Introducing Free Shipping Bar


Free Shipping Bar is an extension that helps to deliver relevant information to the customer:

  • Variables for price difference calculation;
  • Flexible in-store bar positioning;
  • Multi-store support;
  • Supports CSS and most popular Google fonts;
  • Easy to setup.

The extension is straightforward in delivering information on when customers can expect free shipping. The notification bar can be displayed at any store pages and set up to be displayed with the delay to let customers look through the page first.

Variables for cart total and difference between free shipping goal help creating personalized message and always provide relevant information on every cart update, urging customers to spend more to get free shipping.
