In this article, we will walk you through the default order workflow in Woocommerce as it's not only considered an important step for you to maintain your knowledge about the Woocommerce platform but also because the Paytabs plugin for Woocommerce is adopting this default Order workflow which will affect the behavior of your website/store (such as order creation, carts, sent notifications/emails, ... and so).
The checkout process begins when the shopper clicks the "Go to Checkout" button on the shopping cart page or reorders directly from their customer account.
Step 2: Order Pending
The order is received, and no payment is initiated. Awaiting payment.
Step 2: Processing Order
The order payment is received (paid), and the stock is reduced; the order is awaiting fulfillment. All product orders require processing, except those that only contain products that are both Virtual and Downloadable.
Step 3: Order Completed
The order is fulfilled and complete. No further action is required.

Completed The order is fulfilled and complete (no further action is required).
