I only accet local delivery through my store and I am using the new Shopify local delivery function to facilitate this.
I need however a way to be able to partially fulfill an order that comes thgrough with this shipping method.
There doesn't appear to be an option.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
I also need to know how to partially fulfil orders that are linked to local delivery.
We just had process near 6000 items sold through about 300 orders, and we had to keep track of fulfilment in an excel sheet because there is no such partial fulfilment for local delivery.
This has been a substantial additional expense and waste of resource to our business, not to mention error prone as well.
Shopify, why is this functionality not available?
I contacted support about this and they said that Local Delivery is only designed for products that are in stock:
I looked into this for you and local delivery is only available for products that are in stock, so what you would like to do is not currently possible in this system. I can submit a feature request for you. Our developers look at every one that we send up. There is no guarantee that this will become a feature of Shopify in the future but you can keep an eye on our updates here.
It may be worth you contacting them with a feature request too. To help raise awareness about this feature.
Its my understanding that fulfilment process is a different process to the shipping process under which local delivery delivery falls.
And good software design would have these processes [fulfilment and shipping] decoupled.
So with this in mind Im struggling to see how these are tied together, and why the fulfilment process has a dependancy on a shipping process [local delivery]?
