Splitting BigCommerce Orders

For a general walkthrough on creating email templates and rules for dropship orders, please see this guide.

Shopify and BigCommerce make splitting orders a little more convenient with a few built in features. This guide will show you how to set up your products in each cart so that Order Desk can automatically split your orders by vendor.

Splitting Shopify Orders

1
Set a vendor for each dropshipper within Shopify. You can see your vendors from the Products page:

 Click on the product to add or change the vendor.

2
Back in Order Desk, click on Shopify under Integrations in the left sidebar.

In the Shopify Settings, turn on the Automatically Split Orders for Multiple Vendors option.

Return to the  general guide for instructions on how to set up vendor email templates and rules that specify when to email vendors.

Tip: If your Shopify theme shows the vendor in the design, you can either remove it, or give the vendor a generic name like "Acme On Demand Services" or "Acme On Demand Printing."

Splitting BigCommerce Orders

1
Put the name of a vendor for each product in BigCommerce. To do this, click on Other Details:
Add the vendor name to the  Bin Picking Number field. 

If you are already using the Bin Picking Number field, you can enter the vendor followed by a dash and the existing bin picking number. Order Desk will use the code to the left of the dash as the vendor and save the code to the right of the dash as your bin picking number.

Orders will be hyphenated with a -x at the end. If order 1005 has items from two different vendors, it will be stored in Order Desk as 1005-1 and 1005-2.

2
Back in Order Desk, click on  BigCommerce under  Integrations in the left sidebar.

In the BigCommerce Settings, turn on the Automatically Split Orders for Multiple Vendors option.
