Editing orders

After an order is placed, you can edit it by updating information about items, customer, or order itself, e.g., change shipping costs or tax.

Usually, updating an order is required when a customer made a mistake in the delivery address, or they want to change a quantity of items or its color, size, or any other variation.

Plan availability: Business and Unlimited.

Editing orders

Editing your order information

To edit a placed order:

  1. From your Ecwid admin, go to My Sales → Orders.
  2. Find the order that you want to update. You can search by order number, customer email, items names or other details.
  3. Click Update → Edit order.
  4. Click Edit next to the order details that you want to edit.
  5. Click Save changes.

That’s it. Your order is updated.

Adding items to an order

To add products to a placed order:

  1. From your Ecwid admin, go to My Sales → Orders.
  2. Find the order that you want to update. You can search by order number, customer email, items names or other details.
  3. Click Update → Edit order.
  4. Click Add product.
  5. Enter the SKU, name, price and quantity of the product that you want to add to this order.
  6. Click Add product.

Removing items from an order

To remove products from a placed order:

  1. From your Ecwid admin, go to My Sales → Orders.
  2. Find the order that you want to update. You can search by order number, customer email, items names or other details.
  3. Click Update → Edit order.
  4. Click Edit next to the product you want to remove from the order.
  5. Click Remove:

Click Remove

The product will be deleted from the order. The customer will see the updated order details in their customer accounts in your store.

Please note that if you edit the product quantity for existing orders, the change won't affect the in-stock quantity for these items in your store. You will need to take care of the stock changes yourself (e.g., update the stock manually or provide additional items, if needed).

If you want to change a unique order ID that is assigned to each order, you can customize it in your settings.

What if the order total changes after editing?

If the order total changes after editing, Ecwid will neither charge your customer for the insufficient amount, nor refund your customers.

So, if after editing the amount became larger, you need to contact your customer directly and agree upon the way they can transfer the money to you.

And if the amount got smaller, you need to return part of the money to your customer via your payment processor. Payment processors always allow making refunds in their backend. Please contact your payment gateway's customer service, if you’re not sure, how to do this exactly.
