Preferred solution: Flag items as dropshipped by a custom fulfillment service

In Shopify, you can configure a "Custom Fulfillment Service" which will automatically classify items assigned to that service as "fulfilled by email" in Shopify.

Once this is configured and items have been assigned to this fulfillment service in Shopify, all new orders for these products will appear in SKULabs as fulfilled by that service.

You will still need to configure SKULabs to now classify this fulfillment service as a dropshipper in your Shopify store's settings within SKULabs.

Alternative: Flag items as virtual / digital

As an alternative solution, you can uncheck the "This is a physical product" checkbox in Shopify and they will automatically be excluded when found on new orders going forward.
