I help run 2 growing shopify stores and wanted to know the best way to fulfill orders more efficiently and effectively.
At the moment we are clicking each order individually and fulfilling them which is very time consuming when doing 20-50 orders daily.
Any exsiting set ups , or step by step guides on running a medium sized online store ?
First off, congratulations on your growing shopify store!
If you're handling 20-50 orders daily, you should strongly consider outsourcing fulfillment. You're at the point that your time will be better utilized doing something else, and there are fulfillment companies like ShipMonk (go us!) who can help solve these problems for you.
We integrate directly with Shopify, so the whole thing will be seamless -- basically "set it and forget it" -- and we can notify you about any snags in the process should they arise. Check us out, and even if ShipMonk isn't right for you, I hope you consider outsourcing fulfillment regardless.
Good luck out there!

There actually is a method to bulk fulfill orders in the Shopify Admin. The workflow is the same as using the Bulk Editor to edit many products at once. To do bulk fulfill your orders, head to the Orders tab and check the boxes to the left of the order number, select Bulk Actions and then Fulfill Orders. It will look like THIS.
Keep in mind that this option will only appear if you are Manually Fulfilling your items. If you aren't using Shopify Shipping (USPS, UPS) to purchase your labels, then you will still need to add manually tracking numbers to those orders. We have further information on this workflow HERE.

If your warehouse and fulfillment vendor is asking for access to your shop via API, then you will want to generate an API access key and password within the apps section of your admin. First, however, I would be sure to ask your fulfillment vendor what sort of access they need ie. fulfillment services, shipping rates, inventory etc. You will only want to grant permission for the sections that your fulfillment vendor will need.
To generate an API access key:
We also have a guide on this process here. Should you run into troubles be sure to follow back up and let me know!
