Receiving Order Alert Emails
To be notified of new orders as they arrive, add your email address to the Email Alert Addresses.
Using Automatic Credit Card Processing
If you are using a Payment Gateway such as Authorize.Net to process your credit cards, all you need to do is watch for new orders by either checking the Order List page or by checking your email if your account is listed in the Email Alert Addresses.
As orders arrive that have been successfully charged, you can click the View Order link in the email you receive, then click Generate Invoice link at the top of the View Order page in order to create a printable receipt that can be used as a packing slip.
Once the order has shipped, you can update the Order Status on the View Order page or from the Order List.
Customers will receive Confirmation Emails as their Order Status is updated.
For more information on Order Statuses, view the Order Status topic.

Using Manual Credit Card Processing or Custom Payment Methods
If you choose to process credit cards manually, simply add that step to the above directions before setting the new Order Status.
