Ever wanted your WooCommerce orders to be marked as “complete” straight away – for example if you never need them to be marked “processing” (maybe they are downloads, or a membership, or some other reason which means “processing” is not helpful to you, for example!?)?
The snippet below in this page will get you there. Its designed to make sure a WooCommerce order goes straight to Complete on the customer reaching the thank-you page – i.e. when their payment has successfully completed in WooCommerce.
Remember you can disable processing mail, too
