Managing Order Structure

Managing the intricate web of orders is at the heart of every successful e-commerce venture. In this blog post, we delve into the nuances of managing your order structure seamlessly within your website's admin area. From sub-totals to discounts, each element plays a vital role in the customer's shopping experience. Let's take a look at the tools and options available in the Order Structure tab to help you simplify the process of solving complex online sales problems. Let's get started!

Once you're in the admin area of your website, click on the Modules and Order Structure tabs. Here, you'll find a comprehensive list of order structure elements, each essential for various aspects of the sales process. These elements include sub-total, discount coupons, gift wrap, low order fee, shipping costs, credit amount, payment fees, and more. Each module can be tailored to specific sales channels, providing a customized experience for your customers.

Organizing Order Modules: Effortlessly manage the order of modules by rearranging them using the drag-and-drop function, enabling or disabling them with a simple toggle, and removing unnecessary modules to streamline the order process. The quick search option, import and export settings, and the ability to display inactive and not installed modules enhance your control over the order structure.

Customizing Module Options: When you select a module from the list, you can edit, delete, or translate it as needed.

Clicking on the Edit button opens up a world of possibilities.




You can adjust the sort order, configure specific settings, and set restrictions based on various parameters. Tailor the visibility of modules on different pages, such as user accounts, checkout, emails, invoices, and more, ensuring a cohesive experience for your customers.

Fine-Tuning for Specifics: Customize module usage for specific customer groups, countries, and web site pages. Modify order element titles and use translation features for communication in multiple languages, enhancing your website's accessibility to a global audience. Depending on the specific module, additional configurable parameters can be utilized to refine your order management further.


Mastering the intricacies of your order structure will allow you to provide a smooth and enjoyable shopping experience for your customers. By understanding and using these tools, you are well on your way to optimizing your e-commerce platform. Happy management!
