Remove Free Shipping From Prestashop 1.6 Shopping Cart !

(0 votes)

It may not look like a big deal but this is actually a headache for most Prestashop users, These days shipping prices can get a vistor to abandon store shopping cart within 1 second. If you want to check if this is true then log on to their backend and view the abandoned carts, though the reasons for the abandonment is not stated but common sense will tell any shop owner that if a customer whom had gone further to add the product to a cart really wants to know how much it will cost to purchase that product.  You would like the visitor to go further and make a decision during the checkout process.

Lets  sort out this fix

1. You want only logged in customers to access the shipping price? Then go to your default carrier and edit the group access by un ticking the Vistor and Guest options. This means that a guest or a visitor will not be scared away when they add a product to your cart.

2. You want to replace Free Shipping! text on the shopping cart? Go to > Localization > Translations > Choose Front Office Translations > Choose Theme(Usualy the Default)  > Choose Language > Then click on Modify > Scroll down to Edit 'Shopping Cart' Free Shipping option. You can set it to what you want or £0.00. > Save .

3. Go to Translations again > Installed Modules > Edit Shopping Cart. If your server warns you of Maximum PHP input for a form ? > Dont wory, then go to > Cpanel to edit the files from there. > Go to Cpanel, find the folder modules/blockcart/translations and edit Free Shipping option from there. Around line 21

$_MODULE['<{blockcart}prestashop>blockcart_c6995d6cc084c192bc2e742f052a5c74'] = 'Free Shipping';

$_MODULE['<{blockcart}prestashop>blockcart_c6995d6cc084c192bc2e742f052a5c74'] = 'CHANGE TO ANYTHING YOU WANT';


As at this post, this applies to Prestashop 1.6 version
