Hey, @Dawsie1339.

Elias here with Shopify Support. Thank you for reaching out.

I understand you're using CustomCat and you have your store set to automatically fulfill orders; however, the items are not being shipped out by your POD. Do you have a payment method set up through their app?

Typically, when an order is processed through Shopify, the payout is deposited directly to your account by your payment gateway and does not include the service fees for POD. However, you can add a payment method to pay for their services and see if there's an option for automatic fulfillment on their app. It's also important to note that when I was looking at CustomCat's Orders and Fulfillment FAQs, I noticed that they require the order status to be Open or Unfulfilled - so you may actually need to disable automatic fulfillment on Shopify's end for their app to work properly. 

If you'd like more information on managing orders with CustomCat, I found a handy video (4th video) in CustomCat's Tutorials, and if you need any further assistance with order fulfillment - you can always always reach out to them here: Contact CustomCat.

I hope this points you in the right direction to get help on order fulfillment with your POD. Let me know!
