Preparing Orders for Dispatch
By default, orders are not dispatched until they have been paid for.
On a new order, you can choose whether to create an invoice, or dispatch the order without waiting for payment.
Create an invoice immediately if you require payment before items are dispatched. This will change the order status to Invoiced. Once the invoice has been marked as paid, the order status will automatically change to Released, meaning the items will be available for dispatch.
Selecting "Dispatch without payment" will change the order status to Released immediately and all items on the order will be available for dispatch.
Items that are ready to be dispatched will show up in the Dispatch section of the admin.
