This guide will explain how to cancel live orders directly through your Order Manager. 

A live order is an accepted order currently on its way to being delivered or hasn't been fulfilled, either still being prepared or awaiting the courier to pick it up. These orders may need to be canceled for a variety of reasons, such as out-of-stock items, extreme order volume, or even upon a client's request. 

Live orders from several delivery platforms such as Uber Eats, Doordash, Grubhub etc, can be cancelled directly from your Order Manager. However, some delivery platforms do not support this feature, only allowing cancellations to be done either directly through their platforms or via their own Support channels. For unsupported delivery platforms, you will need to contact or log in your delivery partner directly for manual cancellation.
