How do I set up free shipping?

This option is used in conjunction with discounts and coupons. It enables you to set free shipping only for orders within a particular country which match the criteria you stipulate in the discount set up eg. free shipping for all orders over $100. To set the countries to which free shipping applies, go to your countries admin page and you will see a column "FSA" which stands for "Free Shipping Applies". Only those countries checked will be eligible for free standard shipping. You will also need to check the FSA box for the shipping methods that it should apply to. Remember that a rule will have to be set up first in your discount admin page for this to work. This is not available for flat rate shipping.
Note that free shipping is store wide and cannot be restricted to particular products or categories although it is possible to make products shipping exempt through the product admin page.
