  1. The quantity of goods is 2, and all packages have the same length, width, and height



The order shipment is: 2 pcs-6.00x6.00x6.00in18.00lbs
Splitting method: The splitting order condition is met. Since there are only 2 items in the order (with the same length, width, and height), it will be automatically split into two orders. The original order retains one item, and the other item will be split into the new order.

Result of Order Split: 


  1. The quantity of goods is 2, and the length, width, and height of all packages are not the same.


The order shipment is:
1 pc-1.00x1.00x1.00in1.00lbs
1 pc-2.00x2.00x2.00in2.00lbs
Splitting method: If the splitting order conditions are met and the length, width, and height of the two items are not the same, they will be automatically split into two orders and divided according to the order of the items. The original order retains the first item, and the new order that is split saves the second item.

  1. The quantity of goods is > 2, and all packages have the same length, width, and height


The order shipment is: 3 pcs-7.00x7.00x7.00in7.00lbs

When all the shipment information in the order is consistent, Select will automatically check and cannot be cancelled. Assuming we enter the split shipment as 1 in Quantity.

Users can select Select after Package to decide which shipments need to be splitted. Assuming we have selected Package1.

When there are multiple items with the same package information and a single package with non-consistent information in an order, the pop-up window is the above image type. When the user fills in 2 in Package1, it means to select to split all the items in Package1 to a new order. At this time, the corresponding Select will be displayed as a check. When the user fills in 1 in Package1, Select will not be checked. Select means that all items in this Package have been split.
Suppose we check Package1 to split them all out.
