i have a requirement where i would like to sell a product on my e-commerce website, send it to a store from where the customer could pick the product. For this, the store would need to look for the order in the system (store view), where it would only see the orders which were meant to be picked up only in this store. Once found and handed to the customer, the store should be able to fulfill/complete the order. I have something like 50 such stores which can process my orders. No POS sale, just from my online business.
Could someone please help me out if this would be possible to achieve somehow ? Using any app or default feature in shopify itself. Thanks a lot and have a great week ahead.
If you want the store to be able to log in and fulfill the order, you (or my team if you don't have a developer) could create a custom app that mimics the order page you see, but have separate logins for each store that restricts them to only see the orders from there store.
For a lower cost solution, you could set up a system where the store gets notified. For example, if Product X is sold by Store Y, you can use Order Automator app to create a rule that automatically sends the order details to that store you assigned to the product (or product type, fulfillment location, etc).
I'm the lead developer on that app, so if you need a customized solution feel free to reach out.
Hope your issue has been solved.
If you are still looking for a solution, I would like to recommend you to try out this app Deliix Store Pickup.
With the app, you can add many physical stores' locations for pickup to your e-commerce site. It also supports order fulfilment feature which you can view, manage order status, edit pickup and customer information, etc.
Fortunately, it also provides a free version so that you can take time and test out the app as long as you want.
Here are some screenshots of the app:
Thanks a lot for taking out time to reply to my question. I understand that it is possible to add stores by using 'Deliix store pickup' but i am not sure if it also provides a way for each store to fulfill their specific orders without having access to orders for other stores. I wanted to give it a try but could not connect to Deliix using my store 'groceryexperience.myshopify.com'. it gives me an error saying 'Oops! Something went wrong!!' . Could you please help.
In any case, i think JoesIdeas was able to understand my requirement and his proposal of having custom app looks good. Could you please give little idea on how to just get started for such a custom app ? I am not sure how much such a custom app would cost, could you please send me some quotation to my email address: email@example.com
For your second solution, i am not sure if that would be suffice because even if the store get notified, i wanted the store to validate and confirm the order, i think that would not be possible without the store either calling us or have access to the orders.
