Setting Up a Free Shipping Carrier

Overview

You might offer UPS Ground, UPS 2nd Day Air, and UPS Next Day Air as shipping options but want to offer a Free Shipping option for customers who order more than $100.

ShipperHQ’s Free Shipping Carrier gives you a quick and easy way to show a “Free Shipping” option in the cart/chekout.

Setup

  1. Add a Custom Carrier and select the “Free” Carrier Type via Add New the “Carriers” tab or Marketplace
  2. Set a name for your Free Shipping Carrier and Configure Carrier Settings
  3. In the Basic panel, define the Carrier Title (which is shown to your customers and is the equivalent of “UPS” or “FedEx”)
  4. Still in the Basic panel, under the Free Shipping Rules section set the Shipping Method Name and the Minimum Order Amount. When you set a Minimum Order Amount, ShipperHQ will automatically show this carrier whenever the cart order total hits or exceeds this amount.

Other Options

If you’d rather offer an existing shipping option for free (for example, charge for UPS Ground for orders under $100 but offer it for free for orders over $100) this can be easily achieved with ShipperHQ’s flexible Carrier Rules.

Additionally, you might only want to offer free shipping for a certain group of items or for a certain group of customers.
