Changing orders information is an inevitable situation for any stores.

We are going to clarify how can you deal with this limitation by using Edit Order extension for your Magento 2 web stores.

Which troubles Magento admin usually get in editing order?

An order cannot be edited without canceling it

Magento 2 default has a big limitation, we suppose, which is forcing to cancel an order if it is edited at the backend. Normally, it means that order information is fixed stored at the system as soon as it is created. There is no ability to change it later since there is any required. Sometimes, it is hard for both customers and stores to update orders quickly. In other words, they must create a new one and cancel the current order. The process is obviously time-wasting and inconvenient for both parties.

Redirection process results in a slow loading at backend

Whenever admin wants to change the order information, they will be moved to another page in which contain specific order and its related data. Firstly, it takes them more time to do the modifying work. Secondly, more steps required will definitely reduce the backend work speed. Both reasons cause slow down the system and hence comes an inefficient performance of admin.

Sometimes, customers change their mind and they would want to ship their orders to another place. Stores cannot change customers address which is entered previously when they made an order. Consequently, billing, shipping, and payment info assigned with that address are unmodifiable anymore. Let’s imagine how inconvenient and frustrating it will be when you get a lot of requests from your buyers to change any info.

How Edit Order supports store owners reduce their workloads

Allow editing order via pop-up

This function can be considered as one of the most outstanding features of the Edit Order module. It allows admin to edit all information which is related to the order through a popup with ease. Store admins will be able to edit the order without being redirected from the View Order Page.

As a result, the update process will become much more convenient and time-saving.

In addition, using Edit Order, the order will not be canceled after any modification as well as the order ID is remained unchanged.

Update Payment And Shipping Method

Because many reasons are related to both store and customer, updating payment method has become very necessary in various circumstances. However, it is impossible in Magento Default setting.

This causes lots of inconvenience for both stores and customers. However, with the Edit Order module, the payment methods list will be displayed and change easily within some mouse clicks.

Logically, the order’s shipping method can be changed along with the shipping method changing. Moreover, shipping method can also be conducted via a popup that allow you to select the options right on the View Order page.

Modify ordered items at View Order page

With View Order Page, admins now easily update an order’s cart items on the backend without having to cancel the order. Via the pop-up, admin can choose to keep or remove the item, change its information like price, quantity, or apply tax/ discount.

The Quick edit feature turns the convenience to a new level with once submit time to edit all order’s components. On View Order Page, a pop-up which lists all order data fields is ready to be displayed to you after clicking the Quick Edit button.

This pop-up helps minimize the submit action when you modify all order information include: order information, customer information, billing and shipping address, payment method and shipping method as well as items ordered.
