Mod That Turns "No Shipping" Into "Free Shipping"

It seems like this mod should already exist [in oc core....] but i cant find it anywhere...kinda strange.

Anyone got a quick fix to turn the "requires shipping > no" into a "free shipping" instead? Currently, setting "requires shipping" to "no" removes step 3 that asks for delivery address, which is not desirable for most free shipping situations. Unfortunately we have outgrown our weight based trigger, weights must be accurate even with free shipping (for feeds, bundles, cart weight, and other stuff).

I see a raw method to do this in code, but if there is already one out there it would be easier than reinventing the wheel ya know?

- "Requires Shipping > No" turns into Free Shipping
- Keeps step 3 in checkout (delivery address)
- Removes other methods if free

Thanks for your thoughts and time

I'd use a 'free shipping' extension rather than messing with the 'no shipping' option: ... 20shipping
(this search is just for the free ones, there are paid free shipping extensions too that may be more fully featured - there's one for $30 that does all sorts of stuff)

there might be parameters that you need to apply to the free shipping (for example, not allowing it for people in different geographical locations).

Yah saw those too, none of those do it, they are all a modifier on "spend X to get free shipping". All the forum posts too are like not very targeted to this.

Besides the 0 weight hack, Ive yet to see a mod to just plain and simple make "free shipping" available at product level. Not really looking to buy a shipping mod since we only need it for this single simple task (the rest of the shipping works fine in default OC). The over complexity of those extensive ship mods makes too much liability...they inject too much or extra DB fields with features you will never use.

Ill keep looking but im guessing it will have to be crafted :) Ill post it back here if successful!

I actually have had this on my list of extensions to create for a long time, and had some old partial code lying around. I took the time to finish it and package it up today, and released this:

Change Requires Shipping to Free Shipping
