New extension alert! WooCommerce Order Status Control is now available at WooCommerce!
You know all of those annoying little tasks that you have to do every day, and they constantly eat up little bits of time? Stuff that you do anyway, because it’s just a little bit of time, but it still adds up each day…stuff like tying your shoes. You could save this time with an improved system, such as slip on shoes, or laces that you simply have to pull rather than tie. But who thinks of saving time on shoe tying?
We do. Because when those little chunks of time are spent on store management, we know they can be more valuable elsewhere.
Completing WooCommerce orders is kind of like tying your shoes for some stores. It’s not something that really needs to be done for stores that automatically export orders to drop-shippers, have a fulfillment process outside of WooCommerce, or ship immediately for paid orders. So why not just skip or automate the need to click “Complete Order”?
That’s what WooCommerce Order Status Control is for. This extensions allows you to autocomplete any order marked as “paid” (i.e., orders paid via credit card) so that store managers don’t constantly have to update these order statuses. Note that this is for orders that are paid, and is not meant for BACS / Check orders, as you may not want customers to have access to certain things (like protected content) by orders that are autocompleted without payment.
We previously sold the WooCommerce Order Status Control extension via our own site, but have now updated it and released it in the WooCommerce marketplace! You can check it out now and take back all of the snippets of time you waste on completing orders every day!
