The order overview (1) provides you with a list of all orders placed by your customers.
With the button Add order (6) you can call up the module for creating an order. More information about creating an order can be found here.
In the overview, you have the option to hide/show individual columns (4) using the drop down menu (2) or to use a compact mode (3), which summarizes the displayed table a bit more.
You can also manually define the sorting of the individual columns (5) to adjust them according to your wishes.
To the right of the overview you will find tools (7) to update the displayed orders or to filter them further and thus narrow them down more precisely. 

Order details

The order details can be opened by clicking on the order number (1) or the item View and delete (3) within the context menu (2) of the order.
Here you can view the selected order in detail and manage the items and the accounting or delete the order. 
However, once an invoice has been created, the option Delete can no longer be selected.


In the detail view you get more information about the order.
You can also cancel the order, if necessary.

Customer data: Here you see all personal data of the customer, who made this order, again in an overview.

Order data: You have here the view on all additional details to this order, as well as the selected shipping and payment method.


Here you have the possibility to see the individual items of this order, as well as the calculation of the sum of the items.
You can also add new products as positions, edit existing ones or remove them.

The items of the order can have, depending upon your configurations, also other taxes and are calculated here accordingly individually to a total price together.
This enables you to offer mixed baskets for your customers.


The states-module allows you to adjust the order and payment status of your order.
If changes have already been made here, the module also shows you a history with an exact time stamp for the corresponding change.

Some statuses are interdependent and can only be selected when the order already has a certain status.
For example, the payment status Refunded, Refunded (partially) or Chargeback can only be assigned if the order has previously had the payment status Paid or Paid (partially).
Likewise, the Delivery status can only be set to Returned or Returned (partially) if the order previously had the delivery status Shipped or Shipped (partially).
The order status can only be set to Closed if the status has already been set to In process. To set it back to Open, the order status must first be set to Closed or Canceled.

If the customer initiates an order, the purchased products are initially only deducted from the available stock. Only when you set the order status to Completed, the purchased products will also be deducted from the stock.

If you change a status through the respective drop down menu, a modal will open, which you can use to send an email about the new status to the customer.
You can also attach documents already generated for the order (e.g. delivery note or invoice) to the e-mail.

You can select the documents to be sent from the list (1). If you do not want to send an email, set the Send email to customer (2) switch to inactive before updating the status (3).

The email is filled by a template of the appropriate type.
If no template has been assigned to the sales channel in which the order was placed, you will receive a selection window in which you can assign the template.

In the overview you can choose the existing templates (1). If there is no or no suitable template available, you can directly call up the editor to create email templates (2). You can confirm the selection by clicking on the button Assign email template (3), then the new status will be set.
If you want to change the status without assigning an email template, you can do this by clicking on the button Don't assign an email template (4).

In the business-events you can define for which status which email template should be used. You can find out how to use the business events here.


Here you will find all the details for delivery of your order.
This includes the shipping method, the delivery date, the shipping costs and the address to which the order should be delivered.


The document templates are managed within the document module, in your settings.

After you have clicked on Create New you can select which type of document you want to create for this order. To create the document you have to make the following settings:

Number and date (1): Enter here the number of the document and the date, which should be entered on the document. This information is necessary if you create the documents with Shopware. By default, the next number from the respective number range is selected as the number.
Upload custom document (2): If you don't want to create the documents like invoices or delivery bills with Shopware but the documents are already available as PDF, activate this option. In a further step you have the possibility to upload this PDF. In this case, the input number and date will not be reproduced on the document.
Comment (3): The comment is noted in the standard at the bottom of the document. 
Preview (4): With this button you can see in the browser how the document created by Shopware would look like. Own documents are not considered here.

The payment process in Shopware 6

In Shopware 6 the payment and the order are completely separated from each other. This means that, unlike in Shopware 5, an order is triggered as soon as the customer clicks on Send order.

The payment status then remains open for the time being. As soon as the customer has made the payment, the payment status changes to Paid. Usually, the customer makes this payment (for example, if he is redirected to PayPal) immediately after the order process.

Should the payment process be aborted by the customer or an error occur, the customer can also initiate the payment again in his customer account at a later date or change the payment method.

The customer can see his order including the delivery status and the payment status in the order overview of his account.

Change payment method (1): This option takes the customer back to the checkout page of the order, where he can update the payment method and carry out the payment process again.

Repeat order (2): Here the customer can place the order again.

Cancel order (3): The customer can cancel the order completely. To allow the customer to cancel an order, it is necessary to activate this option& in the admin under Settings > Cart settings > Enable refunds.
