Basic Ordernumbers for WooCommerce

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!

Endless possibilities to have order/invoice numbers the way YOU like them

Whether you want simple order/invoice numbers with a prefix, or whether you want the invoice number to match the order number, or whether you even want separate number counters for each country or even customer, OpenTools  Order Numbers for WooCommerce is the solution you need!

This free Basic Order Numbers for WooCommerce version of the plugin allows you to have a sequential counter and arbitrary prefixes and postfixes. Variables (like the year, month, shipping country, etc.) are not supported.

By default, WooCommerce uses the WordPress post ID of the order, which result in gaps between the order numbers. With this plugin you can configure the order numbers to have consecutive counters, also including order-specific information like the date, address etc.

The number format is a simple string, where # indicates the counter. In the basic plugin version, no variables are supported. Toe get order numbers like "WC-1-Webshop", "WC-2-Webshop", etc., simply set the format to "WC-#-Webshop".

In the Advanced Ordernumber Plugin, [...] indicates an order-specific variable.
To get order numbers like "WC-2015-1", "WC-2015-2", etc., simply set the format to "WC-[year]-#".

The plugin comes in two flavors:

  • The free basic version, which provides sequential numbers and allows arbitrary, fixed text (prefix/postfix) in the order number
  • The paid advanced version, with lots of additional features:

Sequential order numbers with prefix/postfix/arbitrary format X X
