I have an order stuck on Partially Fulfilled. When I click into the order, I can see the unfulfilled item but I don't see the Fulfill button. The item is in stock, available online and requires shipping.
Initally, there were two items pending fulfillment. When I clicked on the Fulfill button ( it was showing then ), the popup didn't have a quantity box for the item above. Once I fulfilled the second itenm, the Fulfill Button disappeared.
Any idea how to move this order along?
Hello Michael, Ben here - your Shopify Guru!
That sounds a little odd, have you tried fulfilling the order using a bulk action.
Give that a shot let me know if that does the trick!
I hope this helps! Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions :)

Your store is actually working correctly :)
I hope this helps and if you need anything else at all please let us know!
I'm having this same issue. This is a really big problem and this isn't how it should be working. I just talked to a shopify representative about this issue. I cancelled the order before it was fulfilled. I can no longer fulfill the order. I archieved the order, but now if I want to see orders that haven't been fulfilled (which I frequently do), this ONE order will always exist in order screen because of how this system is "working as intended."
That's counter productive. I don't need to fulfill that order and it will always remain unfulfilled because the order no longer exists. I can delete the order, but then I don't have a record of the cancellation in my system.
If anything, shopify needs to allow you to manually trigger the "fulfilled" flag if the order is cancelled. The fact that it's been removed completely makes no sense.
Thanks so much for reaching out to us on the forums! I completely appreciate your frustration at not being able to mark your orders the way you wish to.
Fulfilment status is there to show if an order has been shipped to your customer and with a cancelled refunded order that can't be shipped, your admin keeps a record of that order as unfulfilled for your store.
Regardless of that, I can understand why you want to change the status. I want to put in a feature request to our developers with the aim that you'll be able to mark the orders the way that suits your business in the future. Do you think you'd prefer to see the status as cancelled or completed or something else in place of fulfilment status? Please let me know.
Cancelled, or if there's a return/wasn't sent Restocked might also work. Either way, anything other than "unfulfilled" is preferrable. Honestly, it doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you have dozens or more outstanding orders and you want to see which ones are "unfulfilled" this immediately becomes a big deal. It literally renders the "unfulfilled" status flag pointless the second that you have one cancelled unfulfilled order.
Hi Corbin and Sean,
Thanks so much for the feedback, I can 100% see the use case for this myself and think it makes so much sense! I have created a feature request for this now, and provided this forum post as reference.
