How do I stop Shopify orders from being automatically fulfilled?

If your Shopify orders are marked as shipped as soon as the order is placed, it is probably due to your Shopify store automatically marking all paid orders as "fulfilled".

The setting will break Sell The Trend's Order fulfillment process and your order will not be getting set to the supplier for fulfillment correctly.

To turn off automatic order fulfillment in Shopify:

- In your Shopify admin, navigate to Settings > Checkout.
- In the Order processing section, look for the setting with the label "After an order has been paid".
- Select "Do not automatically fulfill any of the order’s line items."
