Following on from WooCommerce: Shipping and Tax, Carbis and I are going to go over each Customers and Orders point in detail.
Orders are the most important part of any online store, so in WooCommerce we’ve created an intuitive order management suite. Here you can manually add edit orders, reduce stock and send email invoices. There’s even a handy order history section detailing when an order changes status.
Luke: In the image above we can see that WooCommerce hasn’t changed the orders section much at all. Not too much new here.
Customers are of course managed through WordPress own user management functionality.
But on the front-end each user has their own secure account section where they can add multiple shipping and billing addresses, review and track past and present orders, manage their personal details and change their password.
Luke: As expected, WordPress handles our e-commerce customers (as it should). However, the My Account section is a surprising new feature! A unified interface where customers can track their previous orders and manage their account details and addresses may be defining feature that sets WooCommerce apart from the rest.
