in cart price rules, can someone explain whats the difference between

"For matching items only"

and

"For shipment with matching items"

i cant seem to find a good documentation for this. you set a condition on when it should apply. but whats the purpose on changing the free shipping dropdown.

this is located on the "Actions" section

There is a combination of specific conditions for each scenario and the result will be somewhat different. In order to properly see the difference, my cart rule doesn't offer a discount amount, its discount when applied is actually the shipping cost, so here is how i set my rule: enter image description here

So check my examples below in order to understand how this stuff works and what's the difference between the options:

  1. Rule has "For matching items only" and it's conditioned to a specific product category in the 'Actions' section + Free Shipping delivery method is disabled + Flat Rate enabled and set to fixed value 5 - in the cart page, you will see the following: enter image description here

As you can see, your shipping method remained 'Flat Rate', but the shipping cost displayed for it is 0.

  1. Rule has "For shipment with matching items" and it's conditioned to a specific product category in the 'Actions' section + Free Shipping delivery method is enabled and has setting Minimum Order Amount=99999 + Flat Rate enabled and set to fixed value 5 - in the cart page, you will see the following: enter image description here

In this situation, we are restricting the visibility of the 'Free shipping' method by adding a huge number of items 99999 in the method's settings so it's not visible until we satisfy the rules condition (my condition says that items have to be from specific categories).

  1. Rule has "For matching items only" and it's conditioned to a specific product category in the 'Actions' section + + Free Shipping delivery method is enabled and has setting Minimum Order Amount=99999 + Flat Rate enabled and set to fixed value 5 - in the cart page, you will see the following: enter image description here

As you can see here, your shipping method remained 'Flat Rate', but the shipping cost displayed for it is 0 AND the 'Free Shipping' method appears as well. So it's kinda the combination of the other two scenarios above.


Once I remove the items from my categories and add a new item from a different category, the rule is invalidated and only the 'Flat Rate' method appears alone: enter image description here
