Most of my sales are going to be Cash on Delivery. However, on the order itself there is no option to change the Status from Pending to anything else. They aren't Downloadable or Virtual products, they are real items and are Variable Products.
I can send out the emails manually, but I am going to be left with a long list of Pending orders that I can only delete, which will mess up my inventory levels.
Is there something silly I've missed?
