Free Shipping for Orders Over a Certain Value Excluding Certain Products

Overview

This guide goes through how to offer free shipping for all orders over a certain dollar amount, with the exception of certain products.

Steps

Step 1: Create a Shipping Group

  1. Click on “Shipping Groups” on the left nav and add a new one. We’ll give the group the name “Necklace” for this example. Don’t worry about any of the advanced settings.
Please Note: This shipping group will need to be assigned to all of the products that this rule is to apply to.

Step 2: Create a Filter

  1. Click on “Filters” on the left nav and add a new one.
  2. Under Price Filter, change the dropdown to “Range” and enter the Minimum dollar amount (referred to as X) that applies to the filter.
  3. Save the filter.

Step 3: Create the New Carrier Rule

  1. Click on “Carrier Rules” on the left nav, and then click Add New +.
  2. In the Basic panel, enter a name for this rule, something like “Free Shipping over $X”.
  3. In the Shipping Methods panel, Add the Custom or Live Rate shipping method that you want to assign the rule to.
  4. In the Actions panel, set the drop down called Action to Perform to “Set/Surcharge Shipping Methods.” Under the Adapt Shipping Rates drop down select “Set Rates”. Under Apply Shipping Rate/Percentage choose “per Shipping Group” and select the Shipping Group defined in Part 1 above.
  5. In the Set/Modify section, in Shipping Rate field enter 0.00
  6. Save the rule.

Now, free shipping is provided to all orders over $X. Products that are not assigned to the shipping group from part 1 will receive free shipping. Products that are assigned to that shipping group will receive the rates defined by the carrier as normal.
