Free-ship plugin (Per Product free shipping for Marketpress)

Works with wordpress 3.7.1 and Marketpress lite 2.5.1- the WP e-commerce lite version (the free one)

Many websites use Marketpress Lite, and use table-rate for shipping prices – table rate sets a shipping costs based on order value.

However table-rates don’t always work well.

Example : your website sells tickets, t-shirts and sweatshirts for an event.

For instance if you’re selling high value items with a low weight in amongst other merchandise, a customer can pay a high shipping cost for an actual low shipping cost.

So buying a £15 event ticket will attract the same shipping price as a sweatshirt.

Now yes you can use a weight based shipping calculation, but then you have to enter weights for everything, and it can get really complicated for the customer to understand.

So this plugin allows you to set free shipping on an item.

That way a free shipping ticket can go in with the concert t-shirt they order.

Example : special offers

Many websites now offer free-shipping as a sales incentive on certain items.

This plugin lets you quickly and easily set it up.

How it works

The plugin sets up a box within each product page, with a simple click box to set free shipping for that product.

On installation, you’ll need to back into store settings>shipping, and in “select shipping method” set it to “Fs table rate” and then set up your shipping tables again.

Otherwise that’s it.

The store won’t flag free shipping anywhere to the customer, so you are free to decide how to flag this (or not).

Download this to your PC, and then using dashboard>plugins>add new and select upload files and upload the zipped file to your site
