Configuring shopping cart price rules in Magento: Free shipping

16 November 2011

Free shipping when the subtotal is greater than €100

To configure your shopping cart rule, go to Promotions > Shopping Cart Price Rule. Click on ‘Add New Rule’ and start to fill in the general information. In the tab ‘Conditions’ you will have to configure that the subtotal should be above 100euro:

Conditions of a shopping cart price rule with subtotal equal or greater than 100 euro

The tab ‘Actions’ will allow you to grant free shipment. The label ‘Free Shipping’ has three values:

  1. 1. No
  2. 2. For matching items only
  3. 3. For shipment with matching items

In the tab ‘actions’ you are able to give free shipping

The first option will prevent giving free shipping. The second option will only give free shipment to the items that match the conditions you list in the block titled “Apply the rule only to cart items matching the following conditions”:

Applying rules to matching conditions in Magento

Using these matching conditions you can for example restrict free shipping to product of preselected categories:

Here only product from category 10 and 13 will receive free shipping. Products from other categories are still included in the shipment cost calculation.

The third option “shipment with matching items” will give free shipment to orders that contain matching items listed in the block titled “Apply the rule only to cart items matching the following conditions”. In the above example: if I have a product from category 10, my whole order will obtain free shipping even if I have products from another category.

Note: The examples above were made on a Magento 1.6.1.0.
