First you need to include the jQuery library, since ClassyPaypal is a plugin. You can download it from the jQuery website or link it directly from the Google CDN.

<script src="//"></script>

Secondly, you need to include the jQuery ClassyPaypal javascript, the CSS file and the required dependencies (jQuery knob and jQuery throttle plugins), which you can do it by adding the code below to your page.

<script src="js/jquery.classycountdown.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.knob.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.throttle.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery.classycountdown.min.css" />

Next, you create the HTML structure on which you want to trigger the plugin.

<div class="countdown"></div>

As the last step, you trigger the plugin on the element you just created. In this case, we trigger it on the element with the class countdown.

    theme: "flat-colors",
    end: $.now() + 10000
