The benefits of offering a Free Shipping Threshold

< 1 min

Free Shipping is now available to your customers through the Phorest Online Store platform. You can now set a spend threshold that online shoppers can avail of free shipping if they hit or exceed. 

Why is a free shipping threshold so effective?

This is a great way to boost sales, among other great benefits:

  1. Increase the average spend of online shoppers – Studies show that consumers are more likely to spend more to reach the free delivery threshold. Free shipping orders on average have an approximately 30% higher value.
  2. Give customers what they expect – Customers are becoming more accustomed to having free shipping available to them, and as such, are more strongly deterred from retailers that don’t offer it.
  3. Reduce cart abandonment – Consumers are more likely to follow through with their orders to purchase. This is because of a study showing 47% of online shoppers indicated that they would abandon their purchase if they got to the checkout and found out that free shipping was not available.

How do I enable a free shipping threshold?

Go to Manager > Online Store > Settings.

Change Enabled Free Delivery over a certain amount to Yes

Enter the Minimum Order Spend that needs to be met in order to get free shipping > Click Save to finish.
