    here is what i do, hope you will understand me:


    1. i have a my own ebook and sales page for this product
    2. i have also review website about my product that is already ranked on spot 2 in google and this website links to my sales page. i get 6,300 visitors per week for review site.
    3. my sales page get about 1300 visitors per week. so conversion rate for review site is 20%
    4. then 130 visitors click "order now" button. so its 10%
    5. and finally i get 3-7 sales per week. so its 3-6 % the strange thing is that, sometimes i can get 2-3 sales per day, then few days is nothing - 0 sales.

    i use paypal to get payments. Do you think paypal can be a reason? and i recive sales only from peoples who have already papal accounts?

    i wanted other payment gateway service, but nobody want to approve my service, because its high-risk service. Personally i wouldnt say that.

    i have looked also at high-risk payment processor, but they want only registered business.

    I need some advices

    Well, surely it's not because of paypal, because it's most trusted and most used payment method.
    CR really depends on audience you are targeting and price.
    3-6% for sales is good, so I would just try to bring more traffic

    What do you set the timer to? A couple of days or hours?

    here is an update
    after placing the countdown time with discounted price, i got 12 sales in a week (5-8 sales more then before)
    its really good result

    so putting the timer with discount is good way to increase conversion rate
