WooCommerce Custom Order Numbers

Overview #

The WooCommerce Order Numbers plugin allows you to customize the order numbers, of your WooCommerce site, in sequential order numbering or by Order ID or in a pseudorandom way. 

The WooCommerce Order Numbers plugin works equally well for new and existing stores. It allows you to use a custom prefix and suffix for all your order numbers, use order date as a prefix, set order number width, enable order tracking by custom numbers, enable search by custom numbers, and enable order numbers editing.

The WooCommerce Order Numbers plugin converts order numbers into a sequential format and allows you to sort, delete, and change order numbers easily.

To keep the existing numbers of the orders when migrating to a new site, start by downloading the Sequential Order Numbers Pro plugin on the old site (A) before exporting the orders onto the new site (B).

Order numbers on WordPress are not sequential because every item in the database (orders, posts, images, and pages) is assigned a unique, auto-incremented post ID.

The Order Numbers Module Options page will be displayed.

Order Number Custom Prefix Value that will be prefixed to all order numbers. This value will be prefixed to all existing order numbers.
Order Number Date Prefix Format of the order date that will be prefixed to the order numbers. This value will be prefixed to all existing order numbers. This value will be passed directly to PHP `date` function, so most of PHP date formats can be used. The only exception is using `\` symbol in date format, as this symbol will be excluded from date. You can use formats such as Y-m-d- or mdy.
Order Number Width Minimum width of the order number without prefix.  Zeros will be added to the left of the order number if its length is less than the set minimum. This will change the minimum width of all existing order number numbers.
