Fooman Order Number Customiser (Magento 1)

  • Fully flexible Magento order numbers

    Fully customise order, invoice, shipment and credit memo numbers using any combination of letters, numbers and dates/times.

    Custom order numbers (compared to Magento's default numbering system):

    • Are more useful to your business
    • Look more professional to customers
    • Can be used to comply with legal requirements or local customs for order numbers

    Consistent order, invoice, shipment and credit memo numbers

    Choose to use the same number for order, invoice, shipment and credit memo numbers (when a new invoice, shipment or credit memo is created, it will 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.

    Feature List

    Fully customise order, invoice, shipment and credit memo numbers:

    • Use any combination of letters, numbers and dates/times to create your ultimate custom numbering system
    • Add fully automated order dates/times in a wide range of formats - e.g. #01467/Dec14, #01467-2014/12, #01467-12/01/14/0925...
    • Set custom increments for order numbers – E.g. 3 sequential orders with custom increment set to 10 would be: ORDER-01467, ORDER-01477, ORDER-01487...
    • Use the same order number for associated invoice/shipment/credit memo numbers - plus add prefixes, suffixes or other customisations to differentiate these numbers - e.g. ORDER-04598, INVOICE-04598, SHIP-04598 and CREDIT-04598...
    • Set the length of order numbers via custom padding - e.g. ORDER-4598, ORDER-04598, ORDER-004598...
    • Use individual order number settings for each store - e.g. BABY-04598, TEEN-04598...
    • Easily continue from where you left off under an existing numbering system - e.g. first order can be ORDER-0001, ORDER-04598 or anywhere in between
    • Automatic duplicate separation
    • Easy set up in the Magento backend
    • Quality extension - unit tested and supported by automated testing
    • Does not change any historical data - only future invoices, credit memos and shipments will be changed

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I change my existing orders numbers from before I started using this extension?
    You can only customise new order numbers. It is not possible to change existing order numbers, as these have already been communicated to customers and in many cases, used for accounting purposes.

    How do I continue an existing numbering system?
    As well as starting a new numbering system, you can also continue an existing numbering system, using a more streamlined format. For example, an order number of 1005001 under the existing numbering system could become ORDER-5001, 2012/10-5001 (or another combination) in the new numbering system.

    Which Magento order number does the extension customise?
    Custom order numbers will apply to order numbers visible to the customer (increment ID). The standard Magento internal database identification number is left unchanged.

    Are there any known conflicts between Fooman Order Number Customiser and other Magento extensions?
    There is one small limitation with using Fooman Order Number Customiser with iDEAL (Dutch payment processor) - see the related FAQ below. There are no other known conflicts between Order Number Customiser and other Magento extensions.

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

    Can I use Fooman Order Number Customiser with iDEAL (Dutch payment processor)?
    Yes, however please note that your order number can only contain numbers and letters.

    If I want to use the same number for order, invoice, shipment and credit memo numbers, do I need to use the Fooman Same Order Invoice Number extension as well?
    This is a feature of Fooman Order Number Customiser, so there's no need to install Fooman Same Order Invoice Number as well.
