How to configure Magento 2 free shipping

Shipping choices play a vital role in an online shopper’s decision whether the cart is worth the payment. People usually put off buying something because they felt the delivery costs were too high – the fact that most shoppers are OK waiting for shipping coupon offers or receiving their order later than expected if they don’t have to pay for shipping.

Free shipping can be an effective marketing strategy designed to benefit both the consumers and the retailers. When retailers can bring customer orders to the shop, they’ll come and pick it up if that’s what it takes to escape a delivery fee. And once they’re in the store, they’re very open to seeing what else the retailer has to offer. The goal is to encourage an increase in sales and keep consumers returning to your store, regardless of taking a short-term loss. Eventually, all the sacrifices will be paid off when you gain customer trust and loyalty.
