    It has been very surprising that Ship Station has not worked harder to implement this as it really would not be that technically difficult considering the other automation that they have.

    Our Solution:

    Our issue initially was that we have two warehouses, two shipstation accounts in different countries, and two wesbties. Each website offered the entire product selection from both warehouses, and sometimes the warehouses would carry the same product Skus. Our inventory management was lacking, so we had initially been adding prefixes to the Skus to denote which warehouse was supposed to ship the order. Then all orders were going into both ship station accounts, and the orders would be split/cancelled depending on which warehouse was supposed to ship the product. Yes, I know this sounds ridiculous and it was. But it was our first workaround attempt at figuring this all out.

    We operate on Shopify, and after much trial and error we found an inventory management system called "Duoplane" that solved our problem. Basically, the orders go from shopify to Duoplane. Duoplane knows where all of the products are located, and then creates a new PO for each warehouse and sends the appropriate items to be shipped by their associated warehouse.

    Duoplane's owner is very technically savy, and could likely help out with many of the issues noted here. I imagine that certain rules may be set up in duoplane to clump only certain products together on a single PO, or make every item on the Shopify order a separate PO when sent to Ship Station. This would automatically show it as three separate shippable orders in shipstation without any manual splitting.

    I hope this helps someone!

    We ship with multi location inventory from Shopify. I am very disappointed to see that Shipstation has yet to come to the table with a solution to this. I have found a multitude of forums where people are going nuts due to the inability to split orders automatically. Hopefully Shipstation will come to terms and work on this, or I am definitely taking both of my accounts elsewhere as soon as I find someone offering better solution than hours of unnecessary and redundant manual order splitting.

    PLEASE SHIPSTATION - Do something about this
