How do I use the “Free Shipping – Domestic Only” option in the Shipping Settings page?

In your 3dcart Online Store Manager, you will find a series of Shipping Settings that can be found by going to Settings ->Shipping and then clicking on the “Enter Settings” button under the “Carrier Settings” section.

Once there, click on the + Icon next to “Shipping Settings to reveal a series of checkboxes. Within this area you will see a checkbox titled “Free Shipping – Domestic Only

This option will limit your store’s automatic Free Shipping function* so that it applies only to your store’s domestic orders. International shipping charges can be expensive, and having this setting enabled will limit the free shipping so that it applies only to shoppers in your country of origin.

So, how do I specify my Domestic area?

Your store’s Domestic Shipping area will be controlled by the Country specified in your store’s Real Time Shipping Information section. This section can be found at the top of the Carrier Settings page and it will be labelled “Real Time Shipping Location.” Click on its + Icon to expand the selection and enter your Country of origin in the provided area.
