Manage Order Types
The Order Type determines how the order is processed by e-Commerce system. An Order Type has these settings:
- Default - there must be one Order Type which is the default and is automatically applied to every new online order. If you enter orders manually, you may want to create more order types.
- Creates New User - this setting only applies to the 'Passthru' payment option and is used to create a new user account when the order is processed (A Passthru order is where an employee enters an order on behalf of a customer)
- Emails Customer - this setting determines if the customer is emailed a copy of the invoice when the order is submitted. In most cases, this would be 'yes' for the 'Default' Order Type.
- Affects Inventory - this setting determines if the order will reduce the quantity of the product ordered when the order is submitted. Again, in most cases, this would be 'yes' for the 'Default' Order Type
