This document describes how to edit shipments in the Back Office.


To start working with order shipments, do the following:

  1. Go to Sales > Orders.
  2. Next to the order you want to manage the shipment of, click View. This opens the Order Overview page.

Review the reference information before you start, or look up the necessary information as you go through the process.

If you create or edit a shipment of an order created by a customer, the grand total paid by the customer is not affected:

  • If a new shipment method is added, its price is 0.
  • If the shipment method is changed, the price of the previous shipment method is displayed.

Editing shipments

  1. In the ORDER ITEMS section, next to the shipment you want to edit, click Edit Shipment. This opens the Create Shipment page.
  2. For DELIVERY ADDRESS, select a different customer’s address or New address. If you selected New address, address fields appear. Fill out the details of the new address.
  3. Select a SHIPMENT METHOD.
  5. Click Save. This opens the Order Overview page with the success message displayed.

A shipment that does not contain any items is automatically deleted.
