Magento 2 is the favourite platform for every store to boost online sales dramatically. It is excellent if many orders are placed. However, by then, you will find it diffcult and waste much time on having thousands of orders managed effectively. Let’s follow the guides in this post to help you manage Order Staus and Order State better. The more time saved, the more profits earned.
As soon as each order is created, the order information is transferred directly to a stage in Magento 2 order processing workflow. In addition, there is a specific column in the Orders grid called Status that will control the order status, and a set of predefined order status and order state settings are supported for your store. The order state reports the position of an order in the workflow at that time.
See the following image to figure out the management of Magento 2 order status:
In Status column, you can see many types of the order status such as: Pending, Complete, Processing, etc. So what is the order status?
