Fooman Pdf Customiser

  • Market leading Magento pdf customisation

    Thousands of Magento stores trust Fooman Pdf Customiser to quickly and easily customise Magento Invoice, Shipment and Credit Memo pdf documents.

    The extension features quality code by a Magento Certified Developer Plus, integrates with Magento's themes and is compatible with a wide range of popular Magento extensions.

    Flexible, good looking pdfs

    Easily create professional, user friendly Magento pdfs with 65+ custom options in the backend. Choose from 2 ready-to-use template designs in the backend, or create your own custom design by modifying the html template files.

    Add your company logo, product images and detailed product attribute information. Change page margins and fonts, add custom information, digitally sign pdfs, add detailed tax information and more (see full feature list below).

    Improve your store's efficiency

    Clever features save you time. Use integrated address labels on invoice and shipment pdfs to simplify shipping. Add SKU barcodes for more accurate warehouse packing. Allow customers to download invoice, shipment and credit memo pdfs from the frontend.

    Create a new "Order Confirmation" pdf for easy order management. You can even print the order as packing slip, to bypass the standard work flow (eliminates “there are no printable documents related to selected orders” errors!).

    Email friendly pdf attachments

    Automatically attach your customised pdf files to sales emails. Pdf file sizes are automatically optimised with file size reduction of up to 90%.

    Detailed tax settings

    Custom options give you the flexibility to include tax information required by your country or local jurisdiction.

    Add business and customer tax numbers. Plus, unlike default Magento pdfs, Pdf Customiser honours your settings to display order totals as tax inclusive or exclusive.

    Easy to use

    Easily customise pdfs in minutes from the Magento backend - without technical knowledge.

    The extension has been tested by users with basic Magento knowledge and was given a thumbs up for being easy to use.

    Developer friendly

    If the 65+ backend options aren't enough, it's easy to make advanced customisations by editing the extension's template files or the developer friendly extension code.Customise pdfs with .phtml templates, without having to deal with Zend_Pdf.

    What Our Customers Say

    “We wanted a way to improve Magento's default PDFs without having to modify code & this extension is brilliant. We now have great looking packing docs with logos and legible type. The developer has really thought of everything – everything can be done easily through the admin console. It also has support for integrated labels - it's all built in and configured, all you have to do is tick a a box to turn it on. I can't recommend this highly enough - support was 1st class as well”

    - frank265, via Magento Connect

    “This is the best PDF customizing type extension available. Having the added benefit of automatically e-mailing the PDFs to customers on order, shipment, credit memo, invoicing, etc. Great stuff. Perfect install, smooth operation and customizing in 1.6.1”

    - tandylacker, via Magento Connect

    “This brilliant extension did wonders for our order confirmation, invoices and delivery notes printouts. We also received great support from Kristoff. Every Magento install should have this extension”

    - GP Supplies, via Magento Connect

    “Great extension, installed smoothly and customer support was lightening fast when I asked how to remove the Telephone line in the US address format. I'd recommend PDF Customiser to anyone and it does Integrated Labels right out of the box! Now all I have to do is peel off the parcel label and stick it on the package. Thanks Kristof for the great (affordable) extensions and excellent service”

    - WebBod, via Magento Connect

    “One, two, three... As simple, as that. In fact, it was the easiest and most instantly-working extension, I have ever installed, although I was a bit terrified, since we are working on a Magento platform for a client, that has a lot of custom work, on a custom theme (and those who know, custom works can produce many bugs, with modules that are build to run only on base themes). Sum Up: Definitely worth the money. And keep an eye on Fooman, as they deliver outstanding extensions”

    - frankanton, via Magento Connect

    “The extension works perfectly. Essential to our business”

    - ALM72, via Magento Connect

    “This extension is very well done, and I received a perfect support. In my scenario I'm using the extension so that I can print the invoices including the barcode of each item in the order. The guys organizing the shipments receive the invoice with the barcodes, they can scan the barcodes, pick up the items, pack and send them including the invoice”

    - michele_benvenuti, via Magento Connect

    Is Pdf Customiser multi store capable?

    Can I add customer comments to the pdf?
    Fooman Pdf Customiser is compatible with the order comments entered by the customer as provided by a range of third party extensions, including Biebersdorf OrderComment, OneStepCheckout, TM Checkout fields, Aitoc Checkout fields, Magemaven OrderComment, FME Fields Manager, FME Quick Checkout, MW One Step Checkout, Amasty Order Attributes, Fire Checkout Customer Comment and Hello themes checkout comment.

    Are there any known conflicts between Pdf Customiser and other Magento extensions?

    Do I need to download and install the Fooman Email Attachments extension separately?
    There's no need - the Email Attachments extension will automatically be installed when installing Pdf Customiser. If you have previously installed Email Attachments, please uninstall it prior to installing Pdf Customiser.

    Best Extension
    This is one of the best and easiest to install extensions out there. Price is well worth it! I have a community edition and an enterprise edition and both are flawless. Customer service rocks and response time is amazing. (Posted on 8/09/16)

    Excellent Magento Module
    We have been using this module for more than a year now and it is working as expected without any issues. Additionally, the customer service experience I've had with Fooman is A+++ - simply above and beyond. I would recommend Fooman modules for any online magento business owner. (Posted on 24/08/16)

    Excellent customer support
    Excellent extension that does what it is supposed to and does it very well. I had an issue when I was trying to print some orders and it was showing an error.

    The team at Fooman had a look at it for me and quickly found the cause (user error at my end with barcode length being too long).

    When looking for Magento extensions, I always check Fooman site first! (Posted on 25/07/16)

    Highly recommend this extension and provider! (Posted on 26/09/15)
