Using Free Shipping for Site Promotion

You can give customers free shipping incentives to shop at your Quick Shopping Cart store. By using this free shipping method, customers don't have to enter a coupon code when checking out because Quick Shopping Cart automatically subtracts the shipping amount from the order total.

You can set up free shipping with a specific shipping method, which allows you to set the rules that govern free shipping, such as the minimum amount that qualifies for free shipping and the dates you want to make free shipping available.

When you create a free shipping promotion for one of your published shipping methods, you do not need to republish the website to make the free shipping promotion active. The free shipping promotion is based on a shipping method that you already published. However, if you disable a shipping method, you must republish the website to disable the shipping method for your store.

Before you can create a free shipping promotion, you must:

  • Enable the shipping methods you want to use to ship products. For more information about shipping, see Providing Shipping Options.
  • Activate your shipping methods by publishing your site. For more information about publishing your site, see Publishing Your Storefront.

Note: For Intuit® QuickBooks® users, when you apply a free shipping promotion, the QuickBooks Shipping discount is the same as the discount used for free shipping coupons.
