Invoice generation related to the order can be done manually by administrator or automatically, based on its setting, in plugin settings dashboard in YIT Plugins -> Pdf Invoice.
To generate an invoice manually, click on the specific button you find in “WooCommerce -> Orders” or in order detail page
In case you chose the automatic generation of your invoices, document will be automatically created in the right moment (chosen by you) when:
- order is created
- order acquires the “processing” status
- order acquires the “completed” status
Each generated invoice will be saved right inside “ywpi-pdf-invoice” folder, which is included in “uploads” folder of your WordPress installation. A new folder with all generated invoices will be created for each calendar year.
Numeration is sequential and begins from the value specified in “Next invoice number” field in plugin settings dashboard.
The value specified in the image automatically increases and shows next invoice number that will be generated.
If you change this value and save new settings, the first new generated invoice will no longer follow the previous numeration and will begin from the new specified value.
You can add a prefix and/or a suffix to the invoice number by changing the invoice name format in “Invoice number format”field.
To enable the generation of shipping document, activate “Enable shipping list” option.
The document can be generated only manually by site administrator, from the specific button in “WooCommerce -> Orders” or in order detail page.
Each generated document can be destroyed and regenerated at any time. To apply an action to the invoice and/or packing slip, go to the order detail page and click on the specific button(s) on the right side.
Once generated, the invoice can be downloaded or open in a new window in the same browser, depending on the setting in plugin settings dashboard.
Admin side, access to invoice and/or shipping document occurs through the specific button in “WooCommerce Orders” or in order detail page.
