Open Order Best Practice?

Open Order Best Practice?

I often create orders for customers to help them.

I want to end up with an Unpaid "Open" order status which the customer can open in their account and then make their payment resulting in a"Paid" order status.

Currently I select the customer in the admin zone and "act on behalf" to create the order and check the skip payment box and then I select Paypal and do not complete the payment which results in an order which is open and unpaid.

I also use Stripe for credit cards and by default there is no skip payment box so I can't seem to create an unpaid Open order.

My questions:

What is the easiest and fastest solution?

Note I don't want to type manually the customer's name and addres etc..

Why you do not use built-in order management? You can select customer and create order with any status from the admin panel.

Right after your helpful post I emailed your website about some possible work to be done - no response yet....

Also I don't know your name so I couldn't ask for you.

Sorry, our managers are overloaded a bit at the moment. They will reply you at the first opportunity

Sounds good - you must have lots of orders a good thing...

And I have heard back from someone.
