Find out how to update order ID and why you may want to do it.
Updating Order ID
This feature is useful for a couple of reasons. The first is when merchants use the same payment gateway for different stores. You can use the Update Order ID to ensure the order ID on the newer store is way apart from the older store to prevent duplicate order IDs. Duplicate or overlapping order IDs might mess things up on payment gateway's side.
Another benefit is this feature is especially useful to new merchants. By udpating the order, ID merchants can give customers the impression that they've already made a few orders. As a customer, when you receive an order confirmation email or notice, you feel a bit more assureds if your order ID reads 2097 instant of 0005.
