How can I avoid customers being charged twice for shipping at Checkout

I have a client with a Shopify store that has 2 locations. The physical inventory could be in Location A or B, there is no central warehouse.

 

This is set up as a customer could order an item that is located in Store A, or place an order that has items from Store A and B ( the owner would need to transfer the physical item ordered from Store B to Store A so the customer can pick the full order from 1 location.

 

Because the Stock is not in a Warehouse Location, when an online order is placed and the items are from Store A and Store B the customer gets charged 2 sets of shipping when the are at checkout

 

How can I work around this? Is there a way to only charge the customer Shipping once? Or maybe setup the location pickup process in a more streamlined way?

 

I hope this make sense?

Hi there,

 

I think Shopify just launched a feature for that: https://community.shopify.com/c/blog/introducing-smart-order-routing/ba-p/2128121

Is there a way to then stop the shipping being charged twice if the order has 2 items from 2 locations?

I don't think so. I wasn't able to find a way to do that using smart order routing.
