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
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:
When a customer adds items to a shopping cart, provides their contact information but does not complete the checkout, that shopping cart is considered as an ‘abandoned cart’. The orders associated with these abandoned carts will be in the ‘In checkout’ status. Your website can be configured to send reminder emails to customers who abandoned their cart.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS FEATURE
Reminder emails can be sent either after 24 hrs or 48 hrs
When a customer enters tax exempt information, the tax is removed from the order. While processing the order, store admins can verify the tax-exempt information and if needed add the tax back to the order.
ADD TAX BACK TO AN ORDER
Navigate to: Store > Orders > View Orders
Select the ‘View’ button for the order
Review and verify the tax-exempt information provided by the customer
Your main page for order review is found by navigating to: Store > Orders. Here you will find a list of all active orders and it is from here that you will process these orders as needed. In this document, we’ll review what each standard order status means, what state that order status belongs to, and how to create custom order statuses of a particular state.
