How to find or complete an existing draft order on shopify


As known from previous tutorials, draft orders are one of the most effective tool for you to manage your Shopify online business. They not only can display orders’ information in a clearer way by containing such important information such as products, taxes, or tags, but can also help you in doing many tasks like in selling products in a sale price, sending invoices or taking pre orders.

One of the most useful effect of a draft order is that it will help you to save a order that is not in need at the moment as draft, and when needed, you can comeback to the draft at any time, redo or correct it, and then complete it at no time. This not only gives you a space to practice managing your orders, but can also be a useful tool for you to manage your products.
