You can add a percentage discount or price discount on the shipping methods amount. For example, spend at least 100$ and get a 50% discount on the shipping amount, or spend at least 200$ and get a 100% discount on the shipping amount (Free Shipping).
Why Offer Shipping Discounts Coupons for Customers in WooCommerce?
Offering a discount on shipping methods is one of the best strategies that work well. You can offer shipping coupons for your wholesale customers to make them happy because wholesale customers expect to get better prices and benefits than retail customers.
