Another useful tool from Xtento’s portfolio is Order Number Customizer. The extension allows you to change Magento order numbers and other sales related numbers according to your business requirements, so the new number format can include letters, date/time variables, prefixes, suffixes, counters or random numbers. One of the main benefits you will get with the module is the ability to protect your sales by hiding such information as volumes of sales.
Xtento Order Number Customizer, which is available for both Magento 2 and 1, lets you customize order, invoice, shipment, and credit memo numbers. You can change the default number format not only to protect your ecommerce business, but to comply with local or legal requirements. Another stunning feature offered by the extension is the ability to utilize the order number as the invoice/shipment/credit memo number, so the same number is used for all transactions. Furthermore, Order Number Customizer allows you to use variables in the number format. Xtento Order Number Customizer supports:
- Counter – +10 for each order; can be reset daily, weekly, or yearly.
- Date / Time – from year to minute with or without leading zeros.
- Store ID – ID of the store where the order was created.
- Random number – a completely random number that consists of 3-9 digits.
