Creating the Promotion

To offer free shipping to customers after a specific amount spent, you will have to apply a promotion. For an in depth tutorial on creating promotions, view our Promotions and Rewards Points Guide.

For this example, we will be applying free shipping to any purchase over $35.00.

Create Product Group ‘Shipping’ and place all shipping options you wish to apply under this group. Grouping these items will ensure that each type of shipping gets applied to the discount.

Create a new promotion and title it ‘Free Shipping.’ Leave the starting and ending dates blank, this will cause the promotion to never expire. By default, the promotion will auto apply when applicable. This will mean that once the order exceeds $35.00 and shipping is added, the price of shipping will be adjusted to $0.00.
