order is different from submitting an order.
An order is an offer to buy. It usually goes through a business
protocol called Offer-Acceptance (Google for it).
Submit order usually means submit the offer to the seller to see if it
is accepted or not.
So for example you might create an order and save it as a resource
without submitting it for acceptance. Maybe even change it before
submitting it, since changing it after acceptance means another
offer-acceptance protocol for the changes.
But Stefan's case appears to be a design for the seller's internal
system, where creating an order may mean it already has been submitted
by the customer and accepted by the seller.
Or maybe I'm wrong...
