Two separate fulfillment partners?

How does anyone deal with the scenario of having products fulfilled by different partners? Our scenario is that partner 1 warehouse and ship products 1-3 and partner 2 will warehouse and ship product 4-6.

Is there a way to have partner 1 notified when their product sells and allow them access to the packing slip and shipping label?

I know how to achieve the order notification - you can use Order Automator for that. You'd set up a rule, for example if product vendor = Vendor X, then tag the order and email that vendor.

For the access to packing slip and ship label... I feel like I've seen an app that can do that, like give 3rd parties access to a portal to fulfill orders, without giving access to your actual Orders section in Shopify. I'm not 100% sure on that though.

My team built Order Automator, so we might be able to add that customization, depends on what the packing slip / ship label look like and where they're generated. If you can't find an app to do exactly that, and want to discuss a solution, feel free to contact our team at
