Reservation after Checkout Feature provides an ability to make a purchase using offline payment methods (such as Cash On Delivery). When a customer buys some item(s) the order status will change to "Pending" at store backend.

If the payment was successful, the website admin changes the order status to "Complete" (by clicking "Ship" on Invoice page). If the order was not paid during the reservation period, the system will automatically change the order status to "Cancelled" and return the item(s) back to stock.
