Questions and Answers

Q) I didn’t get my order confirmation e-mail but I saw from my payment gateway admin that the customer has actually paid. How does this happen?
A) The email system is made so that it either works for everyone or doesn't work for everyone. If you are specifically not getting these emails then it is usually due to your email account or possibly a mistype of your email address in the store settings in your admin panel. If the problem persists after a few orders then please contact a representative.

Q) How does Changing the status of an order affect stock levels of the products in an order?
A) Stock Management Between Folders is managed as follows;

Please be mindful when transferring orders between statuses as this can affect stock levels. The following are the stock rules in place between status folders.

Positive folders = New order, In progress, ready to ship, shipped, completed

1. When moving order from cancelled folder to positive folders, stock is reduced.
2. When moving order from Denied folder to cancelled and all positive folders, stock is not affected. (This is because a denied payment order is placed here and does not affect stock levels when placed)
3. When moving order from positive folder to Cancelled and Denied folders, stock is added.
4. When moving order from cancelled folder to Denied folder, stock is not affected.

 The same customer placed exactly the same 2 orders. One is waiting, one is full paid what should I do?
A) This generally means that the order with payment status as waiting was not completed and the customer has returned to complete a new order at a separate time. It's best to always contact the customer to make sure but you should check your bank to see how many transactions were process as well.

Q) Can I customise my order and shipped emails?
A) Yes, from the settings menu in your admin, select store settings, Order Email & Invoice Settings (on the left). From there you can edit the email notes field for the various emails that can be sent to your customers.
