With the implementation of GDPR, there is no advantage in storing useless data.
You will probably also notice an improvement on admin speed if you have many thousands of orders that can be removed.
Note: This module will be domain-locked to your site and requires an annual license fee (currently £50)
In the UK, HMRC requires you to retain order data for (in effect) 7 years. This does not mean you need to store it on your website, as long as you have a copy offline, whether that be in an accounting package such as Sage or simply as a spreadsheet file. By retaining only a sensible working range of orders on your website, not only do you keep unnecessary data to a minimum to maintain compliance with GDPR, but you also avoid building up enormous amounts of data which can slow down your admin when thousands upon thousands of database entries need to be searched - eg. when you are simply accessing your orders listing, the system needs to work out how many orders there are in order to display the number per page and tell you how many pages there are.
Indeed, a useful tip is to go to admin > configuration > maximum values and set the number of orders per page to 100 as opposed to the default 20. That alone will speed up your admin processes.
Support and Upgrades
The module carries free technical Support and Upgrades from the date of the order whilst a valid license exists. This does not include any configuration or testing of your own data that you may wish us to implement. We will be happy to do this for you, but it is billable at our standard hourly rate.
If this plugin does not suit your needs our developers could create a bespoke plugin just for you.
