What is the Shipping Motivator?

The shipping motivator is a tool you can use to encourage your retailers to buy more items per order to receive free shipping on their orders.

Please note: At the moment the Shipping motivator is linked to the Special Shipping groups feature, therefore you must set-up special shipping groups in order to use the Shipping motivator. However, the Shipping Motivator will become available to use on regular shippings rates.

You can read more about how to set-up the special shipping groups here.

Where to find the Shipping Motivator

The shipping motivator is found in your settings > Products:
