I would like orders with payment type banktransfer and cashondelivery to have the order status "Processing" but it only let me choose "Pending". Magento only allows an order status with state "new" but I would like one from state "processing".

Currently I need to manually change the order status for every order. How can I change this?

Processing means an invoice was created. If you want to be able to have the label Processing it might work to create a new status, name it processing but append the state pending.

However, this might be extremely confusing since it's not very clear which orders where invoiced and which ones weren't

  • ok, so I could use something like this to create an invoice and change state for those payments? Oct 14, 2014 at 13:13
  • Yes, that would be possible, in that case the order will be put on processing Oct 14, 2014 at 13:17
