Advanced Split Order On Checkout extension, allows splitting an order into separate orders. This extension can be used to split an order automatically into multiple orders based on some product attribute or the number of items in the cart. The customer will receive different order ids for their ordered cart.

Customers can view all the ids of all of the order that have been split in their Order History and track each item separately. The admin can generate separate invoices and shipments for each order id. Shipping charges and tax are also divided among multiple orders based on items.

We can create various Admin Users and restrict their roles based on the assigned attribute option, admin user whose role is restricted based on certain attribute option will only see the orders related to the attributes assigned to him only.These admin users can then also filter these results based on the attributes assigned to them through a dynamic filter provided in our custom column of ‘Split Attribute’.

It is a great tool to coordinate and control work of different admin users. Admin users will be able to see only orders of product attributes assigned to them and will know exactly what orders they are responsible for. This will reduce confusion and misunderstanding between your staff members. And will significantly increase speed and quality of order processing.


Use Cases of Advanced Split Order On Checkout:


A) Default Condition:

When the condition is Default then the order is split irrespective of any attribute. Example: If any order has 4 products then the order is split into 4 different orders no matter what attribute is chosen.


B) Split if attribute exists:

When we enable this option, order splits only if any product contains selected attribute.If an attribute is assigned to any of the product and now we choose to place an order by adding the product having assigned attribute and along with that some other products, then our order will be split according to the number of products present in the order placed.

Like, if we have 6 products in an order out of which two products have assigned attributes then order will split in 6 different orders having different order ids. If none of the products in the order have the chosen attribute associated with them then the order won’t split at all.

Like, in our previous example if none of the product out of 6 products has the desired attribute associated with them then there will be a single order having all the 6 products.


C) Split according to attribute:

In this condition products having the same attribute will be clubbed into a single order and different orders will be created for different attributes also the products that do not have the chosen attribute associated with them will be clubbed into a single order.

Like, if an order has 6 products out of which 2 products have desired attribute associated to them and rest four have no desired attribute, so now the order will be split into 2 different orders, one having products with desired attribute and one having products without the desired attribute. For example, our store has multiple warehouses and we want to split order based on warehouse options.

We can do this through our extension in following ways:-

We create a warehouse attribute.

In this warehouse attribute, we create various options like warehouse A , warehouse B and warehouse C.

This warehouse attribute is assigned to our used attribute set. We create products and assigned requisite warehouse.

Now a customer has placed an order with 5 products

a. Product A belongs to Warehouse B

b. Product B belongs to Warehouse A

c. Product C belongs to Warehouse A

d. Product D belongs to Warehouse C

e. Product E belongs to none of warehouses

In this case , our order will be split into 4 different orders:-

a. Order 1 having products of warehouse A, i.e Product B and C

b. Order 2 having product of warehouse B, i.e Product A

c. Order 3 having product of warehouse C, i..e Product D

d. Order 4 will be of none of the warehouses, i.e Product E


D.How does it work with various Admin Users

a. Various admin users can be created and various Roles need to be assigned to these.

b. The selected attribute will be visible in admin user as well and then selected attribute value can be assigned to the user.

c. The admin user will then be able to view orders related to the assigned attribute only.

Now if Admin User A is assigned attribute of Warehouse A then he will be able to see only the orders related to Warehouse A only.


 Note: Advance Split Order On Checkout will work with the Magento default payment methods that is Cheque / Money Order and Cash on Delivery. In the case of any 3rd party payment gateway, it may need some customization if the third party payment gateway code does not follow the default Magento payment module pattern.
