Bulk capture orders by order number with Mechanic.

Mechanic is the one-tool-does-it-all automation app for Shopify. :)

Bulk capture orders by order number

by Isaac Bowen (team@usemechanic.com)

The merchant who created this task uses another app for validating orders in bulk, resulting in a list of order numbers that should be captured. This task prompts the merchant for a list of order numbers, which Mechanic then captures one by one.

Runs when some text is submitted.
