Does anyone know who to activate, enable, or choose self-fulfilment and shipment? I am starting a small company and I wouldn't stand for any extra fees, knowing that I will deliver only in my country, so I can manage.

But does anyone know how to start that, shipping by myself?

You will have a default fulfillment location (your business address or whatever you select) in Shopify to start. When new orders come in they will be fulfilled to that location.

 

Just ship the orders yourself and enter the tracking number in Shopify afterwards, it will mark the order fulfilled and send the notification to the customer with the tracking info.

how to set up the default location, I see that there are many options, including local delivery and local pick-up. Is it under custom order fulfilment? Because I am the one who is gonna fulfil it and ship it. can u describe more? Thank you.

The best thing to do is set up a Shopify store and make a test order. You will see how everything works.

 

I don't believe it's possible to remove a default location, there will always be a location assigned to an order. Every product that has inventory needs to have a location with inventory stocked, so just set the product to your location only and it will show up like that in the order.

Hello, @yusufSaeed ,

 

Fulfilling Shopify orders manually is a straightforward task.

 

The more complex aspect involves devising a shipping strategy. I've outlined a few key points to help you get started.
