Next, navigate to the orders tab. Here, we'll go over briefly how your orders will come in.

There are two types of orders: Product orders and Building Service orders. Below is a summary of each type of order.

Product Orders: These types of orders happen when someone either downloads your product design or they place an order with an available building service. You can differentiate these types of orders because it will say Product Purchase under Status/Type. You do not have to take action with these types of orders. But it's still a good idea to keep track of these.

Building Service Orders: These types of orders will show up when someone places an order for a product using your building service. Upon receiving the order, the Status/Type will show Processing. This let's you know that payment has been received and you are now processing the order to get the product made. You can click on the order number to view more details.

Order Details:

A. Overview: Here you'll find an overview of everything included in the order. This includes the building service, the product, the color for the 3D printed parts, as well as the total cost including shipping. You will also find the download link for all the 3D model files to make the product(remember, one of the great things about Print3d Mart is the ability to be a maker for anyone's designs). Below, you'll also find the assembly instructions, additional parts, and the shipping address of the customer.

B.General Details: You'll find the date the order was placed, status, and the customer email address here. Once you get the product made and shipped, you will want to change the status to COMPLETED. This will let the customer know their product is it's way.
