When to Consider Manual Orders

Manual orders are particularly beneficial in the following scenarios:

  • Starting a POD Business: Order product samples to assess quality and suitability for your business.

  • Using Unsupported Ecommerce Platforms: If your platform doesn't have a direct Gelato integration, manual orders provide a workaround.

  • Managing Offline Businesses: Easily process orders received through offline channels.

  • Handling Low Order Volumes: Manually placing orders can be manageable for businesses with infrequent sales.
