  1. Good day,
    I'm looking for a retention popup for my ecommerce website.
    I feel like Ninja Popup does the trick, but I have a couple of questions:
    - I did not understand the ninja popup prices: is it $ 26 in fixed costs for an unlimited duration of the plugin?
    - Can we configure a very specific targeting of the popup ad with Ninja Popup, e.g. B. the display only on certain pages after X minutes on the page? What targeting options does the plug-in offer?
    - What are the differences (+/-) to OptinMonster? Do you recommend OptinMonster for pop-in storage?

    Je vous remercie par avance.

    1. Good day,

      Yes, we use OptinMonster and it gives very good results.

  2. Hello and thanks for this article, the plugin list is really great. I would like to know how to offer a free guide to a popup such as: Hi, I am offering 7 free tips to help you make your dreams come true.
    1 I want these tips
    2 no thanks

    Once the visitor clicks 1 I want these tips and the form menu will come up.
    Many thanks for your help

    1. Use OptinMonster

  3. How do I configure the ITRO popup plugin? Do you have tutorials? Thanks in advance.

    1. Good day,

      No, sorry, we don't have it.

  4. Good day,
    I'm looking for a plugin that will open a popup with a mandatory email request from the start, without being able to close the popup (without a cross) and be linked to Mailchimp. Never found! Any ideas ?


    1. Good day,

      In the free plugin, I doubt you can find an effective plugin for this.

  5. Good day,
    I'm currently using Popup Maker, but when the visitor enters their details in the popup, it doesn't automatically close and they have to click the close cross.
    Which plugin has this function integrated?

    Many Thanks,

  6. Hello

    Thank you for your article.

    Which plugin was used to call exits? Let me explain:
    If a visitor wants to leave the blog, he dangerously approaches the cross in the upper right corner (i.e. without clicking) a popup appears to offer him free training, for example.


    1. Good evening Guillaume,

      I recommend NINJA POPOP on Codecanyon

  7. Hello,

    Thank you Thierry for this article. I happened to be trying out plugins to set up popups when I came across your website.

    I'm going to try Optin Revolution, which everyone seems to recommend.


    1. Good day,

      You are welcome to help.

  8. Thank you for this list of extensions! Personally, I've been using XYZ LightBox up until then, but the final rendering isn't great ... I'll go with Optin Revolution I think and if the rendering still doesn't satisfy me I would go for a premium extension .

    Hope you read and goodbye
