We offer Free Shipping over X (NOK 1000)amount, but the shopping cart rule doesn't allow me to set the amount to be the subtotal amount AFTER given discounts.

If customer shops with for instance a discount code, Magento gives the free shipping even if the subtotal after discounts amounts to for example NOK 850.

Is there anywhere in the shopping cart rule I can adjust this? (I have looked around for quite some time now...)

  • What kind of shipment method do you use? Does it offer an option to set a free shipping amount? Those generally calculate on the final amount – Sander Mangel Jun 23 '15 at 12:12
  • Thanks for your reply Sander. We do have a freightmodule that offer an option to set free shipping, but that isnt't used. Just enabled so that I can offer free shipping in for example codes and cart rules. But I tried now to use that instead, but also this one calculated based on the subtotal, rather than the total amount. So I guess, that leaves me out of options? – joey Jun 24 '15 at 7:57
  • the issue with grand total is that it depends on shipment totals to be calculated so it would basically go into an infinite loop of calculations if you tie them together I guess. – Sander Mangel Jun 24 '15 at 8:00
  • Found this: Rule Information: - No Coupon Code - Priority 0 Conditions: -If any of these conditions are true: -Subtotal equal or greater than 100.00 -Subtotal is 0.00 Actions: -Everything set to 0 or no except Free Shipping which you set to "For Matching Items Only" I've had free shipping rules like this setup for some time and have not encountered any issues with their total (after coupons) going below the free shipping amount and still having the free shipping apply. – joey Jun 24 '15 at 11:01
  • @SanderMangel But this didn't work at all... Thanks for your comments. – joey Jun 24 '15 at 11:03

I managed to fix this problem by changing the sort order of totals in the checkout process. System > Configuration > Sales > Checkout Totals Sort Order I have Discount sort order set to 10 and Subtotal set to 20. This way the Subtotal will contain the discount even when the shopping cart price rule is processed

  • I cannot find this setting under Magento ver., will you please let me know which version you were using. – Adnan Dec 7 '17 at 4:10
  • @Adnan all 1.9 versions should have this options. Does your user have access to these settings? – Alex Dinca Dec 7 '17 at 10:12
  • Ah I was looking under Config > Sales (tab) and it is actually under Config > Sales (tab) > Sales (link) Checkout Totals Sort Order :) Thanks @AlexDinca – Adnan Dec 7 '17 at 19:18

I've done something similar on my site and it calculated based off the total rather than sub-total. This was done via the Conditions tab, as per below:

  • This will only apply if one SKU is above 100 😁 – jehzlau Jun 16 '17 at 11:43
