One of the most exciting parts of opening an online store is seeing your products fly off the virtual shelves. That is, until you realize that you have to process all of these orders. And then, panic strikes.
While this might seem like a lot of work, we’ve totally got your back. In just 5 fast steps you can be an order-processing pro.
Go to Orders > Process Orders and click the Order ID you want to process.
Review the order details and keep an eye out for suspicious or fake-looking information. See our article on identifying fraud for tips.
For most merchants, the order payment will already be authorized – simply click Apply under the Capture menu to collect payment.
Print the invoice, packing slip and shipping label for your shipment.
Click Complete Order to send a shipped confirmation email to your customer. The order status will be changed to Shipped in your store.
And that’s it. Really.
