To manage your Woocommerce Orders, go to Woocommerce > Orders from the Dashboard.
Once there, you can select actions to perform on individual or multiple products:
Choosing ‘Completed’ means that the Order is fulfilled and complete – requires no further action.
Below is a diagram that illustrates Order Status. This visual representation follows an order through its statuses from “Pending payment” to “Completed”, “Canceled” or “Refunded.”
Each order has a Status. Order statuses let you know how far along the order is, starting with “Pending payment” and ending with “Completed.” The following order statuses are used:
- Pending payment — Order received, no payment initiated. Awaiting payment (unpaid).
- Failed — Payment failed or was declined (unpaid) or requires authentication (SCA). Note that this status may not show immediately and instead show as Pending until verified (e.g., PayPal).
- Processing — Payment received (paid) and stock has been reduced; order is awaiting fulfillment. All product orders require processing, except those that only contain products which are both Virtual and Downloadable.
- Completed — Order fulfilled and complete – requires no further action.
- On hold — Awaiting payment – stock is reduced, but you need to confirm payment.
- Canceled — Canceled by an admin or the customer – stock is increased, no further action required.
- Refunded — Refunded by an admin – no further action required.
- Authentication required — Awaiting action by the customer to authenticate the transaction and/or complete SCA requirements.
- Checkout draft — Draft order created when customers start the checkout process with WooCommerce Blocks checkout block enabled.
