We want to fulfill drop-ship orders from one 3-PL and direct to consumer orders from another 3-PL, is that possible?

Yes it is possible to receive orders into two different 3PL Locations.

It becomes difficult when you want to update the order after it has been shipped as it often comes back with an error regarding the stock is not managed from that location.

Are the 3PL services in different countries?

We at Storeship often advise to set different products from different zones so they can differentiate and reduce any problems further down the line, makes it a lot easier.

So, instead of orders, I will set up certain products to be fulfilled from certain locations.  Is that correct?

Yes, that is one way to do it, you can set Inventory managed by on each individual product.

Hello StoreshipUK, 

What happens when an order comes across for multiple products and the products are set up in both locations? Will it ship from both locations? How do we handle just the few items to test one location vs another location? 

It would be a lot simpler to separate the orders by location by the client.  Do you know if we can do that in Shopify Plus? 

Thanks

Hi, my app Simple Purchase Orders can definitely meet your shop's needs. It allows you to set up suppliers and import products and set cost prices. You can then automatically generate purchase orders from orders your customers make and it will import all of the items they order and their address and email it to your supplier. It can also handle splitting orders into multiple POs where the items have different suppliers. This should help you reduce time spent fulfilling orders and eliminate mistakes.

Please check it out and let me know if you have any questions
