Free Shipping Rate for Orders over $30 within a Country - Multiple Item Shipping Classes

  1. Create a new Shipping Rate (for each item with a shipping class you want to meet the Minimum [Scheduled Order] Subtotal condition) and give it a name (for example, "Large ", "Small", etc.) within QPilot Merchant Center > Dashboard >> Shipping Rates.

  2. Enter the shipping class that matches the "slug" of the shipping class for the Product (for example: small/large)
