Creating a shipping discount

Discount Configuration

We offer the following options to determine the amount of discount to apply to the specified delivery option(s).

  • Percentage - discounts qualifying delivery option(s) by the percentage specified
  • Free Shipping - applies 100% (free shipping) discount to qualifying delivery option(s)
  • Fixed amount off - reduces qualifying delivery option(s) price by the specified amount. If the specified amount is greater then the cost of the delivery option, it will be free.
  • Set fixed price - sets qualifying shipping option(s) to the specified fixed price. We calculate the difference between the original shipping option price and what you set it here to be and apply the discount for that amount. Will only apply if the original shipping option price is greater then the specified fixed price.
