For account-based scheduled order, the order requires approval if one instance of the scheduled order exceeds the purchase limit. When a scheduled order is approved, the approval applies to every instance of the order created based on the schedule. The approval persists even if the prices of the schedule order change. Conversely, if Oracle Commerce Cloud determines that a new scheduled order does not require approval, that determination persists even if the prices change in the schedule order and cause its total value to exceed the purchase limit at some point in the future.

The approval status of a scheduled order affects what the shopper can do with the order. When a scheduled order has been approved, the order is locked down and the only elements that can be edited are the schedule, the active or inactive setting, and the payment method. Note that a scheduled order does not go back for re-approval if the schedule is edited.

When a scheduled order has been rejected, none of the order’s instances are allowed to proceed and the order cannot be edited. When a scheduled order is pending approval, its contents are repriced when the order’s details are viewed. The shopper can modify the schedule and the active/inactive setting of a scheduled order that is pending approval.

Scheduled orders that already exist when the order approval feature is enabled are allowed to proceed without approval.
