The businesses that rely on salesmen and network marketing may enable their salespersons to manually place orders for their clients directly on your WordPress Ecommerce website and then ask clients to complete the payment.
For enabling your salesmen to manually add orders, first, add them to your website from the admin panel Users -> Add New page and then they would be able to place orders by following these steps.
- Login to the admin panel and navigate to WooCommerce -> Orders
- Click Add New, and the Single Order page will appear
- Input customer details, add line items, apply coupons, fees, then calculate totals
- Set a status for the new order. For Example – If the order needs to be paid, use “Pending payment” status
- Click the ‘Save’ button
Next, use order actions dropdown to email order details to the customer with payment instructions. Orders having a “Pending payment” status can be paid through the payment link, direct bank transfer, or whatever payment method you are using.
If the customer is new and unregistered on your website, he can proceed as a guest, as anyone with the link will be able to view the payment page and pay for his order. Whereas if the customer is already registered, then he can view the order by logging into your website.
In case your salesman has already received the payment and delivered it to you then you may change the order status to processing and start with your shipping process.
