Why lock or park your orders?

When creating DIRECT orders or receiving unpaid orders from all channels except for Amazon the order will not be set as parked by default, thus it is advised to manually lock or park them if you want to make sure the orders will not be edited or processed by accident with an unpaid status.

Whenever an unpaid order is downloaded from Amazon into Linnworks it is set to Parked status by default to make sure that such orders will not be processed by accident as most of the information on the order is 'unknown' until the order will be paid for on Amazon.
