We want to enter some pending orders from earlier in the year. Is there a way to change the date of an order?

Hi Joanna, 

Yasmin here from Shopify Support :)

It's not possible to change the date of an order but you can easily create new orders instead. Go to Orders and Drafts in the admin and you will be able to make new copies of the old orders.

When you're done you can select "Mark as Paid" if the customers paid already, or e-mail them an invoice to have them pay now. Here's a detailed guide on using drafts: https://help.shopify.com/manual/orders/create-orders

Hope this helps!

Dear Yasmin, 

regarding the creation of draft orders to record old orders, what can be done about the inventory deduction that is automatically applied when creating a draft order?

We have a similar situation where we would like to migrate old and pending orders into Shopify. But we need to adjust the dates so that our books correspond with Shopify.

Thanks
