1. Overview

Everyone loves free shipping. And Magento 2 Free Shipping Bar will help you present your free shipping policy to buyers in a compelling and irresistible way. The notifier about free shipping will be displayed in form of a message bar. It informs customers about the minimum cart total to get free shipping and the remaining amount until they reach that limit. For example: “15$ left until 89$ for free shipping”. Regularly, store owners often set a popup to remind buyers of this program. But we all know how quickly it is closed before anything can be read. With Magento 2 Free Shipping Bar, we make sure your message is conveyed to buyers at any places you wish on your store.

2. How Does It Work?

Please go to Stores ⇒ Configuration ⇒ BSSCOMMERCE ⇒ Free Shipping Bar and start configuration.

2.1 In General Configuration

Magento 2 Free Shipping Threshold Settings

In Enabled: Choose Yes to enable the module or choose No to disable it. The module can be enabled/disable on Store view level.

In Free Shipping Threshold: For each Customer Group, choose the minimum amount for free shipping at the Threshold box. In the Message box, set the message displaying in the message bar. You can use these 3 variables: {leftValue}, {thresholdValue} and {cartSubtotal}. Please remind that {leftValue}={thresholdValue}-{cartSubtotal}.

The scope of the settings is Store View. Hence you can customize the message in different languages and the Threshold value at different currencies for each store view.
