Combining a discount code with free shipping in Shopify

For many Shopify store owners, I’m sure you’ve wanted to offer discounts on your products, as well as free shipping. Having great promotions like this is key for your customers, as they’re more likely to return to your store for future sales.

At the moment, there is no easy way to achieve this, however, Shopify did announce they will soon manage this natively. In the meantime, you can try the following method.

You can attempt to change the shipping rate in your store, however, this can only be changed per country, not product. It’s not the best solution if you’re looking to limit free shipping to certain products or collections.

Creating a free shipping discount code

You can create a free shipping discount code that customers can enter at checkout on your store. This will not get applied automatically on their order, they’ll need to apply the code themselves. If you want to offer your customers free shipping, you’ll need to set up a free shipping rate in the Shipping section of your Shopify store. This will get applied to all orders that meet the free shipping criteria you have set.

Don’t forget to set a start and end date for your discount codes if this is needed.
