In my website if order has placed via paypal or anything the status is seted as processing, but i like to set status to be pending. How to set, please let me know.
To check the list of predefined order statuses, go to
Stores -> Order Status
You’ll see all the existing statutes in the store
Set the 'Default Status' filter to 'Yes' to show only the default statuses.
You can set any of your status to while assigning status to state
For this You need to create new status and assign it to State go to admin panel Stores > Settings > Order Status create YOUR NEW STATUS after that go to "Assign Status to State", here select YOUR NEW STATUS and Set Order State "Pending" now save it .
so now when you will create new order then order status will be pending . after that you can view and changed it YOUR NEW STATUS
