To Turn on Automatic Fulfillment or Not?

You can either automatically fulfill Shopify orders or manually fulfill them. Either way works perfectly with FBA Shipping by ByteStand. You just need to update your Shopify settings to tell your store what you want to do.
These settings are in your Shopify Admin under settings >> checkout >> order processing

When you get there, you are presented with the options outlined below.

automatic order fulfillment for shopify

Shopify Functionality Overview

This is a Shopify functionality. This is not controlled by the FBA Shipping app. This setting applies to all orders. There is not a way to only make automatic fulfillment on Shopify FBA orders and not also mark all other orders as fulfilled as well.

Choosing the Right Fulfillment Method

If you fulfill some orders through Amazon and some orders manually, we suggest that you choose the setting that fits the majority of your orders.

Manual Orders Majority

If most of your orders are manual that you must ship out, we suggest turning off automatic fulfillment. At that time you would have to click ‘Request Fulfillment’ on each FBA order. But, you could accurately mark your manual orders as complete when appropriate.

FBA Orders Majority

If most of your orders are FBA orders we suggest you keep automatic fulfillment turned on so you only have to check on your few manual orders!

At this time, we are not aware of a way to ‘Hold Fulfillment’ of orders.

When setting up your Shopify store for automatic or manual fulfillment, it’s important to consider the associated costs, such as FBA multi channel fulfillment fees. These fees can impact your overall profitability and should be factored into your fulfillment strategy.
