Let's be honest. Magento's order status system is limited out of the box, and not very transparent for your customers. Enhance the native Magento order status functionality using the Advanced Order Status extension by XTENTO. Make your order processing more transparent for your customers, and for you, the store admin.

This extension enables you to dispatch email notifications using templates to customers whenever you change the order status in the Magento backend. With Magento's built-in order status system, an unlimited number of new statuses can be created right from the Magento backend, to set up more precise statuses in Magento and to let your customer know what's going on with their order.

Want to change the order status for an order? No problem! You can do so right from the Sales > Orders grid using this extension. You can change the order status of an order to ANY status, for example from "Processing" to "Complete". Now set up an email template using the Advanced Order Status extension, and your customers will get an email when the order status changes to Complete - letting them know that their order has been completed for example.

Make your order processing more transparent. Communicate the current order status to your customers. Change the order status for orders manually. All using this extension.


  • Set up email notifications for order status changes.
  • Different email notifications can be set up for each status and store view.
  • E-Mail notifications can be sent to the store owner in copy.
  • Change the order status for orders to ANY other order status.
  • Changing the order status can then notify your customers.
  • Create new statuses to communicate the current order state more clearly.
  • Simple installation, easy configuration - upload and use!
