Need customised fields and functions?

This guide describes the extensive out-of-the-box options available for the Order Tracking function. But perhaps your customer orders capture additional information that you want to be searchable or displayed in Order History, e.g., Job Number, Procurement Reference, or Actual Delivery Date? For implementation of custom fields and options, please contact Commerce Vision


Online order tracking allows your customers to look up an invoice or their entire history of submitted orders. Using the standard filter, a search can be limited to return only orders that are:

  • completed
  • rejected
  • returns
  • awaiting approval, or
  • outstanding.

For B2B customers where one account can have more than one user, and/or one user can be linked to multiple accounts, Order History can be set to allow the user to view:

  • only the orders they submitted, OR all orders on the Customer account
  • only the orders for the Customer account they are currently in, OR all orders for all linked Customer accounts.
