Hi all, 

I'm working with a client on a new Shopify site, and was wondering if anyone knows what happens if a customer places an order than contains both an in-stock item, and a pre-order item (probably set to inventory 0) to be fulfilled later. How does Shopify handle this? Will it be split up into separate orders?

An order as you describe will not be split into separate orders. Items in an order can be fulfilled separately, so if you shipped only one item, the order would show a fulfilled status of Partial. When you ship all items, it will show a status of Shipped.

Hope that helps!

I have a related question to this, hope you can help.

 

When looking at an order with mixed items (in stock and pre ordered). Is there some way you can tell which item is pre ordered or out of stock?

you can search your orders for the name of the pre-ordered items. once all the orders including this item pop up, you can choose tag these order with -a " pre-order items " label
