FAQ

Q: Why not just use Edit Orders?
A: Edit Orders is a great mod but it has some quirks. For example, it will delete and re-add entries in the orders_products table, which is problematic if you have additional columns (such as the ones created by the dropshipping mod). It also in certain cases will not let you modify the figure created by an order total module, which may be what you want to do.
