Free Shipping

The Free Shipping benefit gives all members Free Shipping on all orders for the length of their membership.

Marketing Tip: Free Shipping is a great evergreen benefit for your members. Take the time to explain to them that their savings will quickly outweigh their initial membership cost.

Pro Tip: Set requirements for a minimum purchase amount or quantity of items and promote this to your customers to raise your AOV.

Pro Tip: This benefit can be configured to allow free shipping on orders that meet specific thresholds such as cart value - or for specific shipping methods such as offering free standard shipping, while still offering a paid option for expedited shipping.

The Free Shipping benefit will not automatically provide free shipping on the order where the membership is purchased - the Free Shipping benefit will only apply to subsequent member purchases. If you wish to give your members free shipping on their first order, you will need to customize the benefit script to apply to orders that include the membership product

To set up free shipping:

  1. Click on the Benefits tab in Inveterate, and then click on Free Shipping.

  2. Enter the name of the benefit - this is what the customer will see.

  3. Enter the description of the benefit. This is where you describe how the free shipping benefit will work to your members.

  4. Upload the icon that you want to use. See below for a template you can use.

  5. Configure the minimum requirements to get Free Shipping. You can set whether customers need to purchase a certain number of items, or set a minimum purchase amount.

  6. Exclude Specific Shipping Rates if you exclude certain shipping rates from free shipping. You can use this to have customers get free ground shipping, but still have the option to pay for expedited shipping.

  7. Select the countries the Free Shipping benefit will apply to.

  8. Select whether free shipping will be applied using a code or through a script. Note: Only Shopify Plus merchants are able to use scripts. Non-Plus merchants need to use codes.

  9. Enter the free shipping code (if you are not using a script).

  10. Save the benefit settings.

  11. Enable the benefit.

Only Shopify Plus merchants can use scripts to apply free shipping. If you are not on Shopify Plus, you will need to set up a coupon code.

Pro Tip: Coupon codes created in Inveterate are synced back to Shopify for easy management. See more in Member Only Discounts
