Discounts & Free limit


Hi all,
I am getting a couple of comments from my clients with discounts and a "free shipping limit" on the checkout.
Say the "free shipping limit" is set to 60 euros, the user orders for 63 euros, and then has discount of 12 euros which equals 51 euros, the checkout does not use the total amount after the discount but before, therefore the user also gets free shipping
which my clients do not want.
What my clients want is that the free limit amount uses the total amount of the order after discounts (51 euros).
How can I set the free shipping limit to use the order total amount (51 euros) and not the total amount before discounts.

Could I ask, has a patch been created for this overlooked issue.

I too have a client who is desperate for a resolution.

What I have noticed myself is that the discount is not applied to the total of the item and this is what maybe causing the issue.

eg.. Descripition - Price - Qty - Discount - Remove - Total in your cart

If Price is £24.99 and 25% is discounted (£6.24) then the Total should in theory show £18.71 and not £24.95 as it currently does.

Could you let me know an answer or workaround ASAP!!

Kind Regards

Hi Mark,

Sorry, this is the ago old story of workload over time!

I'll have a quick look to see if we can implement anything in the next release, but it's only going to happen if it's a quick simple fix.

The issue on the free limit, could tricky to keep backward compatibility, we might bee to create a flag, as for the totals displaying, I'm unsure I'll look.

Where do I find this flag?

Quick method is to open one of the existing shipping settings that has a yes/No radio button, change the name to shippinglessdiscount.flag and save it

Otherwise create the setting from scratch via the settings page add/new button.Rob
