Hi Everyone,

I am struggling to understand how we can allocate orders between warehouses depending on the proximity of the shipping location from our warehouse location.

I don't know how you would determine the proximity from shipping location to warehouse, but if you're able to do it by country, state, or city, that's something we've done for people with Order Automator (I'm the lead developer). Basically they give us the list of parameters (for example, if order is from State A, B, or C, change location to X... etc).

Is this doable at a zipcode level? @JoesIdeas

@yashvc94 yes, any data available in the order, we can use as a condition to process.

This may not be an ideal approach (as you'd need some other software), but here's how one of our customers achieved what you're asking: How Toyworld built an omnichannel strategy | Starshipit
