Our compliments to Damian and his team for the quality of this plugin and their support. We were looking for a popup that triggers based on geo targeting rules and WP Popups is the only one we found that allows us to target countries, cities, regions and zip codes reliably. Since the introduction of the new Gutenberg templates, designing great looking popups has become really easy. We highly recommend WP Popups.
