Updated For WP E-Commerce 3.8
Friendly Manual Order Processing for WP E-Commerce provides an easy-to-use and flexible way for you or your client to process orders directly from the WordPress back end without having to go through the payment process necessary on the front end of the site.
This is particularly useful when the website is running alongside a bricks and mortar store and someone purchases an item in-store and the site owner wishes to keep a record of that sale on their website. Also useful if you take orders over the phone or via the postal system.
It literally takes 10 seconds to create a manual order and have it appear alongside your online sales – enter the name of the person and their e-mail address (or enter dummy data which you can use as a way to track which orders were manually created) and then select the product(s) and quantities. Done!
All sales appear in the purchase log (in the ‘sales’ tab in WP E-Commerce) alongside standard ‘web’ orders and you can interact with the orders as you would any other (i.e. change status, add tracking information, delete etc.).
You are also able to apply discounts to the order and also add a shipping amount is appropriate (useful if the order was placed over the phone, for example).
If you have a product marked as a ‘limited quantity’ then this plugin also handles the reduction in stock when you place a manual order – you also get informed of how many items of stock you have left before you place the order (informs you alongside the product name in the product selection dropdown selection box).
Designed to be used by novices and seasoned WP E-Commerce users alike.
This is a plugin for the WP E-Commerce Plugin which means you need to already have the WP E-Commerce plugin installed and running the way you want it to. (It’s free and incredibly easy to set up).
