How to Enable or Disable Reorder in Magento 2?

Magento understands the importance of streamlining the experiences for both the merchants and the customers. After all, an improved online shopping experiences translates to better sales and higher customer satisfaction. If you look at your sales, you’ll notice customers reordering the same products frequently. This is especially the case for merchants selling consumable or frequently used products.

Should a customer go through the same process every time when ordering the products? The answer is no because this repetitive behaviour can be quite frustrating and time-consuming. Instead, merchants should order a one-click feature, allowing customers to reorder a previous order. With all the details pre-filled, the user only has to hit the ‘Submit Order’ button.

Luckily for stores based on Magento 2, the platform offers both customers and admin to place a reorder of items once purchased. All you need to do is enable this feature from the backend. Of course, if not needed, you can always disable it later. Before we list the steps, let’s quickly go through the benefits of the reorder button, when to enable it, and when to disable.
