Order management is the backbone of any successful e-commerce business. Ensuring efficient and accurate order processing is crucial for delivering a positive customer experience and maximizing profits. Salesforce B2C Commerce Cloud offers a robust order management system with a key benefit – automation. Let’s explore how automated order processing in Salesforce B2C Commerce Cloud can streamline your operations and empower your business to thrive. 

The Burden of Manual Order Processing 

For many businesses, order processing can be a time-consuming and error-prone manual process. This can involve tasks like:

  • Verifying inventory availability 
  • Calculating taxes and shipping costs 
  • Generating invoices and packing slips
