Fooman Same Invoice Order Number

  • Consistent order, invoice, shipment and credit memo numbers

    By default, Magento assigns a separate number to orders and related documents (invoices, shipments and credit memos). Once installed, this extension ensures that when a new invoice, shipment or credit memo is created, it will always take the same number as the associated order.

    For example, for order #1000, the associated invoice would be #1000, the shipment #1000, and the credit memo also #1000. This is a simple and popular approach for tidy record keeping and easy document identification.

    Automatic duplicate separation

    In the event of multiple invoices, shipments or credit memos associated with the same order, a duplicate separator will be used.

    For example, the first invoice would be #1000, the second #1000-1, the third #1000-2, and so on.

    Feature List

    • New invoices, shipments and credit memos are automatically assigned the same number as the related order
    • Automatic duplicate separation in the event of multiple invoices, shipments and/or credit memos associated with the same order
    • Does not change any historical data - only future invoices, credit memos and shipments will be changed

    Want to take it further? Our Fooman Order Number Customer extension provides the ability to fully customise order, invoice, shipment and credit memo numbers using any combination of letters, numbers and dates.

    It is not working in
    It is not working in I deleted all my orders and tried to get this working. No luck. All new invoices start with +1 last default Magento number. If you don't update this extension please let you customers know about this issue.

    Our response:
    Thanks for the feedback. The issue sounds like it is coming from the use of an extension that deletes orders. We have written about the pitfalls of using such an extension years ago here If you are able to reproduce this without deleting orders please let us know steps to reproduce and we will take a look. Our tests the extension working on (Posted on 14/09/15)

    I am using magento 1.6.1. I have used this extension before (older version) to fix a paypal problem that was causing an error. Exception' with message 'Wrong order ID: "200000016".

    Well upon completion it is not actually changing the invoice number like it used to. (Posted on 8/09/12)

    This is working great for orders created from the Magento website, BUT I am also use the M2E extension for syncing with Ebay. All the orders which are being imported from Ebay are using the invoices numbers following on from the out of sync ones, not the order number. Has anyone else got this issue and if they have do you have an idea as to what to do to fix this??
