Order Approval Manager Extension for Magento® 2

Magento Order Approval Manager gives customers a way to complete an order before actually paying for it and to forward the purchase to someone else for approval and payment.

Asking Customers for Payer Details

During the checkout process the customer is asked to fill out information about the person who will pay for the order.

This includes name, email and a note to the payer.

This is a great way for B2B Ecommerce sites to provide the ability for companies or employees to create orders and send them to the responsible manager or accounting department to pay.

Sending Notifications to both Customer and Payer

After the order is created the payer is notified and receives a link to complete the order or to cancel it.

Payers can also edit the cart contents and remove or add items.
