Magento 2 Free Shipping Bar extension helps increase your customers' shopping cart size by delivering a tempting offer. The module works as a reminder of the extra benefits buyers get when they spend more on your store.
You've just added this product to the cart:
Free shipping, nowadays, has no longer been considered as an extra benefit. It's more likely to be a standard in e-commerce, even when it sounds so unreasonable to most online stores. According to Wharton marketing professor David Bell, an amount of only $6.99 saved by a free shipping offer is more tempting than other discounts which help a customer cut down $10. This figure shows that free shipping is much more appreciated by online shoppers.
Also, according to VWO ecommerce survey conducted in 2014, about trends and insights to find and convert buyers, nearly one-fourth of online buyers were happy to spend more than their initial purpose to win a free shipping. This phenomenon commonly happens for some obvious reasons: customers love free stuff, and they find purchasing this way more familiar. When buyers know that they will benefit if they buy a little more, they will be willing to check out with a bigger shopping cart.
This is why Free Shipping Bar works amazingly on Magento 2 stores. A reminder is displayed to buyers to motivate them to add more items to cart. Through this, online stores can convince their customers to check out with a bigger shopping cart. Conversion rates and sales, consequently, increase significantly.
Also according to VWO ecommerce survey, roughly 30% of online shopping carts were abandoned because of unexpected shipping costs. This concerning figure is unhealthy for your business. However, by providing free shipping, this problem seems to be eliminated easily. This offer on your store may also attract them to come back for further purchases.
Even if some buyers do not mind paying for delivery, they will be even easily convinced to extend their shopping carts by adding more items as these customers are more willing to spend extra on your store. This is why 60% of online retailers use free shipping as one of the most powerful marketing tools.
Depending on the configuration, a free shipping bar can be shown on any page at any places on your online store. You either display the bar on all pages or specific pages. Plus, on a page, you are offered 4 default positions to display free shipping bar. Also, store admins can insert a snippet to show the shipping bar in any place you want.
The free shipping bar can be customized to convey the message the way you want. You are free to change the template and design to match your store's theme.
Based on the customer's current shopping cart total, Mageplaza Free Shipping Bar extension will automatically calculate and show a relevant message to the buyer. There are three standard messages which match three shopping phases:

In past, we had issues with high shipping cost. With this plugin, we charge users who buy too little. Oh my god, that's a lifesaver! Thank you so much!

This extension worths the value of 2 extensions since it not only has a free shipping bar but also as a promotional bar. Moreover, the support by Ben was really friendly and professional. I look forward to seeing new features enhancing. Overall, this's a great extension.

More than useful extension I used it for free shipping and even to show another purpose banner which is really good to send messages to your customers. Also, you can edit it to send a gift if the cart value is above xxx $. I would highly recommend this module to everyone.

It's very handy and easy to install and configure this extension. Maybe the documentation could be a little better, but otherwise, I would highly recommend this extension. Let's see other plugin from Mageplaza!
