The SuiteCommerce Shipping Bar extension lets you add a shipping bar and banners to your website to inform shoppers of how much they have to spend to qualify for free or special rate shipping.

Important

SuiteCommerce extensions are only available if they are provisioned and set up in your account. For more information, see NetSuite Extensions.


SuiteCommerce Shipping Bar lets you display messages that indicate how much web store users have to spend, how much more they need to buy, and when they qualify for shipping. Shipping Bar checks the cart amount in order to swap between the messages dynamically. When the cart value meets the minimum cart amount, a congratulations message is displayed to users. Shipping Bar contains default messages, but you can customize the text as required.

You can choose to display the shipping bar in:

  • web store header

  • product page

  • cart

In the web store header, you can choose the size of the shipping bar and add a link to a specific page such as a shipping terms and conditions page. The background color of the bar and text color are taken from your theme.

In the product page and in the cart, users see a banner that indicates whether they qualify for shipping if they add that item to the cart. If the cart total with that item does not meet the minimum value to qualify for shipping, shoppers are informed of how much more they need to spend to qualify.

To use the SuiteCommerce Shipping Bar extension, you must have already completed the following tasks for your web store:

  1. Create a new shipping item to apply free or special rate shipping automatically. You use this shipping item as your default shipping method. See the help topic Creating Shipping Items.

  2. Select the new shipping method as your preferred shipping method in the website setup. See Setting a Preferred Shipping Method for Your Site.

Important

The SuiteCommerce Shipping Bar extension does not consider any shipping promotions that you may have set up in your account using SuitePromotions or advanced promotions. It only takes into account the cart value.
