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 rock solid code, integrates with Magento's themes and works together with a range of other popular Magento modules.

      Flexible with 65+ custom options

      Easily create professional Magento pdf documents with 2 flexible layout options and 65+ custom options.

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

      User friendly functionality

      Adds a new Order Confirmation pdf document type for easy order management.

      Plus, customers can download the customised Invoice, Shipment and Credit Memo pdf documents from the frontend - even for guest orders. Save time by making it easy for customers to self service.

      Email friendly pdf attachments

      Automatically attach your customised pdf files to sales emails. Pdf file sizes are automatically optimised (average file size reduction is 30-90%) for email friendly attachments.

      Improve shipping efficiency

      Simplify shipping processes by using integrated address labels on invoice and shipment pdfs. Add SKU barcodes for more accurate warehouse packing to save hours of time.

      Choose to print the order as packing slip, to bypass the standard work flow. No more “there are no printable documents related to selected orders” errors!

      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.

      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?
      Pdf Customiser is fully multi store capable - simply configure different settings for each store set up.

      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, MW One Step Checkout, Amasty Order Attributes, Fire Checkout Customer Comment and Hello themes checkout comment.

      If you are using one of these extensions, customer order comments will appear automatically on the pdfs generated by Fooman Pdf Customiser.

      Are there any known conflicts between Pdf Customiser and other Magento extensions?
      There are several conflicts between Pdf Customiser and other Magento extensions. Refer to the Installation Instructions for more information about known conflicts and workarounds. Generally, we don't recommend that you run the extension together with other pdf extensions that rewrite Magento pdf objects.

      Can I customise pdf documents for gift purchases?
      Of course! The default setting is not to display pricing information on the packing slip. If a customer entered a gift message for the order, this will also display automatically on the packing slip (adding gift messages on the invoice pdf is also possible with a small code modification - contact us for details). Individual gift messages/notes (per item) appear on all pdf documents.

      Can I include the customer tax number on pdf documents?
      Yes. If the customer tax number is entered during checkout, this will be shown as part of the billing address by default.

      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.

      Review by Shannon
      Exactly what I was looking for
      I bought another pdf extension (that cost more than this one) and it was garbage. So I switched to Fooman Pdf and am positively glad that I did. It is exactly what I was looking for, an easy to use, clean customizable pdf. Great job with this extension! (Posted on 3/12/14)
      Review by Rob
      Does what they advertise
      Very easy to use and customize! We wanted the default module customized, and even that wasn't a problem, quick and easy support! (Posted on 28/11/14)

      Thank you so much for your excellent support! (Posted on 14/10/14)

      Great product, great service and support!
      Easy to install, easy to use. Finally I'm truly satisfied with the emails + pdf's we send out. Running into a small glitch the guys form Fooman helped out in a great way, turned out it didn't have anything to do with the extension at all. Great product, great support!! (Posted on 24/09/14)

      Review by Jimmy5566
      Must-have if you deal with Invoices
      We bought this extension to do some minor changes to the default magento PDF layout. We got more than we asked. Some important highlights are 1. the huge savings in pdf file space (1MB + to < 10kB) 2. the new ability now to print orders (default installation will not allow you to print orders) 3. the prompt and professional support we get.

      Highly recommended if you are doing a serious Magento e-store.

      Support is highly responsive and to the point. In fact, we made general enquiries prioir to purchase. Response was as fast as the technical enquiries we have later. (Posted on 20/08/14)

      Great product and after-sales!
      Had a very pleasant contact with Kristof who helped us out with a few questions from our side. The extension is working perfectly and the after sales is fast and good. Thanks! (Posted on 11/04/14)
