Create your orders batch file based on the date of the
order. You specify the beginning and ending date and
name the batch, this module will do the rest. It finds
orders which have not already been batched and that fall
within the date range you specified. Many people fill
orders from the merchant notification email and infrequently
look in the order processing section to review a detail
about the order. Hence, they do not bother to batch daily.
This module allows you to maintain your batches in a
logical, historical manner (e.g. by month), much like the
file cabinet in your office without having to run the
batch at a specific time or date. This module is for MIVA Merchant 5.x. We also have the corresponding module for an older version of Merchant.
The module includes a feature that lets you re-batch previously batched orders if their batch has not been deleted. For example, you may batch orders daily. But then at the end of the month, instead of having 30 batches in your order processing tab, you can re-batch all the orders for that month into a single batch. This makes archiving orders convenient.
The module includes
a table that lists all existing batches and how many orders
are in each batch.
The build action of this module is run within Admin,
under the Store Utilities. Once the batch is created, the
Run Report screen pops up. You can run a report then or
you can find the batch and run a report later from the
order processing section. The batches show up in the standard list of batches under Order Processing.
If you have access to cron on your
server, you can automatically create batches any time, day or night. Use with our
EZ Batch Report module, which also can run under cron, to export the orders and email the file to you.
