About Countdown Sticker Ads

The Countdown Sticker Interactive Add-on allows you to add a timer to your video ad to catch your audience's attention and create a feeling of urgency.

A Countdown Sticker will appear in the ads for the entire time, and can't be closed before the ad is finished playing. Once the Countdown Sticker appears within the ad, it'll display the amount of time left in DAYS-HOURS-MINUTES (if the remaining time is more than 72 hours) or HOURS-MINUTES-SECONDS (if the remaining time is less than 72 hours).

When the viewers click on the Countdown Sticker, they will be redirected to the landing page you provided. You can adjust the size and position of your Sticker on TikTok Ads Manager.
