Circle  Engagements


Engagements refers to all Orders received by the Community from its followers.
Orders are created when a customer completes the checkout process.

Each Order on Circle is coupled with a unique Order ID and assigned a Status. Order statuses let you know how far along the order is, starting with Pending and ending with Completed. The following order statuses are used:

  • Pending – Order received, no payment initiated.
  • Processing – Order received but payment needs to be received and processed by the community directly. 
  • On-Hold – Order received but payment is still being processed by the payment service provider (example: PayPal).
  • Completed – Order fulfilled and complete – requires no further action.
  • Cancelled – there are three triggers to this state:
    1. Customer cancels an unpaid order,
    2. Community cancels an unpaid order, or 
    3. The payment failed or was declined.
  • Refunded – Order was paid but then refunded by the community.
