I'm trying to set up the following scenario but can't figure out what would be the best approach to set this up in Shopify.
I've been reading through the documentation regarding Shopify locations and that seems to be almost perfect. The only thing that seems to be missing is that you can not assign orders based on country to a specific location. As far as I can see this is only priority based. Working without location-based stock would mean that we have global stock and cannot show accurate if a product is available in the EU for example.
The quick-fix seems to be to create a US store and an EU store but I was wondering if there is anything possible to achieve this in one store?
I'm pleased to announce Location Based Fulfillment (name needs some work I know) I now available in the App Store!
Please install it and check it out, let me know if you have any issues or features you would like to see
Can you tell me how stock levels will work?
US Store has 400 of product A
CA Store has 0 of product B
Is this how it will work?
Customer goes to store, see's product, adds to cart, goes to check out and enters address. If customer enters a US address then all good. If customer enters a Canada address then he see's out of stock msg.
Is there a way to capture country when the first land in the store?
I can see a lot of Shopify store owners are facing this issue, and according to my research, unfortunately there is no reliable solution out there.

Hi guys, just wanted to update you on Location Based Fulfillment https://apps.shopify.com/location-based-fulfillment
Thanks to new APIs that Shopify have released, it now can move orders between locations (i.e. warehouses) fully automatically as soon as the order is created or paid for.
Please check it out and let me know what you think, I really think this will solve a lot of people's problems with fulfillment in different countries.
I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but to me it sounds like you are looking for functionality already built-in to Shopify.
shipping profiles outline shipping rules for groups of products
shipping zones outline which locations can deliver where and through what carrier/service levels.
shipping profiles contain shipping zones so you have pretty specific control of how any given product is shipped.
(Separate inventories per location is also built-in)
- I currently have a store that has my NY warehouse handling orders shipping to US locations, and my Toronto warehouse handling orders shipping to Canadian locations.
- Additionally, I have certain products that are only shipping to US and others only shipping to Canada.
To note: You need to make sure your setup is correct otherwise Shopify will fall back onto its default fulfillment location priority.
If warehouse A shouldn't send to Canada then make sure that the Shipping Zone created for warehouse A does NOT include canada as a destination because any overlaps in shipping zones between two locations will just fall back on fulfillment location priority.
