How to create a "Free just pay shipping" promotion for one item??

If anyone could help me with this, I'd REALLY appreciate it!!!!  I've been working on this all day (actually for weeks lol) but can't seem to figure it out.

I'm trying to set up a promotion on my store for just one item that sells for $0, but the customer just has to pay shipping.

I have hundreds of other products in my jewelry store.  My products don't go by weight for shipping, but instead I've set a blanket $3 shipping for all my products on the shopify shipping settings.  I've set up other blanket shipping options, such as $15 for all international shipping rates, $25 for 2-day and $40 for next day shipping.

It sounded like such a simple task at the on set, espeically when someone told me that the app "Better Shipping" could solve my problem, but it's just been absolutely impossible to do!

I've tried to use Better Shipping, juggling around various options and combinations, but just can't quite get it to work for me.  Better shipping doesnt seem to have international rates either.  I'm so frustated - can anyone suggest an app or something I can do to make this work?  Huge thank you in advance!!!

Why don't you just set the price for that product to $0 and then it's "Compared to price" to its original price? The product will become free and your blanked shipping prices are still the same.

Am I missing something here?

Hi there Melanie! 

My name is Mark, part of the Shopify support team here! 

Another option that may be useful is setting a very specific weight to the 'free' product and creating a shipping rate based specifically on that products weight, so that only that product will trigger the rate to be displayed at checkout. 

This option should work well, especially considering the rest of your rates aren't based on weight.

I hope that this helps!

Hi,

This works just fine if customers only buy the free + shipping item, but if they purchase an other item with free shipping, then the free + shipping item will be for free.

This is very complicated and conflicting with each other. I also need help with this.

ps.: I had everthing configured to grams but still wont work

If someone add a item that has free shipping and one free item

before I added free shipping in all items was working well

I am sorry for the confusing post 

Can anyone help me here?

Thanks a lot

The app we develop, Advanced Shipping Rules, allows you configure different rates for different groups of products, and will help you to set up products as free + shipping, as well as maintain your normal product shipping rates.

Why not just use a promo code deducting the price of that item? Then just make sure you set flat rate shipping during the promotion, or free shipping after x amount. Why do so many people manipulate the weight? Is there a reason for that?
