Doing this will reduce your promotion cost and increase your sales cap. It will also attract more customers to your offer.

10) Free Shipping Offers

The most effective way to grab your customer quickly in any eCommerce business is to provide "FREE SHIPPING." Most popular brands also do the same strategies by making some combo offers with free shipping to generate more revenue.
