Free shipping

Sellers using the Mercado Envios shipping module, mode 1 or mode 2, are able to list items offering one of the shipping methods for free. This type of shipping has some benefits: it is a superior shopping experience for the buyer, it is highlighted in the search results, and buyers can filter listings that offer free shipping.

Products with free shipping

curl -X GET 'Authorization: Bearer $ACCESS_TOKEN'  https://api.mercadolibre.com/items/$ITEM_ID

The free_shipping field, boolean, indicates whether the queried item has free shipping or not.

{
   "shipping":{
    "mode":"me2",
    "local_pick_up":true,
    "free_shipping":true,
    "free_methods":[
    ],
    "dimensions":null
   }
}

Offer free shipping mode for the all country

Example:

{
"title": "Titulo del item",
...
"shipping": {
  "mode": "me2",
  "local_pick_up": false,
  "free_methods": [
  ]
}
}

Offer free shipping for custom shipping

For countries where Mercado Envios is active, you can add custom shipping free in categories that do not accept ME.

"shipping": {
        "mode": "not_specified",
        "local_pick_up": false,
        "free_shipping": true,
        "methods": [],
        "costs": []
    }
