Partial Fulfillment and Advanced Fulfillment Use Cases
Do you have an advanced fulfillment use case? EasyRoutes allows you to select any fulfillment that you've created for use as a delivery route.
Here's an example below. EasyRoutes supports the use of manually and or partially fulfilled orders in your delivery routes. To do so, you will first need to partially fulfill your order in Shopify and then select that fulfillment from inside of EasyRoutes.
How to Manually or Partially Fulfill an Order in Shopify
- From your Shopify admin, go to Orders.
- Navigate to the desired order.
- Click Marked as fulfilled on a fulfillment section of this order.
- From the Fulfillment page, set the number of products that you want to fulfill for each line item in the Items section.
- Click Fulfill items. The order screen updates to display the order's Fulfilled and Unfulfilled items.
Note: Shopify does not allow you to partially fulfill Shopify Local Delivery orders. If you have a Local Delivery order you want to fulfill, you will need to Duplicate the order and work with that order for your routing.
