The order, payment and shipping status drive the Storefront operations workflow and reports. For example, downloadable product is only made available to customers for download when the order is marked as “Paid”.

See Shopping Cart Flow for more information on how the different statuses work in different order-to-cash scenarios. Also read How to force order and payment status to tell the system how you want it to automatically handle your order statuses after each checkout.
