"Split Order On Checkout” is an Extension for Magento 1. With the help of this Extension, separate order ids will be generated automatically for multiple orders. It can be generated based on some product attribute or the number of items in the cart. The customer can view detailed information about their order in their account and track each item. The admin can generate separate invoices and shipments for each order id with this extension. Shipping charges and tax are also get split based on the items. With this extension Order Management will be very easy from the admin’s end.
Use Cases of Split Order On Checkout:
A) Default Condition:
When the condition is ‘Default’ No matter if you are using any attribute or not, the order will get split. This is the Default condition where attribute does not effect on your orders. Example: If an order has 4 products and the attribute is being enabled/disabled for the order; the order will split into 4 different orders regardless of the attribute is enabled or disabled.
B) Split if the '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 the 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 the '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
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.

- Customer can view detailed information about their order in their account.
- Seperate invoices and shipment can be created for individual order.
- Order management could be much easier.
