Splitting an Order


Overview

The Split Order action divides an order into two separate orders. This is useful when order items need to be shipped to separate destinations or when a partial payment is paid.

Orders can be split in Sellercloud or in Shipbridge.


Split Orders in Sellercloud

The Client Setting Enable Split Order Authorized Payment Workflow allows split orders to be marked as paid when they are created.
  1. Go to Orders > Manage Orders, and open an order.
  2. From the Actions menu, select Split Order.The image shows the Actions Menu Split Order option.
  3. Enter the quantity you want to move to the new order and click Split Order.The image shows the window Quantity to Split to New Order.
By default, all split orders retain the order source (i.e., Amazon). This can be controlled per channel from Settings > Orders > Order Split Setting.
To prevent a double shipping confirmation on the order source, the OrderSourceOrderID will not transfer to the split order. When the first order is shipped, the order on the channel will be marked as shipped, even if part of the order is not yet shipped.
When splitting an order with kits, you should only select and split quantities from the kit components. Do not select and split the parent components.
