In the realm of online workflows, most attention is given to those designed for text and media content creation, editing, and approval. Yet just as worthy are those used by e-commerce websites for guiding a prospective customer through a marketing funnel, then through a shopping cart process, and finally through payment and notification. Drupal Commerce has numerous built-in events that facilitate developing rules needed for such workflows — such as a change to a customer profile, the update of an order, a full payment, a saving of a payment transaction, and even a customer simply viewing a product.
