a popup which opens when clicking a text link. The paid version is perfect for my needs for a really fair price.

Easy to use, takes only a few minutes to setup a popup. Free version is enough for a small job. I use it to promote some items in my shop.
