    When I change “Free Shipping for Orders Over” to any number, the shipping no longer shows up.

    I cannot add free shipping for orders over 1, for instance. It wipes out the shipping cost completely. I’ve tried other numbers as well. It just does not want to work if there is any integer other than 0 in that field.

    I did uninstall & reinstall this plugin to see if that helped. It did not. I’m assuming it is a bug at this point.

    Any suggestions?

  • An add-on to this. I enabled WP debugger and the following appeared upon submission of the settings in the admin area.

    OK, I got it working…

    Using the “[wp_cart:My Cool Product:price:16.95:shipping:0.001:end]” Works when nothing is added in the “Free Shipping for Orders Over”.

    Using the example shortcode does not work for having free shipping beyond “x” number of items. (e.g. [wp_cart_button name=”Test Product” price=”29.95″ shipping=”4.00″])(or any variation of this).

    I’m going to leave this as unresolved, but I do have it working, at least.

    This worked for me too.
    It should be good if the developer specify thi sintax for the shortcode instead of that on the demo.

    Hi, can you tell me syntax works and which one doesn’t so I can see where the actual issue is?

    Hi, thanks for your help, so this is the one that works:


    with this one the shipping price were not calculated nor added on checkout:

    [wp_cart_button name=”MyProduct” price=”10″ shipping=”0.001″]

    I just tested both the above shortcodes and they both work fine. So I don’t see any issue.

    Can you create a test page on your site and put both those shortcodes on the page and share the URL of that page so I can take a look?

    for me the official shortcode syntax didn’t work and the one suggested here did.
    thanks! I was unable to add shipping costs otherwise.

    Can you tell me which version you are using and what exact shortcode you entered?

    I’m using WordPress version 3.9 and WP Simple Paypal Shopping cart v3.9.5.
    I was using the [wp_cart_button name=”Test Product” price=”119″ shipping=”4.0″] shortcode but it did not add the shipping cost.
    I changed it to [wp_cart:Test Product:price:119:shipping:4.0:end] and now it works.

    I just tested that exact shortcode and it worked for me. Did you by any chance entered a value in the “Free Shipping for Orders Over” field?

    no. I did not enter a value in the “Free Shipping for Orders Over” field.

    I had same issue…shipping wouldn’t show up using either short code. I figured out I had typed a $ sign in the “Free Shipping for Orders Over” field, and once that was removed, the problem was solved.

    $200 wrong
    200 right

    For what it’s worth to anyone, maybe this will help.
