Free Shipping Promotions

Free shipping can be offered as a promotion, with or without a coupon. A free shipping coupon — or voucher — can also be applied to “customer pick-up” orders where there is no shipping, so the order can complete the workflow by being invoiced and “shipped.”

Some shipping carrier configurations let you set a minimum order for free shipping. However, shopping cart price rules let you create complex conditions based on multiple product attributes, cart contents, and customer groups.

After you create a new price rule, it takes an hour or so for it to become available. Be sure to allow enough time for it to get into the system. Then, test the rule to make sure that it works correctly.
