Free shipping is a great way to encourage customers to spend more. For example, if you offer free shipping on orders over $50 a customer who was going to spend $40 might add on a few more items. To offer the free shipping method it must be added to a Shipping Zone and you can add it to as many Shipping Zones as you like. Follow this procedure:
Go to: SC Commerce > Settings > Shipping.
Select a Shipping Zone, Click Edit
Click Add Shipping Method and a modal will display. Select Free Shipping from the dropdown and Add shipping method.
Select Free Shipping in the row you wish to define and select Edit.
This takes you to a different screen to configure the free shipping method for that specific shipping zone.
Enter a Title that displays to customers in checkout.
Open the dropdown next to Free Shipping Requires…
If you have select any of the options that include a minimum amount, enter a Minimum Order Amount.
Finally, if you’ve selected any of the options that include a minimum amount, you can choose to apply this amount rule before or after coupon discounts have been applied.
1. Create a coupon (this procedure is described in more detail on the Coupons page)
2. Enable free shipping for coupons.
Customers can now use the coupon to get free shipping.
