The main orders page will show you the 20 newest items that your users have added to their “Shopping Cart”. Orders in the “Shopping Cart” do not appear if the user has paid for the product or service; it only displays all that once was in the cart. Once you receive a payment confirmation from the “Payment Gateway" that you are using (either PayPal or Authorize.net) then you must check the boxes and mark the order as “Paid”. Orders that remain unpaid for 90 days will be automatically deleted from the database.
Once you click the “Recurring” button, you will see any order that was marked as “Paid” that has a recurring price to them. The “Recurring” function shows their next recurring price that the user owes you, so if it’s a monthly purchase then you will see their following payment. So, once you receive another order confirmation from your “Payment Gateway” then you need to mark the following payment as “Paid”, and so on and so forth!
This screen shows everything in the “Shopping Cart” that is not paid. These can be products that users added to their “Shopping Cart” and left the site for whatever the reason. This does not mean the user is planning on paying or not.
This shows a breakdown by monthly of all your orders and the totals you made for the months as long as you have been in business (meaning since your web portal site has been "live" and accessible to the general public).
This is a good feature if you receive orders by phone or something that is not in your shopping mall, so you can insert an order by entering information about the order. You can enter up to 5 products at one time.
Order # - The order number is randomly generated from the database and cannot be changed.
Username - The username that you enter must be a valid username on your website, meaning that in order for you to insert a order, that customer you are inserting or creating the order for, must be a valid member of your website portal with his/her own username which you would enter in this field. You cannot just enter Bob smith if his username is BobStud2012, you will need to enter BobStud2012
Discount Code – A code that is used by the discount system that gives a user a percentage or a fixed price deducted from their total price. This is a discount code that you would have setup previously within the Discount module of your website.
Paid – If the user has paid for this item, leave “Yes” selected, otherwise change this to “No”.
Referral ID – A numeric ID that is used by the Affiliate program if you want to credit one of your affiliates for this order your are in the process of inserting.
Order Date – The date the order was processed (Default is the current date)
Email an invoice to this user – This will get the user’s email address from the username and send the user an invoice of what they ordered.
You can also customize the “Header” and “Footer” of an invoice, meaning the content shown to a user when they receive an invoice in their email. The “Header” is what is above the items they purchased and the “Footer” is what’s below the items in that email they receive.
