Having your invoice numbers different from the default number sequence is needed in some countries, where the number must match an existing sequence.

Note: The following guide is relevant if you are using the template designs that are provided within the Order Printer Pro app.

It is possible to have a custom invoice number sequence in your documents through a small change to the template code. The way to do it would be to find this code in your template:

{{ name }}

And replace it with:

#{{ order_number | minus: xxxx }}

Note: You must replace the xxxx in the above code with the correct number to start your sequence.

You can also change

{{ name }}


#{{ order_number | plus: xxxx }}

If what you need instead is to increase your order number.

The order number starts at 1 for your first Shopify order, so you need to do the math and adjust the number to get the correct number series based on your needs.
