WooCommerce is the most popular shopping system plugin for WordPress. The Superhero theme is compatible with this plugin and we constantly release updates of the theme with latest version of it for compatibility reasons. Next, we make a brief introduction to the WooCommerce Options itself, regardless of which theme you use. In each section we link to detailed documentation. 


Orders are created when a customer completes the checkout process and they’re visible to the Admin and Shop Manager users only. Each order receives a unique Order ID. When you start taking orders, the order management page will begin to fill up. You can view these orders by visiting the WooCommerce > Orders in the left hand admin menu.


Each order row displays useful details, such as the customer’s address, email, telephone number, and the order status. You can click the order number or the ‘view order’ button to see the single order page (this is also where you can edit the order details and update the status).
