fulfillment based on country using locations

Hi,

 

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.

 

  • There is currently one online shop for US and EU.
  • The US warehouse and the EU warehouse both have their own stock.
  • The US warehouse only fulfills orders that are for the US and Canada but the EU warehouse fulfills all EU orders. 

 

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?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

Yes I've already installed your app. But the thing is in case the Customer typed location and the location which I've set in the rule is not matched, the stock won't be moved to that particular location.

Eg: Customer typed location as Boralla and rule location Borella, mismatch, but its the same location, so better if I can get a droplist of location for the Customer to choose, then it'll just say out of stock if no stock in the particular location.

Hi @LOMIEbaby
I think we have a similar issue. I’m trying to set my store up in the same way with a UK based warehouse for European orders and an Australian one for the Southern Hemisphere. Would love to know if you found a solution?

Hi @LOMIEbaby 

 

I am in the exact same boat as you, have you managed to make this work?

@RKLondon1  Because of the COVID-19 situation we are unable to ship to NZ and AUS so we have temporarily suspended that side of the business. We are looking into resuming shipping there soon and I'm about to start looking into a solution for this matter again. I'll keep this thread updated if I can get it to work.

Hi Ghost apps

 

How does this work store front when the customer is looking at all the products if one particular  product is available in one country while out of stock in another. How would this show ? 

 

Or would you have to create a collection specific to that country?
