This guide centers around the cancelation of live orders through Order Manager. 

Customers may want or need to cancel live orders for several reasons, such as upon a client's request, due to out-of-stock items, duplicate orders etc. It is essential to know that orders can only be cancelled before being fulfilled and delivered to the client.

Several delivery platforms allow cancellations through 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 those unsupported delivery platforms, you will need to contact or log in your delivery partner directly for manual cancellation or have the customer reach out to or log in to their delivery platforms.

Cancelling Supported Live Orders on Web Order Manager

On the Active orders list on Order Manager, choose the order that needs to be cancelled.


Once within the orders details pop-up, click on the Cancel order button, on the right-hand side.

To cancel an order, select the order you would like to cancel and then click on the Cancel Order button


If the order is from a supported delivery platform, customers need to choose a reason for the cancellation from the pop-up list


Once you select a reason for the cancellation, click on Cancel this order, and your order will be canceled. If successful, you will receive a confirmation. If the cancellation fails, customers can try again or reach out to our Support team.
