Free Shipping for Autoship Items at Checkout
You may want to incentivize Autoship signups by offering a free shipping option at checkout when a customer has Autoship items in their cart. This can be done with a couple easy steps:
- Go to WP-Admin > Autoship Cloud > Settings >> Options. Select "Add the Autoship Free Shipping Method to Checkout"
- Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping >> Shipping Zones. Toggle on the "Autoship Free Shipping" option to enable the Free Shipping option when a customer has Autoship Items in their cart.
When customers have no items selected for Autoship their shipping options at cart / checkout will remain normal, but when Autoship Items are present in the cart, the customer will be allowed to select the Autoship free shipping option.
Example: Free shipping at checkout for orders with a subtotal minimum of $50
In this example the merchant restricts the Autoship Free Shipping method at checkout to Autoship orders over $50. By applying a custom code snippet (see code example for Free Shipping at Checkout for Orders Over $50), the merchant now only displays the free shipping option only when there are items selected for Autoship in the cart and the cart total is $50 or more.
