Free shipping AFTER discount?

    I have the cart set up so that any order over $50 gets free shipping.

    If someone places an order over $50, and then uses a discount code that brings the cost under $50, they get free shipping.

    Is there any way to set the cart so that it calculates shipping AFTER the discount is taken off the total order?

    Thanks for your time,

    Oh, I should mention that I only want free shipping for Standard delivery, but not for Express delivery.

    I'm using Advanced Shipping Options.

    Interestingly, when I only had one shipping method and used Standard Shipping Options, the free shipping seemed to be calculated AFTER the discount.

    Now that I switched to Advanced shipping (to add Express) it now seems to calculate the shipping BEFORE the discount.

    All I can add is that using standard shipping probably the only way to have different 'free shipping over' rates for different zones is when shipping is based on order value rather than on weight.

    In that case, you may be able to set up a final row in the 'Standard delivery' zone table that subtracts an amount, resetting shipping to zero.

    Some shipping help documents are available at
