Order Approval by Customer for WooCommerce

Description

Imagine the current workflow of WooCommerce where the admin is the only one who can change the order status to completed. The customers don’t have the option to approve order/product delivery from their end. So, the admins can’t verify if the product has been received by the customer or not. Also when a customer will see the order marked
as Completed even though he/she has not received it, it will be a disaster for the trust of your BRAND. And this is where this plugin
comes into play.

At first, you will ship the product after an order has been placed. Then you will need to select the order status as
Delivered. When the admin marks it as delivered, the customer will see a button named “Mark as Received” in the actions section
on the My Accounts -> Orders page. Once the customer has received the product, he/she will just need to click on the “Mark as Received” button and the order status will be automatically marked as Completed upon the click.

Update

  • Added compatibility for WordPress 5.8
  • Hidden Mark As Received button after form submit
  • Fixed order status text update without manually refreshing

Benefits

  1. Improving the Workflow of the Woocommerce shop
  2. Gaining customer trust
  3. Improving brand reputation by streamlining the process of product delivery

FAQ

When will customers see Mark as Received button?

The customers will see this button only if the order status is set as Delivered because
we don’t want them to be able to mark the order as Completed when the order is in processing or in any other status.

How to customise the button?

At this initial release, we have avoided extra customisations. We have some ideas to make this a great plugin for you but first, we need to see if this plugin will be useful to users.

How can I contribute to the plugin?

It’s an open source plugin and you can contribute on Github at this Repository

Thanks for the complement The plugin seems very useful to me, but the problem is that I have to click twice so that the button (mark as received) disappears. I hid the button to see the order, I would like the button (mark as received) to disappear with a single click, as it can cause confusion to the user, how can I do that? Thank you
