Review Order Statuses & Platform Operations

You can review Volusion order statuses and platform operations in our Platform Operations guide.


Re-platforming

When re-platforming, you must keep in mind all of the following:

  • Use the Merchant Dashboard for order refunds. Do not use a platform-specific backoffice flow that’s connected to a deprecated account division.
  • Disable all of your old webhooks for the deprecated account division.
