Cancel an Order

A step-by-step guide with explanations detailing how to cancel an order made by a customer from within your freewebstore control panel.
There are multiple reasons you might need to cancel an order and it's easier than you think. When you cancel an order, a number of things happen:
  • We'll automatically email the customer notifying them that their order has been canceled and that their payment will be refunded if they have paid.
  • Stock changes will be reversed.
  • The order status will change to "Canceled".
  • Order will no longer be actionable.
  • Order will no longer be visible.
  • If you have been charged a processing fee for the order or cart saver, this will be refunded to your account.
