To Mark An Order's Status

By marking an order's status, your customer can log onto the Order Tracking page (if you have that page activated on your site) and put in their order # and check the status of their order. Its a convenience for your customer.

When you prepare an order to ship, click on Orders on the left hand side of your admin, then choose "On Order" from the dropdown menu. A list of all orders yet to be shipped will be listed. Click on the order number and you can mark an item as On Order, Shipped, Backordered, Cancelled or Completed.

When a customer clicks on Order Tracking from your menu, they will be asked to put in their order number. Once they do that, they will be able to find out the status of their order depending on how you marked it. This is a good way for you to keep track of whether or not an item has been paid for, shipped and filed.
