Orders can be tracked from the admin dashboard which is accessed via
/login. The admin password is saved as an env variable in the file titled
config.env. And admin status is saved in a session cookie.
The Admin page is divided into four tabs, which correspond to the four order statuses from the Stripe API:
Orders that have been successfully paid for (we add some additional features on the pages, see below)
Orders that have been marked as "Shipped"
Orders that have been started, but the cart was abandoned. On our site, this status indicats that a customer closed their browser tab right before hitting "Submit" on the credit card payment.
Orders that have been canceled/refunded through the Stripe website.
The default order item on the admin page will show the product, quantity, variations, email, shipping, and status.
Paid tab also has additional order statuses that can be used, if it is helpful for you in keeping track of orders. The different statuses are availabe in the dropdown menu, and the
Notify button will send an email alerting the customer of the status change.
