How do I create a "free shipping" option for my sale?
« on: July 03, 2012, 18:26:19 pm »
Hi,
I want to advertise "free" shipping on all purchases $75 or more, in Canada only.  How do I do this?  I looked in the "shipper" tab but there are no variables for me to enter a minimum $$ amount.  It's just saying weight (for new shipper)...

Look in your main VirtueMart configuration, "Store" section, "Edit Store".  Under the "Store Information" section there is an option called "Minimum Amount for Free Shipping: ".  Set this to your desired free shipping amount, or zero to disable.

Done.... thanks!  Is there a way to make this exclusive to Canada only?

Not without custom modifications, or a custom shipping module.  I have one called "Shipvalue - Countries" that may work for you.

I do not see this, the store information just has the store owner as a vendor??  When setting the Minimum Amount on the Shipping Rate its self it does not work... any ideas??

Perhaps this relates to an earlier version.....but I don't see any section called "Store" anywhere

Under "Configuration" is a section called "Shop". Is this what is intended? But I don't see anything there called 'Store Information" or "Shop information".

Can anyone point me to where this "minimum amount for free shipping" option is located?

thanks
