Order Processing

Store Gift Card

When the store gift card is not through Givex a custom checkout pane can be enabled so that both the store gift card and credit card information can be collected for the order.

STORE GIFT CARD - USING CUSTOM CHECKOUT PANE 

Stamps.com Integration

The Stamps.com module allows you to export orders from your IndieCommerce site to Stamps.com.  Once you process and ship these orders using the Stamps.com software or website, you can then import a file from Stamps.com to mark the orders as processed and email the tracking numbers to your customers.

First, ask IndieCommerce staff to enable the module for you.  You can do this through the store features page:

Store > Configuration > Account Information and Preferences > Store Features

Quick Note Field for Orders

The Quick Note field provides Store and Order administrators a field in which notes may be added to an order and displayed on the Order Administration page (Store > Orders).
A couple of  scenarios where other IndieCommerce stores have used this field:

Preorders
