Hi Sam! How are you?
May I ask you a question, please?
My Google Merchant Center does not give mi a chance to creare a Free Shipping Promotion without a Promo Code (my client has Free shipping over 800$ spending).
I could ask my client to create in Shopify that Promo Code bua I’m not sure that customers will remember this code during all the bying process.
In your opinion, what is she best solution here?
Thanks!

Hi Elena,

If we’re talking about Google Merchant Center promotions, the code is optional for percent and amount off promotions, but not for the free shipping promotion. You’ll have to create a coupon code for free shipping to be eligible for shopping promotions.

Hi Sam,

great lesson. Thanks.

I’m having an issue with creating free shipping promotion cause google asks for the code even though my customers don’t need one in order to get free shipping. Do you know how to overcome this?
