Order Management Concepts
When a user buys a product from your Web site, Commerce Server creates an order. The order is processed by the Commerce Server Order Processing Pipeline (OPP), which divides order processing into stages that describe a category of work. A typical OPP might include a shopper information stage, a payment stage, and a shipping stage. For example, the product description and the shipping address for the user are retrieved from the Commerce Server database, and the amount of tax is computed. The order information and the total price are stored in the Transactions tables in the Commerce Server database.
