In this section of the guide to the MarketPress eCommerce plugin, we will take a look at Managing Orders.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On the left-hand sidebar of the Dashboard navigate to Products -> Manage Orders.


A list of Orders will display here. At this point we don’t have any Orders.

Let’s add one!

Add Product to Shopping Cart

Using the Men’s Plaid Shirt product entered earlier, let’s perform a test purchase through the online store using the Manual Payments option.

  • Navigate to Products -> Store Settings – Payments, place a check mark in the Manual Payments check box. Click the Save Changes button to save this change.
  • Navigate to Products -> Products, mouse over the Men’s Plaid Shirt Product Name to display a sub-menu and click the View hyperlink to view the Product.

  • From the Shipping Information page, enter your Checkout Information then click the Continue Checkout button.


  • From the Payment Information page, click the Review hyperlink to view your Order. Click the Continue Checkout button to continue.

    Note: Because we have selected the Manual Payment option, this page does not contain any Payment Details. If another Payment Method was selected, the details would display here.

    • Review Shipping Details
    • Review Checkout
