== Description ==
The most flexible and complete solution for your WooCommerce webshop to customize your order numbers!

By default, WooCommerce uses the WordPress post ID of the order, which result in gaps between the order numbers. With this plugin you can configure the order numbers to have consecutive counters. Furthermore, the order number can contain the year, and the counter can be configured to reset each year.

20
The number format is a simple string, where # indicates the counter. 
To get order numbers like "WC-376", "WC-377", "WC-378", etc., simply set the format to "WC-#".

*   This **free basic version**, which provides **sequential numbers** and allows arbitrary text (prefix / postfix) in the numbers
25
*   The **paid advanced version**, with lots of **additional features**:

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= How can I create nice order numbers for existing orders? =

This plugin is intended for future orders. You can, however, create order numbers for existing orders in the order view in the WordPress admin section. In the top right "Order Actions" box select "Assign a new order number" and click "Save Order". Notice, however, that this will create an order number as if the order was created at that very moment.

= How can I start the counter at a value higher than 1? =

The easiest way is to configure the plugin, make one test order and then modify the counter in the plugin configuration to the value you desire.
