Simple WooCommerce Order Approval

The hassle-free solution for WooCommerce orders approval before payment.

Quickly create approval rules for your WooCommerce shop orders

Pre-approve all WooCommerce orders

All the shop orders will need to be approved by the shop manager or administrator before being paid for.
Use case example: Your shop does not manage stock and you need to check for it before letting the customer pay for the order.

Pre-approve orders based on the customer’s country and/or state

Orders in which the billing or shipping country/state is on the approval list will need to be approved.
Use case example: Your shop often gets fraudulent orders from certain countries.

Pre-approve orders for certain WooCommerce shipping zones

Orders belonging to specific WooCommerce shipping zones need to be approved.
Use case example: You don’t have a shipping costs table for some destinations and need to request a quote from the shipping company.

Pre-approve orders depending on product categories

Orders containing products from specific categories need approval.
Use case example: You’re selling some products for which you need to confirm legal details with the customer, like weapons, prescription drugs, or alcoholic beverages.

Pre-approve WooCommerce orders for some products

Simple workflow

This plugin was built after trying other solutions that are just too complicated. We keep it stupid simple.

After you set up the approval rules, the workflow is as simple as possible:

  • After checkout, if the order needs approval, it is set to the “Needs approval” custom status and both the customer and the shop administrator get an email.
  • The shop manager or administrator checks the order and approves it by changing it to the “Approved” status. The customer gets an email informing the order can now be paid, including a link to choose the payment method.
  • After payment, the regular WooCommerce workflow resumes.

Compatibility, technical support, and continued development

  • WooCommerce High-Performance Order Storage compatible;
  • WPML (with WooCommerce Multilingual) compatible;
  • By buying this plugin you’ll get:
    • Technical support (conditions apply);
