Ordernumbers for WooCommerce

We are currently unable to provide proper support!

For the last few months we have been very busy working on some huge, very time-consuming and time-sensitive projects, so our support was very limited and we were unable to provide proper support in our forums! We now have a huge backlog of requests from our customers, which we are trying to clear bit by bit. Unfortunately, this takes longer than we anticipated, so our response time is not yet up to par. We are trying our best to improve this situation as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!

TOPIC: My order numbers are skipping digits randomly

My order numbers are skipping digits randomly 14 Jun 2017 21:54 #1

For example one order number is #0772, the next one is #0774 and the next one is #0778 and so on why its not going 72,73,74,75....?

Here is a screenshot, if you can help me by telling me what to type in the settings that would help, thank you.

Dear Jaime,
There are some possible causes for the issue you observe:
a) What is your exact order number format? If you have e.g. "[####/2]", then the counter will have four digits and increase by 2 (i.e. what you observe)
b) Do you have other plugins installed, which might for technical reasons create orders / suborders, which are not shown as real orders, but which will still be assigned an order number? Examples are the YITH Multivendor plugin, which creates one additional order for each vendor in the cart. The particular case with the YITH Multivendor plugin can be worked around ( open-tools.net/forum/advanced-ordernumbe...-suborders.html#7868 ), but there might be other plugins causing a similar issue, too.

Best regards,
Reinhold

I only have paypal pro payflow, smtp postman and no other plugins I see could be adding order numbers, please take a look at this spreadsheet of my orders and see a snippet of posts created I highlighted the orders and see why is it skipping numbers? Maybe a refund?

Dear Jaime,
Could you please send us the WooCommerce System Status by e-mail (office@open-tools.net): Go to the WooCommerce admin area, menu "WooCommerce" => "System status" => Button "Get system report" => Button "Copy for Support", to copy the system report to memory and paste it into a mail (Ctrl+V or Option+V on a Mac, or use the right mouse button -> "Paste" in the mail).

That system report contains a comprehensive list of all plugins and the most important settings (but no sensitive data like passwords or usernames), so it should give me a better overview about your installation.

The order number format you mention (#0) does not seem correct, as this order number format would cause numbers like 7780, 7790, 7800, 7810, etc. (i.e. it will always have a trailing 0 after the counter). Can you please make a screenshot of the order number configuration page, so I can see all details of your settings?

Best regards,
Reinhold

PS: If you prefer a refund instead of me trying to get things working, please tell me.
