Since we are talking about free shipping, I was looking for some articles about expanding in Latin America - and especially Argentina - (since I am considering that as an option to my business) - and I found some great news about a logistics upgrade in their postal service that might be useful for you as well:
Thank you for taking the time to explain how this would benefit your business, and how by not having it negatively affects your business. I've gotten this feedback added to the existing feature request to further add to use cases for why this should be added. Using a third-party app such as Upsell may be your best route here given that you've tried all viable workarounds that exist natively within the platform.
I hear what you're saying, and believe me, this is a feature that I've wanted to be added to the platform for some time. Regretfully, the "why" to why we don't have it isn't something I have access to, however, I do know that these type of features aren't as easy to implement as one would expect. As you can imagine, we receive hundreds of different requests, which require a lot of man-hours to review to fully understand what would be required to get these type of features launched. As we grow, we are able to deploy more man hours to these projects to help make them a reality, so while we haven't yet gotten this added, I can say that our teams are reviewing this further.
I need this feature too. I switched to Shopify on march 1st (I've beenin business for 12 years), and needed this feature so many times since. I sell offline too on certain events and offer a discount on the event. And as the customers get their goods right away of course they shall not pay for shipping.
Please put my vote in there.
Thank you for expressing your continued interest in getting this feature added to the Shopify platform. I've added your votes to the existing feature request so our developers are aware there's further interest in implementing stackable discounts.
I've been hoping for this also since I switched from Volusion last year. It was so simple to do with them and it sounds like every other major shopping platform has this. I just went to one of my competitor's websites and a popup comes up that says "10% Off and Free Shipping on First Order with Coupon Code: XYZ". That would be huge if we could do something similar. Or is there something that I'm missing??
