Order Statuses

Order Statuses in Zen Cart

What is an Order Status?

The order status field is a value which encapsulates where the order is in your workflow. Zen Cart has the following default order statuses:

  • Pending
  • Processing
  • Delivered
  • Update

New order statuses can be created in Admin > Localization > Orders Status.

How can I set my orders to status Shipped?

You can add a new order status (Shipped) by going to Admin > Localization > Orders Status.

Then go to Admin > Customers > Orders and update the order’s status to ‘Shipped’ making sure that you set the Notify Customer radio button to Email.


Still have questions? No problem! Just head over to the Zen Cart support forum and ask there.
In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
