Once you open your own e-commerce store with SmartBiz, there’s a good chance you’ll now have to manage several incoming orders. Keeping track of the details and processing each order efficiently is important in order to ensure customer satisfaction and maintain customer trust. If your business continues to grow, it will eventually become necessary to hire staff members to take care of various tasks. However, until you reach that point, it’s essential to find an efficient way to manage your orders.

On SmartBiz by Amazon, you will receive a push notification that notifies you of a new order. Alternatively, you can check new orders from the ‘My Orders’ page of your SmartBiz account to check your online orders. Here are the steps on how you can manage your orders with SmartBiz.
