Frontend View


 
On the Frontend the customer will not immediately see the discount applied because it works off shipping rather than the cart total. Until shipping is calculated the discount cannot be applied. It's recommended that the Cart Shipping Estimator is left in so that customers get some visibility of the shipping promotion.
 
Discount Display on Cart Page

The discount is only applied if the customer selects the appropriate shipping method - Ground in this instance. On updating the total then the discount is applied.

 

Discount is applied

The discount will not be more than the cart subtotal.
Higher Cart Subtotal, higher discount applied.
