Free Shipping For Specific Items

In this example we will be applying free shipping to gift cards, but it can be applied to any group of products. First we must set up an attribute to trigger the products that we want to have free shipping to be able to receive it.

Creating the free shipping attribute

NRO / Catalog / Attributes / Manage Attributes

Properties tab

Set your properties tab to match the yellow fields below.

Manage Label / Options

Enter "Ship Free" in the yellow fields.

Assigning the attribute to a group and set

NRO / Catalog / Attributes / Manage Attribute Sets

Select the first entry in your Manage Attribute Sets panel. In the example below it will be color_shoesize. You will repeat the process below until all sets include the free shipping attribute.

TIP: Your attribute will look different. Attribute sets are based off the alternate units and gridded items you have coming from Counterpoint. Be sure to assign the free shipping attribute to all of them.

Look in the Unassigned Attributes section on the right hand side. Your free_ship attribute will be listed there. Hold-left click the attribute and drag it to be one of the last fields under the Groups section on the left. Save your progress.

Activate free shipping for all items

NRO / Catalog / Manage Products

Now we will assign the free ship attribute to all products in the store. This will not give all products free shipping, it just makes it available to them. 

TIP: For products to claim free shipping they must be assigned to the free shipping promo code we will set up next.

On the light gray bar on the left of the screen, click Select All. Follow the line all the way to the right and change the actions drop down to Update Attributes and click Submit.

Once in the Update Attributes screen scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen and find your free ship attribute. Check the Change box and set Free Ship/Ship Free to Yes. Save you changes in the top right corner of the screen.

Your actions should look similar to this when complete.
