Transfer Inventory from Unfulfilled Orders

Transfer Inventory from Unfulfilled Orders

2 0 2

Hi there, 


I recently bought a company that has been using Shopify for years. There were several unfulfilled orders pending when I made the purchase. I picked up all the inventory and moved it to another state where I live. I am able to transfer the "uncommitted" inventory to my new location in the system, but I cannot move the inventory from the unfulfilled orders. This is crucial as I need to be able to print shipping labels with the correct amount of postage. The system still thinks the product is in the original location and is calculating shipping based on that location. Please help! I need to get this product shipped!

To resolve the issue with unfulfilled orders and update the inventory location in Shopify, you can follow these steps:

1. Log in to your Shopify admin.
2. Go to the "Orders" section and find the unfulfilled orders that need to be shipped.
3. Open each order and click on "More actions" > "Mark as fulfilled."
4. In the fulfillment details, update the shipping address and select the appropriate fulfillment service (e.g., USPS, UPS, FedEx).
5. Enter the tracking number and any other relevant shipping details.
6. Save the fulfillment and repeat this process for all the unfulfilled orders.

By marking the orders as fulfilled, you'll be able to generate shipping labels with the correct postage amount based on your new location. The system will update the fulfillment status and reflect the inventory in the correct location.

If you encounter any issues or if the shipping rates are still incorrect, you may need to review your shipping settings in Shopify and ensure that the correct shipping zones, rates, and inventory locations are configured for your new location. You can access the shipping settings in your Shopify admin under "Settings" > "Shipping and delivery."

If you need further assistance or if the issue persists, it's recommended to reach out to Shopify support for personalized help with your specific account and settings. They will be able to provide guidance and troubleshoot any issues related to your inventory and shipping.

Are you able to edit the location within Shopify to update the address to your new locations address? This wont move the inventory per say but should allow you to generate the correct postage cost when printing shipping labels?
