Configuring shopping cart price rules in Magento: Free shipping

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:

Cart price rule conditions
Free shipping

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

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

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”.

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

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”. Example: if I have a product from category 10, my whole order will obtain free shipping even if I have products from another category.
