    I often offer free shipping.

    I am adding some new items that sell for less than $1.00.

    I want to prevent an order at check-out for less than $5.00 to prevent loosing money because of shipping charges.

    How do I implement a minimum order of $5.00 requirement?

    If there's a link, please provide that also.

    Just wanted to offer an option Lynn - if you would ship these $1 items with a shipping fee... you could set up what you would need for shipping to say ship 4 of these $1 items... Then as a general rule... make shipping free with a $5 or more order. If the free shipping with a certain dollar amount option isn't in the shipping tab, it is in the discounts tab in cart setup. Hope that helps!
