However, you should show the condition for free shipping clearly in your store to make sure that your customers don’t ever miss it.

What is Shopify Free Shipping Bar?

Shopify Free Shipping Bar displays messages to customers based on their purchasing progress toward free shipping. When the cart value reaches the target amount for free shipping, a congratulation message will be shown. 

Shopify Free Shipping Bar is a great feature, which supports boosting sales and increases average order value. It allows customers to know how much more they need to buy to get free shipping during their online shopping. Then, they want to put more products in their shopping cart. Hitting the target order value for free shipping is like completing a task and customers will feel good about that.

How to add Shopify Free Shipping Bar?

There are two ways to add Shopify Free Shipping Bar to your online store, which are using code and using ShineTrust app. With the first one, you need to know coding or have an experienced developer support you. Otherwise, using ShineTrust app is easier and you can add Shopify Shipping Bar by yourself without code requirement.

Using Code

You can consider this code recommended below as reference. Please try and customize (for example, sizing or alignment) to fit with your online store.

Step 1 - Add the code under the header tag

Copy and paste this code below the </header> closing tag:

					$0  $100

In this code above, the free shipping threshold is set at $100. You can edit the “10000” and “$100” value as your campaign.

Step 2 - Add dynamic message

Using liquid control flow tags for the dynamic message below the progress bar. Remember to edit the “10000” value as your preference.

					<br>{% if cart.items.size == 0 %}Purchase more to get free shipping.{% endif %}{% if cart.items.size != 0 %}{% if cart.total_price &gt;= 10000 %} Congratulations! You've got free shipping{% elsif cart.total_price &lt; 10000 %}Only {{ 10000 | minus: cart.total_price | money }} away from free shipping.{% endif %}{% endif %}

In this tab, you will see 3 big sections to customize, which are Free Shipping Goal, Message and Settings. As the default settings are most suitable with your store with eye-catching theme (view the example in the picture above), you should pay attention to these elements:

  • Depending on your free shipping campaign, enter a number in Free Shipping Goal. Ex: 100.
  • Edit your Start Message, Progress Message and Success Message as prefered. 
  • Choose a Font Family. DM Sans is recommended because it looks good in these small positions like the free shipping bar.
  • Turn on Close Button Icon so that customers can hide it if they don’t want to see. By this way, you can create a friendly customer experience.
  • Tick on Behavior Setting when you want to set the time (in units of seconds) that the free shipping bar will be shown or disappear.


While customizing, you can also see how your Shopify Free Shipping Bar appears in the Preview section at the top of the page. 

Step 6 - Choose Targeting

In the Show on Device section, choose the device that Free Shipping Bar will be shown: Desktop, Mobile or both. 


After that, configure the Visitor Targeting based on locations by choosing Include or Exclude whatever country you want in the Show on Locations field. For Visitor Source, please set up similarly. 

When finishing, click on Save & Publish or Save button at the end of the page.
