Introduction to Order Workflows

Order Workflows are a channel-specific setting that, if enabled, require the buyer or seller to give internal prior approval for an order before it can be processed. To learn more about DXP Workflow in general, see Introduction to Workflow.

The Order Workflows are integral in Liferay Commerce.

Users can activate the Buyer Order Approval Workflow, Seller Order Acceptance Workflow, or both in their order lifecycle. The Workflows can be used to mirror real world business procedures, such as all orders must be reviewed by an order manager before submission.
