However, we all know that free shipping costs anyway just being transferred to final prices of products. The logic of this transfer may differ considerably from one retailer to another, still the availability of free shipping depending on order amounts is often considered to be quite justified and fair grounding.
This way, the customers busy with their purchases in your store need to know the values of their shopping carts and future orders to reach the benchmark required to get free shipping. And, the Free Shipping Bar extension for Magento 2 provides them with this opportunity throughout the entire in-store journey.
Free Shipping Bar is a Small Business Kit extension and is offered to our customers just at $79, the same as any other modules of the set.
Once installed and configured the extension is going to stay useful for your customers each time they enter your store, while the highly customisable design allows you to make bars unobtrusive and pointful.
The module doesn’t require any other configuration except general settings. Of course, initial setting may take some time, but then you can just forget about the extension as it operates fully independently.
The Settings section of the extension consists of five smaller areas: general settings, Where to display, Content, Design, and Preview.
The general settings procedure includes enabling the extension, choosing required customer groups, and specifying free shipping goals. Free shipping goals determine the monetary threshold to be achieved by customers in order to obtain free shipping.
Where to Display
Next, you need to determine the pages suitable for shipping bar displays, e.g. all pages, catalog or product pages, shopping carts, checkout or all of them simultaneously. The module also asks about layout positions allowing you to choose among some predefined options, including page top, page bottom, content top and bottom, etc. You can also set up delays for bar displays in seconds or enter 0, if no delay is required.
Where to Display Area
Not only showing the free shipping goal the module also allows you to motivate customers to pack their carts with more products or consider some upsales. In fact, you can display three different notifications on free shipping bars.
The first one, for example, may notify customers on the beneficial availability to get products for a certain amount and get shipping for free. This content is suitable for the customers with empty carts. If a customer already has some products added, the notification is changed motivating him to add some products to the cart to get free shipping. And, if the monetary value of the cart is enough, the bar may congratulate a customer on this great result.
The message fields support Magento variables so each customer receives personalized messages automatically. You can also differentiate bars for store views, e.g. use suitable languages for certain locales.
Attractive and unobtrusive design of free shipping bars is settled from the Design configuration area. In order to gently notify customers on the opportunity to benefit from free shipping you can take advantage of versatile fonts, font sizes, weights, and colors. The font colors of goals may differ from the accompanying text and you can also easily paint own bar backgrounds.
Free Shipping Bar Design Settings
In addition to the predefined design options the module supports CSS, so you can take advantage of really creative and original free shipping bars.
The last configuration section provides you with a chance to recheck the content without any distracting interface elements.
That’s all! As soon as the configuration process is finished you can reward yourself with some rest and enjoy the result. And, we should also mention that the Free Shipping Bar extension passes Magento 2 static test requirements as far as the code of the extension has been properly tested by our developers.
The result of the provided above configuration becomes visible on the frontend immediately. Depending on store pages, selected layouts and design your customers will see some neat and natural notifications explaining them how to get the free shipping option for their products.
