How Magento 2 Free Shipping Bar works

Free Shipping Bar extension helps delivering information straight to the customer. The bar takes little space, takes little time to set up, and makes a huge difference. The bar is a reminder of an additional value - the free shipping - customer gets by spending more.

It reaches customers throughout the whole shopping experience, at all store pages, leaving none unattended. The extension automatically calculates difference between current cart total and the free shipping goal, making customers always aware of the opportunities they have. You can stick it to the header, footer or display as a regular block at the top or bottom of the page.

Case Studies on how to :

Increase conversion

Problem statement

More and more customers are expecting free shipping to be available at the stores. According to the recent polls, some 88% of customers are more likely to buy from the store offering free shipping. It is a 88% purchase decision, the storeowner cannot afford to lose.

The problem is not with offering a free shipping, the problem is to deliver this message to customer. Without successfull communication any added value is a lost profit.


Aheadworks is glad to offer Free Shipping Bar Magento 2 extension to compensate the lack of storeowner-customer communication. It's not an annoying pop-up, it's not a static block so easily forgotten, it is a neat reminder that stays wherever customer goes.

The messages in the bar are aimed at notifying customers how much more they need to spend to get the free shipping, and what is the free shipping goal. The bar can be displayed throughout the whole store navigation process, covering all basic customer's actions and reminding that the finish line with the free shipping is few buck away. Free shipping bar is set up in few minutes, using most popular Google fonts, and the background color picker. Additionally it supports custom CSS, to make it fit the store theme. Making it a simple and straightforward solution to deliver the information.


From the first steps at the store customers become aware of the free shipping opportunity and are informed about how much more they need to spend to get it. Allowing storeowner, with few minutes spent on extension configuration, convert more carts into orders, by offering one of the most relevant marketing opportunities - the free shipping.

Increase average order value

Problem statement

Customers know what they want, and despite tempting sales and limited offers tend to shop for what they have come for. To increase average order value the storeowner has to offer something more than just a discount, which are considered as a given nowadays.


Free Shipping Bar extension allows sending subtle messages to customers tempting to add more items to the cart to get free shipping. Imagine:

1) Customer has added a nice jacket to the cart, totaling $60;

2) Customer sees a message popped at the store header: "Only $15 left for free shipping!";

3) Customer is now browsing the store looking for a pretty scarf to come with the jacket.

Customer has just spent 25% more he intended to, just to get the free shipping. As you can see, it was not a special offer, it was not a discount, it was an added value, - something that worth more than a discount.


With the help of Free Shipping Bar, by reminding customers how much more they need to spend to get additional benefit, storeowner increases average order value.

I would love to pay for advanced version

Works great on multilingual store, but I would love spend an extra bucks for an advanced version, which would allow setting different colors for different websites. I hope this is something that Aheadworks will add in the future.

Works as advertized

A tiny single-purpose mod which, however, does its job very well.
Nice undocumented feature is a support of html in the messages allows adding a link to the "details" page.
During the purchase I have to enter our url. Does this extension only work on 1 installation? Because we have a development environment and a production environment.
Our EULA allows using the extensions on a single production and as many dev or staging sites as you need without a need of purchasing an extra license.
What is aheadworks policy on supporting its modules? Specifically if a security vulnerability is found will aheadworks create a patch?
Our extensions come with included support period and we are able to provide technical assistance when the support is active.
As for security vulnerabilities and bugs, we are trying our best to fix them free of charge regardless of the support period status.
This extension for Magento 2 supports Saudi riyal currency and Arabic Language?
If your currency and language is natively supported by Magento 2, the extension will also support it.
However, to work with RTL most likely some style adjustments will be required and you will need to translate some options the same way as you did with your Magento.
Does the extension support full page caching?
Since full page cache is a native Magento 2 feature, all our extensions for this platform support it.
I run Magento 1.X. Will my currently installed extensions from aheadWorks work in Magento 2?
Due to a significant difference between Magento 1 and Magento 2 branches, the extensions for M1 will not work in M2.
However, the owners of the extensions by Aheadworks for Magento 1 can get 25% discount on purchase the same extensions by AW for M2
Which URL do I specify on checkout if I've got only a development store at the moment?
You need to enter a final address of the site when it will go live.

If the domain name is still under consideration at the moment of purchase, you can enter an address of your dev environment. In this case, don't forget to contact us when the final domain name has been registered: our support team will change it by your request.
I run Magento 2 on AWS with ELB (Elastic Load Balancers) do I need a license per EC2 instance? They are all behind the same domain.
Such setup is considered to be a single Magento environment, so you need only one license.
