one of our clients requested us to create a global webshop for their business. We have little experience with webshops and as we are avid fans of Craft, we'd like to start on this project with Craft Commerce.
It would be built with Commerce 1.x as their current site is based on Craft 2 and an update to Craft 3 is not possible at the moment.
My questions are a bit broad and is based on our little experience we have with Magento:
how far does Craft Commerce go when a user puts an order? - The user buys something on the website - The order is sent to the Payment gateway - When the payment is processed, the gateway sends a confirmation back. - What does Craft do next? Does it automatically set a new order status "paid"? It creates an order, but does it handle cancelations or order credit notes? Or does Craft Commerce quits when the order is created?
Magento has some sort of built-in bookkeeping, but how far does Craft go?
What gateway is best for global/international payments?
