I'm just creating my store. The store is not finished yet and is unpublished, so if you want to visit it use the password: nobody.
In fact, this is not a store but a website for accepting orders for PCB production.
Until now, the general concept of ordering looked like this:
However, I want to be able to verify and accept each order before paying for it.
I think one of the solutions might be to use a draft order.
Here's what I did:
However, as I mentioned earlier, I have enabled one active payment method (for transparency). And this is the main problem of this solution.
Is it possible to assign a dedicated payment method to pay for a draft order?
Maybe I went in the wrong direction and there is a simpler solution?
Does anyone have suggestions on how to solve this problem?
Ren here from the Shopify support team - thanks for your question! It sounds like you might want to look into some of our Form Builder apps. While generally designed for wholesale use, you can browse a variety of options to find one suited to your needs. Many of the forms allow for complete customizations. Once you receive a form/request, you can work up a draft order, make any necessary changes and send the invoice on it's way. Check out all of the app options here.
Another option would be to configure your settings to capture funds manually. This means you'll need to physically by clicking a "capture payment" button. This would allow time for you to review an order before a payment is processed. Making changes however would mean cancelling the order and sending an invoice. This is a nice option if you don't think you'll need to adjust many orders, only the odd one here or there. Another bonus is the ability to capture payments in bulk if need be. Learn how to configure those settings here.
Let me know what you think of those options!
