Partially Fulfill Pick Up Orders

We’ve started to use the new pick up feature launched by shopify which was a nice addition and one we had wanted since migrating to shopify a year ago, but the feature is lacking the ability to fill orders partially. We manufacture custom products that clients may purchase online or in store with us while we also have goods that are readily available and often purchased at the same time. Without the ability to close orders partially this feature is becoming a problem as we cannot easily track items that are filled. Currently we’ve had to tag orders and add comments and are using spreadsheets to log items that aren’t filled. Please if anyone has found a solution that allows you to close out partial items in a pick up order reply here with the fix.

I think I can solve your problem with Order Automator. It's an app to automate order processing tasks. I led the development on it, and we often do custom features for stores if the app's current feature set doesn't solve the problem.

 

If that's appealing to you, send a contact from the app page with the details of exactly what you'd like automated, and someone from my team will help you solve your problem.

No we have not found a suitable APP to do this. We are still relying on tags, adding notes to orders and using an EXPORT to keep track of each line item. It is very tedious and a shame that a company of shopify's status dropped the ball on such an integral part of order fulfilment, especially at times like these when goods and services are taking longer to produce/ship.

I changed to Shopify in the new year, from WIX - as WIX was horrible for ecommerce. However, even WIX allows you to partially fulfill both pick up and shipped orders. 

I shouldn't have to pay more money each month for a simple request, it's really disappointing that Shopify hasn't figured this out yet, especially given COVID protocols and shipments being delayed. 

I've tried several apps to integrate but all of them are made for more complex fulfillment/dropshipping issues.  They should have the same backend solution they do for fulfilling a shipped order as they do for a pick up order. 

Please, if anyone comes across a solution - I'm all ears! This is a painfully tedious piece of inventory to manage.
