New Extension: Free Shipping Incentive
Another Magento extension for you now – this one is pretty simple.
Basically if you have free shipping enabled and a minimum shipping amount to qualify (say £25 or so) then you will see a new box appear at the top of your right/left column.
Something like this:
As you can see from the above image, the incentive changes depending on the quantity in your cart. The styling is easy to change as it is located in the template/freeshippingincentive/freeshippingincentive.phtml file.
To install simply download this file and upload the contents to your app folder. To check it is working make sure you have the following set up:
1. left or right bar is enabled and you have selected which to display the block in your layout/freeshippingincentive.xml file.
2. Free shipping is enabled
3. Minimum amount in cart for free shipping is set and is greater than 0.
As long as all 3 of the above are met your new block should appear!
This extension has been tried and tested in version 184.108.40.206 but may work on other versions however I have yet to test. You’ll also find this extension very soon on Magento Connect – as long as they get their upload feature working that is!
Any problems with it let me know and I’ll fix as soon as possible!
