After your customer places an order, you need to prepare and deliver the items in it. This process is referred to as order fulfillment.
The fulfillment process usually includes the following:
- picking and packaging products in an envelope or box
- labelling the order for shipment
- shipping the package with a mail carrier
To learn how to set up fulfillment in your store, read Setting up fulfillment.
If you're fulfilling an order, then follow the instructions in Fulfilling orders.
