Advanced Ordernumbers for VirtueMart

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Plugin development ceased, all plugins made available freely (GPL)

With great sadness we have to announce that we are ceasing development of all our VirtueMart, WooCommerce and Joomla plugins. Effective immediately, all our plugins -- even those that were paid downloads -- are made available for free from our homepage (GPL license still applies), but we cannot and will not provide any support anymore.

It has been a great pleasure to be part of the thriving development communities of VirtueMart as well as WooCommerce. However, during the last year it became painstakingly clear that in addition to a full-time job, a young family and several other time-consuming hobbies at professional level (like being a professional singer) the plugin development and the support that it requires is not sustainable and is taking its toll. It has been an honor, but it is now time to say good bye!

System Skips invoicenumber 02 Nov 2016 13:50 #1

Hi just a question,

Sometimes the system skips an invoicenumber. Any suggestion where this come from? Possible that it is because of a lazy server? When the system skips a ordernumber, i guess it can happen when a client cancel a payment, but an invoicenumber? an invoice (with invoicenumber) should even when canceled, be vissible in the system right? Not just a skiped number for example from invoicenumber 007 to 009?

Any idea where this comes from?

Thanks in advance and best regards, M

Dear Digitalconnect,
What exactly is your invoice number format? The counter depends crucially on this setting, so knowing the exact invoice number format is the main key to the question.

The only cases I can imagine when an invoice number is skipped are:
- The invoice number is set to (or include) the order number. As order numbers can have skips, invoice numbers will inherit them.
- The invoice number format contains a counter with an increment larger than one, i.e. it contains something like [#/4]
- Someone manually modified the counter in the plugin configuration dialog.

Apart from this, I have not seen any skips so far.

Best regards,
