Amount Left for Free Shipping for WooCommerce - Cart Checkout Minicart Options

Enable/Disable
Enables/disables amount left for free shipping info on the cart page / mini-cart widget / checkout page / “add to cart” notice.
Default: no
Content
You can use HTML and/or shortcodes here. Replaced values (i.e. placeholders):

  • %amount_left_for_free_shipping%
  • %free_shipping_min_amount%
  • %current_cart_total%
  • %amount_left_for_free_shipping_raw%
  • %free_shipping_min_amount_raw%
  • %current_cart_total_raw%

Default:
%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping
Position
Text position.
Default:
After cart totals / After mini cart / After order review / After the standard text
Position order (priority)
Here you can move the info inside the Position selected above.
Default: 10

Available positions in cart: Before cart; Before cart table; Before cart contents; Cart contents; Cart coupon; Cart actions; After cart contents; After cart table; Cart collaterals; After cart; Before cart totals; Cart totals: Before shipping; Cart totals: After shipping; Cart totals: Before order total; Cart totals: After order total; Proceed to checkout; After cart totals; Before shipping calculator; After shipping calculator; If cart is empty.

Available positions in mini-cart: Before mini cart; Before buttons; After mini cart.

Available positions on checkout: Before checkout form; Before customer details; Billing; Shipping; After customer details; Before order review; Order review; Order review: Before shipping; Order review: After shipping; Order review: Payment: Before submit button; Order review: Payment: After submit button; After order review; After checkout form.

Available positions in “add to cart” notice: After the standard text; Before the standard text.

If amount left for free shipping is not updated, when you update the cart content – you need to change the Position. For example – if you select the default “After cart totals” position for the “Info on Cart” – amount will be updated (if, for example, you change product quantities in the cart). On the other hand – if you select “After cart” position – amount will not be updated and your customer will have to refresh the cart page manually to see the updated left to free shipping amount. In other words – position must be inside that part of the cart page that is being refreshed after cart content changes. Same applies to the checkout page, where amount may differ depending on shipping country selected by customer (in case if you have multiple free shipping methods in multiple shipping zones with different minimal order amounts).

"Free Shipping Reached" Options

Amount Left for Free Shipping for WooCommerce - Free Shipping Reached Options

Message on Free Shipping Reached
You can use HTML and/or shortcodes here. To disable – set it empty.
Default:
You have free delivery!

Advanced Options

Amount Left for Free Shipping for WooCommerce - Advanced Options

Manual min amount
Generally the plugin will retrieve the minimum free shipping order amount automatically, however, if you are using non-standard shipping methods for free shipping, you need to set the amount manually here. Please note that in this case (differently from automatic min amount retrieval), the same min amount will be used for all shipping zones. Ignored if set to zero.
Default: 0

Styling Examples

There is a number of ways you could restyle the messages. For example, you can add <span> tag with style attribute, e.g.:

<span style="color:red;font-size:small;">%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping</span>

Or if you want to create an alert box:

<div style="background-color:#ff9800;color:white;padding:15px;">%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping</div>

Progress Bar

To display the amount as a graphical progress bar instead of a text, you can use HTML <progress> tag and plugin’s _raw amounts. For example, try adding this to the “Content” option:

<progress max="%free_shipping_min_amount_raw%" value="%current_cart_total_raw%"></progress>

Or if you need an inverted value:

<progress max="%free_shipping_min_amount_raw%" value="%amount_left_for_free_shipping_raw%"></progress>

If you’d like to restyle the progress bar, check this page.

  1. Hi, I’m using this plugin but I decide to change shipping price but whenever I hit “Save Changes” button it gives me 403 FORBIDDEN Access to this resource on the server is denied! message. I cannot change the free shipping amount. I delete and reinstalled it but it installs with my old settings. Can you help me?

    1. Hi,

      It looks like some security tool is stopping settings from saving. Do you have anything like “Wordfence” plugin installed on your server? Also, could you please try saving it with the simplest “Content/Message” settings possible, something like “test” (i.e. without any HTML tags etc.)?

  2. When I set the checkout page position to “Order review: Before shipping”, the notice appears before the whole order review section, not next to the shipping line item. How can I get the notice to appear right next to the shipping line item in the order review subtotal section?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Kelly,

      As this position is inside the HTML table, you need wrap your content in <tr>...</tr> tags, i.e. set your “Content” option (in “WooCommerce > Settings > Amount Left for Free Shipping”) to something like this:

      <tr><td colspan="2">%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping</td></tr>

      or like this:

      <tr><th>Free shipping in</th><td>%amount_left_for_free_shipping%</td></tr>

      Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    2. That works perfectly, thank you!

    3. Happy to help 🙂 Let me know if you need anything else.

      And if you like the plugin, please consider leaving me a rating.

  3. Does it support a floating cart by the Elementor?

  4. Hi there, I’m of fan of your plugins, really great job!

    Prepurchase question. I’m thinking of the purchase of Pro version of Amount Left for Free Shipping for WooCommerce plugin and just one question left unanswered for me – may you please add the ajax support for that plugin?

    Because when for example I insert PHP or shortcut in our theme in header or footer or sidebar of the WP it is not updated when products added in card via ajax. Customers need to manually refresh the page or visit another page to update the “Total left for free shipping” notice placed manually via shortcode.

    This is just a single pain, the rest is super clean and simple.
    May you please do this?
    Regards

  5. Does your plugin support multi-currency?

    I tried the free version. The free shipping is USD 30 (so in HKD, it’s HKD230), but in frontend, it uses HK30 to calculate the free shipping

  6. Is it possible to set the “Amount Left” to appear only for a determined ZIP code range? In our website only a few ZIP code ranges have access to free shipping. Couldnt find this feature in the plugin and is decisive for our use.

    1. Hi, Guilherme,

      Sorry for such a late reply.

      Actually the plugin should work as you’ve described out of the box. The plugin searches for available free shipping methods automatically, so if there are no methods in the current shipping zone (i.e. for current ZIP code), then no message should be displayed. Are you seeing messages for the wrong zones? If that is the case – maybe you have set the “Manual min amount” option in “Advanced Options” (this would explain the problem)? If this is not helping – maybe I could log in to your site to check what’s going on (my email is [email protected])? Please let me know if sharing an account is not an option and I will continue solving it remotely.

  7. Hello,

    im having an issue with the plugin.
    Actually i have added a welcome promo code that should not be taken into account in the “amount left for shipping”.
    For example, if someone buys for 29€ ” amount left for shipping is 10€” but when we add the promo code the amount gets back to 15€ and this is wrong.

    How can i fix this please?

    1. Hi,

      Sure, no problem. We’ve just released new plugin version 1.4.4. After the update you will find new “Include discounts” option in plugin settings (in “WooCommerce > Settings > Amount Left for Free Shipping > General Options”). It’s enabled by default, so you should disable it.

      Please let me know if it’s not working as expected. And if you like the plugin, please consider leaving me a rating.

    2. Just did !
      Thank you so much 🙂

    3. Happy to help 🙂 Please let me know if you need anything else, and thank you for the review, I really appreciate it.

  8. Can you share how to change the color of the font including the %amount_left_for_free_shipping%? The above answers only change the font around the amount left.

    Thanks,

    1. Hi,

      I’ve just rechecked it on my server and setting it simply as:

      <span style="color: red;">%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping</span>

      seems to be solving the problem, so I suppose it’s must be your theme overriding the color. Please try setting the “Content” to:

      <span class="amount-free-shipping">%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping</span>

      and then try adding this to your custom CSS (in “Customize > Additional CSS”):

      .amount-free-shipping,
      .amount-free-shipping .woocommerce-Price-currencySymbol,
      .amount-free-shipping .woocommerce-Price-amount {
          color: red !important;
      }

      If that won’t help – maybe you can give me a link to your site’s frontend (if you want to do it privately, my email is [email protected]).

  9. Hi! We have the plugin installed on our site diatomplus.sk, seems to be installed correctly, activated, but does not appear anywhere on our site. Any support or solution? Thanks.

    1. If anyone else has similar issues – as we’ve figured out in private conversations – the problem was that the non-standard shipping method was used for free shipping (i.e. instead of the default WooCommerce “Free shipping” method), so the plugin couldn’t retrieve minimum order amount properly. This is now solved in plugin v1.4.2 – we’ve added new “Manual min amount” option to “WooCommerce > Settings > Amount Left for Free Shipping > Advanced Options”, so now min order amount can be set manually.

  10. I installed the plugin but I can’t configure it at all.
    I set the limit beyond which shipping is free but I don’t see anything.
    I generated a key at the domain but it is not clear where to save it in the wordpress backend.
    Is there support or a guide for this plugin? thanks

    1. Hi Steven,

      As key is needed for automatic updates only, it can’t be the reason… Maybe it would be possible for me to login to your site’s admin? If yes – my email is [email protected]

      P.S. To enter the key, you need to install free WPFactory Helper plugin.

  11. Hi Tom,
    second time I am implementing the free plugin to a website.
    This time the amount left is not correct.
    Free shipping is 75 EUR, which is in the Woo-Settings.
    I have an article for 24,90 EUR in my cart. Calculated amount or free shipping is 54,08€ what should be 50,10 EUR.
    Am I missing a setting anywhere?

    1. Hi Alexander,

      It looks like there is some problem with taxes. I’m fixing it at the moment – will get back to you shortly.

    2. Hi again, Alexander,

      Could you please update the plugin to v1.4.0 and try again. The issue with taxes should be fixed now.

  12. Hi!

    I can’t get this to display on the mini cart (I have the pro version). Any advice that might help?

    Thanks

    1. Ooo – I logged out and in and it’s working now. Cheers.

  13. Hi there,

    we just bought the plugin “amount until free shipping” which is great to have this option.
    I implemented the shortcode [alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping] on my cart page. When updating the cart, the value isn´t updated.
    Just within the cart calculation “after cart totals” it is working.
    How can I force a site reload then, because it seems to be AJAx driven reloaded.

    Thanks for help,
    Alex

    1. Hi Alex,

      The problem is that only part of the cart page is reloaded, so you need to choose the correct “Position”. For example, if you select the default “After cart totals” position for the “Info on Cart” – the amount will be updated. As I understand, you are putting the shortcode directly to the cart page instead? If that’s correct, unfortunately, the amount will not be updated.

  14. Hi,
    ist there any CSS class to use to have the whole text “%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping” be displayed with a background color, e.g. yellow?
    Thanks,
    Alex

    1. Hi Alex,

      Sorry for the late reply. You can wrap it in your own HTML tags directly in plugin settings (in “WooCommerce > Settings > Amount Left for Free Shipping > Content”). For example <div> tag with your-class class for CSS:

      <div class="your-class">%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping</div>

      or you can set style it directly:

      <div style="background-color:yellow;">%amount_left_for_free_shipping% left for free shipping</div>

      Hope that helps.

  15. Can i translate the text which is shown? Or only in the language, which i typed the text?

    1. Hi Rene,

      Yes, you can translate text (for WPML or Polylang) by using our [alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate] shortcode, e.g.:

      [alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate lang="DE"]Text for DE[/alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate][alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate lang="NL"]Text for NL[/alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate][alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate not_lang="DE,NL"]Text for other languages[/alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate]

      Hope that helps and please let me know if you have any questions.

    2. Hi, can you help me with that? I am using this setup: https://prnt.sc/on6zu2 – so without shortcodes. Can i still transalte it?

    3. Hi Rene,

      Sorry for the late reply. You need to use the translation shortcode directly in your settings. That is – instead of “Content” settings from your screenshot, you need to put something like this to “Content”:

      <div style="...">[alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate lang="DE"]%amount_left_for_free_shipping% for DE[/alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate][alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate lang="NL"]%amount_left_for_free_shipping% for NL[/alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate][alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate not_lang="DE,NL"]%amount_left_for_free_shipping% for other languages[/alg_wc_left_to_free_shipping_translate]</div>
    4. Hi thank you very much, it is working perfectly! I dont even need the premium version, but I still bought it, because it is an awesome plugin!!

    5. Hi Rene,

      Happy to help 🙂 Please let me know if you need anything else and thank you for the purchase!

  16. Hi! We have this plugin on our site and we have an issue that free shipping is not selected by default when you’r over the ammount that gives you free shipping ?

    Is there any documentation on the plugin that we can read to understand how to get this to work ?

    Also what is the difference between the premium version and the free ?

    1. Hi Paul,

      Not sure if I understood you correctly, but if you mean that you need free shipping method to become active (i.e. selected) when free shipping amount is reached, please try moving it to the first position in “WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping > Your shipping zone > Edit”.

      Please let me know if I misunderstood you.

    2. P.S. As for the difference between free and Pro: free version only allows you to show “left to free shipping” info on the cart page, while Pro version also allows you to show the info on the mini-cart and checkout pages.

  17. Hi,
    with a single site licence, am I aloowed to install on my devt platform (local PC) and my production environment?

    Thanks

    1. Hi,

      You can install the plugin on both servers, however, with single site license plugin updates can be enabled on one site only. Also, you can generate the key (in https://wpfactory.com/my-account/downloads/) for your development domain now, and when you move to the new domain, you just delete the old key/site and generate a new key for the new site (again – key is needed for automatic updates only).
