?? Add free shipping as part of a discount coupon???
the option is located on the ‘Actions’ tab of coupons made under ‘Shopping Cart Price Rules’ . However, for it to actually work you also need to enable free shipping in system > configuration > shipping methods.
The minimum for the free shipping can be set to anything (i have it set at Â£999,999,999, so its essentially disabled), but it needs to be enabled before free delivery coupons will work .
hope this helps! was hours before i figured this out
