WooCommerce Order Status Manager includes several core order statuses, but these may not fit the workflow for every eCommerce shop. WooCommerce Order Status Manager allows you to create extra order statuses you need, create a “next status” flow so that you can add action buttons to your orders page, add icons and bulk actions, and even tie emails to these new statuses to completely support your fulfilment workflow. Please note that custom statuses are manually applied and are not automatic at this time.

Setup and Configuration
Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Order Statuses to view the available order statuses in your shop, and tie them to email triggers as needed.
If you’ve already added some custom order statuses via a code snippet, or another plugin has added them, you can import them very quickly to get going! Click “Import custom statuses” below the order statuses table:
This will import any statuses added via custom code or 3rd party plugins (such as Pre-Orders). You can run this action again in the future if you install other plugins.
You can now delete your custom code that has added these statuses and entirely manage them via Order Status Manager. You’ll be able to add icons, use them in emails, and do anything that you can do with a status created via the plugin.
Set up Statuses
Now that you’re viewing your order status list, you’ll be able to edit core statuses, re-order statuses, or add, edit, and delete your own custom WooCommerce order statuses.
To re-order statuses, drag and drop them into your desired order. This changes the order in which they’re displayed on the “Edit Order” page and within the order bulk actions dropdown.
