Locations

You can set up multiple locations in your Shopify store so that you can track inventory and fulfill orders at your locations. Your locations can be retail stores, warehouses, popups, dropshippers, or any other place where you manage or stock inventory. With multiple locations, you have better visibility into your inventory across your business.

A location is a physical place or an app where you do any or all of the following activities: sell products, ship or fulfill orders, and stock inventory.

To make sure your inventory quantities are always accurate, online orders and in-person sales are assigned to locations. If some of your inventory is out of stock at one location, but it’s in stock at another location, then Shopify will split the order so that it can be fulfilled from multiple locations.

For most Shopify plans, you can have up to six locations. If you’re on Shopify Plus, then talk to your Merchant Success Manager about having more than six locations.

The following example shows a store that is set up with three locations:
