    Default Free shipping option is including item values with individual free shipping

    On my site I have a product that I give free shipping using the free shipping module.

    The problem is is I also have free shipping on the site for all purchases over $47.00. What's happening is the product price for the item that already gets free shipping gets rolled into the cart total that determines overall free shipping. This is not what I want as the item that gets the free shipping is shipped separately etc.

    So for instance, they could order 3 t-shirts (this is my item where I don't charge shipping) and one other small item and the small item winds up getting shipped free because their whole cart total passed 47.00.

    My intention is to keep my 47.00 threshold applicable only to the items that are liable for shipping.

    I know there must be an obvious solution but can't find. Any one have any ideas on this?

    Default Re: Free shipping option is including item values with individual free shipping

    one way to state what I am wanting is to be able to say - "please don't include this product/category when determining the threshold for the 'all purchases over $47.00 gets free shipping"

    www g o t v a p e s com

    is where this is implemented...

    This is a bit tricky ...

    If you use the Modules ... Shipping ot_shipping ... for managing the Free Shipping on orders over $47.00 ...

    You would need to calculate how much of the Total is from the Product(s) in the cart that cannot count towards the Free Shipping on Orders over $XX.XX ...

    Then you would need to customize the code in all of the files, around 7 or so files) that use the amount based on:
    MODULE_ORDER_TOTAL_SHIPPING_FREE_SHIPPING_OVER

    for when Free Shipping occurs ...

    This is quite a few files ...

    Another way to manage this is to use the Free Shipping Options freeoptions shipping module and customize that file to manage the calculation and when the adjusted amount is over $47.00, then show this shipping module as an Option to the other shipping modules so that the customer sees the Free Shipping Options freeoptions as well as any other shipping module and you can allow them to make the choice for Free Shipping or to ship the order in a different manner ...
