Auto-archive orders after fulfillment

by Isaac Bowen (team@usemechanic.com)

Just as it says. :) Archives orders immediately upon fulfillment, or after a configurable number of days.

Runs when an order is fulfilled. Configuration includes days to wait after fulfillment before archiving.

15-day free trial – unlimited tasks

Mechanic is designed to benefit everybody: merchants, customers, developers, agencies, Gurus, everybody.

That’s why we make it easy to configure automation without code, why we make it easy to tweak the underlying code once tasks are installed, and why we publish it all here for everyone to learn from.
