Tag orders if only one fulfillment location has been allocated

If you're looking to tag your orders based on whether a single fulfillment location has been allocated, then our Order has only one fulfillment location criteria is the one to use.

When is a single fulfillment location allocated?

Where a single location is able to fulfill an entire order, Shopify will automatically allocate the fulfillment to a single location.

Merchants have expressed that they wish to highlight orders that have single fulfillment locations to expedite the processing of these non-complex orders, so we built this criteria to help highlight those orders.

How to use the criteria

To create a workflow using this criteria, click on the Create New Workflow button from the main Workflows view:

Define the trigger to determine at which point you would like the workflow to run, we recommend selecting the trigger when orders are created.

Click the Add criteria to my workflow button:

The Order has only one fulfillment location criteria can be found within the Fulfillment category in the Select criteria pop-up window:

Click the Use in your workflow button to select this criteria.

There are no further conditions to select from:

Choose the name of the tag you'd like to see on all orders that match this workflow and enter it into the Add tags when the workflow matches section. In this example we have used the tag Single_fulfillment:

Click on the Add fixed tag button.

Saving and naming your workflow

It's worth giving your workflow a name to help you identify it at a later date, so add a workflow name in the New Workflow section, check the summary of your workflow and if happy, either Test your Workflow against an existing order or hit Save Workflow:

Any new order will now be checked to see if a single fulfillment location has been allocated to the order and, if so, the workflow will match and the fixed tag(s) that you specified will be applied to the order.


This criteria option will work when Backdating your orders, however, it will look at the order as it stands at the time of the backdate.

If you have split your fulfillments across multiple locations since the order was created, then this workflow will not match the order.

Dynamic Tagging

This criteria is not directly compatible with Dynamic Tagging, however, you can apply the name of any Allocated Fulfillment Location(s) that appear in an order using our Dynamic Tag feature:
