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

With different order ids, customers can view all the order ids in their Order History and track each item separately. The admin can generate separate invoices and shipments for each order id. The Shipping charges and the taxes are also split based on items.


Use Cases of Split Order On Checkout:

A) Default Condition:

In our Split Order extension, if you apply ‘by default’ condition, the order gets split irrespective of any attribute. For Example: If any order has 4 products then the order will split into 4 different orders no matter what attribute is chosen.

B) Split if Attribute exists:

When we apply this condition, the order splits only when a 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.

For an Example: 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.

Just like in our previous example if none of the product out of the 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 the Attribute:

When we apply this condition, the products which are having the same attribute will be clubbed into a single order. The different orders will be created for the different attributes and the products which don’t have the chosen attribute associated with them, will be clubbed into a single order.

Let’s take an example: If an order has 6 products out of which 2 products have desired attribute associated to them and rest 4 have no desired attribute, so now the order will split into 2 different orders such as

  1. Products with desired attribute
  2. Products without the desired attribute


We can also understand this with the given case:

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 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

Note: 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.
