Shopify Adds Manual Order Entry and Credit Card Processing
Cloud-based shopping cart Shopify has added support for manual order entry and manual input of credit card details to enable wholesale and phone orders.
The new "custom orders" tool allows merchants to build orders in Shopify using existing products, new line items, one-time discounts, and customizable shipping rates. It also allows orders to be saved as drafts.
Custom orders can be emailed to the customer with a link to pay online, or paid by credit card by manual input.
Custom order creation is available to all Shopify merchants at no additional cost but only those using direct payment gateways can process credit cards through manual input.
