How to create draft orders for influencers that don't skew analytics

I'm looking for a way to create a draft order for influencers & giveaway winners that do not reflect our Shopify analytics.

The reason being is because the draft orders seem to skew our analytics.

For example: I create a draft order and put a 100% discount on the order and then click 'mark as paid" to initiate the order. By doing this, it counts as an order... so it effects my conversion rate, average order value, total orders, and several other things.

The reason I need to go through Shopify is because we have a 3rd party fulfillment center, and our orders route through our store to their system...Is there any way this is possible?
