    One of the most effective ways many online sellers have recorded great sales is by offering FREE SHIPPING. There are many benefits to offering free shipping: 
    
    Many Buyers Will Only Buy If There is Free Shipping- Many buyers come online to check out items passively with no intention of making a final purchase. However, on finding a seller who is willing to offer free shipping, a lot of buyers usually go ahead to close the sale and check out from their cart. Some buyers out rightly pay with their debit cards to ensure they don't lose out on the free shipping on offer.
    
    Buyers Spend More When There is Free Shipping-  Online buyers tend to spend a lot more than they budgeted for when there is free shipping as it puts them in a better mood. This increase in purchases is usually more noticeable around festive periods such as Christmas Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day Easter etc. As a seller, you can take advantage of the upcoming Easter period to offer free shipping to buyers that stay within your geographical location.
    
    NOTE: The choice to offer free shipping is OPTIONAL. However, if you choose to offer free shipping, you can consider offering on some specific items only and you can also choose to offer to buyers that are closer to your location.

    thanks ebere for the update. I've enabled free shipping on my store. however, i was shocked to find out my products are not even appearing in the search results. this is even after typing my product title in the search box and filtering by free shipping. i did so to see whether or not the badge has been enabled, instead i can't even find the listings to begin with. mind you, they've been approved and are live on the site.

    hello, 
    
    i'd like to ask if it is possible for a seller to offer free shipping on selected products. say for instance, a seller sells several products and wants to offer free shipping on some of them. 
    
    how does one go about this? the current system appears to affect all products the merchant is selling globally.
    
    an urgent reply is needed to this question. 
    
    thanks

    I would like to know how shipping charges will be like with the  courier companies under the new scheme. What shipping charges have you agreed with them, and will they recognize the arrangement in all their branches across the country?

    @Chika,
    Setting shipping charges will be available to Sellers by March 31st 2015. As a seller, offering free delivery on your products is a way to boost sales in your store, also bear in mind that you can decide to factor the cost of delivery into the price of the product.
    
    Note: The option of free delivery is a voluntary decision, Konga is not enforcing Merchants to offer free delivery.
