- Set “Coupon” to one of the available selections:

- Setting to “Specific Coupon” is to use a coupon with the price rule.
- Then, you need to complete some settings in the panel on the left. Choose “Actions”. Under “Pricing Structure Rules”, set 3 categories: “Apply” to “Percent of product price discount”, “Free Shipping” to “For shipment with matching items” and “Apply to Shipping Amount” to “Yes”.
- Then, in the panel on the left, choose “Labels”. You need to do one of the following:
Enter a “Default Rule Label for All Store View”.

After clicking the … “more” link, you need to enter a threshold value for the Subtotal to complete the condition.

#Step 3: Test the rule
Being the last step, testing is an important step. Many people skip this step because they think that it is not necessary, even time-consuming. On the contrary, if not tested, when applied, something wrong can happen.
After creating a new price rule, the system offers about an hour or so to become available. You should not interrupt this process that can cause some errors. So, make sure to allow enough time for the system to integrate it. Then keep in mind to test the rule. That test is taken to make sure that the rule might work correctly.
