Different fulfillment for digital and physical products?

New Member

I sell PDF and printed paper copies of my quilt patterns, and have them set up as separate listings. I use Digital Downloads to auto-fulfill the PDF sales, but my physical product sales are already being marked as fulfilled and so I'm currently manually checking each order to make sure I don't miss any orders, and also customers aren't getting notified when products are shipped. 

 

One option to solve this, I believe, would be to have one listing with two variants, but that's not what I'm wanting to do because a lot of customers are frankly not very computer-savvy and are likely to select the wrong option, so having two listings makes it as easy as possible for my customers to choose which option they prefer. 

 

Is there another solution??

I can probably help, I've built a couple solutions for order automation / processing / fulfillment.

 

I couldn't tell exactly what the problem is, but it sounds like maybe this: 

a) "but my physical product sales are already being marked as fulfilled and so I'm currently manually checking each order to make sure I don't miss any orders".

- Assuming you don't want them to be marked fulfilled, you just need to turn off auto-fulfillment in Shopify settings, or a solution (I've built before) to only fulfill certain products?

 

 

b) "also customers aren't getting notified when products are shipped."

- There's a setting for this, that should be triggering a notification when the order gets marked fulfilled.

 

If you want, send me an email at joe@speedboostr.com with the solution you'd like / problem to solve and I'll see what I can do.
