Each Order in Magento is downloaded into point of sale as an Invoice/Sale with detailed information. This approach offers 2 distinct workflow advantages over other systems:
- Faster Fulfillment: No need to Invoice the Order or Reserve Inventory
- Tighter Inventory Counts: Inventory is deducted as soon as the Invoice appears
Orders are downloaded regularly as part of the normal synchronization process. You may control Order Download On/Off and Credit Memo Download On/Off. There are also two Download Modes found in Apps > Magento > Orders: Auto-Invoice and Wait for Invoice.
When Auto-Invoice is selected, Orders will be automatically Invoiced in Magento by Channels as they are downloaded. Orders marked "Completed" will be ignored.
Wait for Invoice
When Wait for Invoice is selected, Orders will not be downloaded until after they are invoiced manually in Magento.
NOTE: When making large numbers of updates to products using Channels, order download will be delayed until product update is complete.
