Once you are ready, login to your WordPress dashboard and go to Templates -> Popups. Click the Add New button to create a new popup.
Give your popup template a name and click the CREATE TEMPLATE button.
Elementor offers tens of premade popup templates you can choose from. You can choose the one you like and click the Insert button to use it. If you want to create your popup from scratch, simply close the template library. In this article, we use a template.
Open the popup settings by clicking the gear icon on the bottom-left corner on the left panel. On the Layout block under the Settings tab, you can set the width of your popup as well as the height, position, and entrance animation.

Go to the Advanced tab to set the margin and the padding. From this tab, you can also make some advanced settings as shown in the image below.
Once done setting the popup, you can start editing the popup content just like when you are creating a page in Elementor. You can add any widget you like such as Countdown, Button, Form, and so on. If you are new to Elementor, you can read this article to learn how to use Elementor.

As we stated earlier, we will set the popup (notification) to appear after visitors scrolling half of the page they are visiting. Enable the On Scroll option. Set the direction to Down and the Within option to 50 percent. Click the NEXT button.
If you want to set some advanced rules, you can click the NEXT button. Otherwise, you can click the SAVE & CLOSE.
