Creating and editing draft orders

You can use Edit Order’s powerful order creator to customize pricing, add line item properties, and more for new orders and then save that order as a draft in Shopify. This will also allow you to pick up where you left off at a later time and use Shopify’s built-in Email invoice and Pay with credit card functionality to simplify billing.
