Hi,

I am using v1.5.1.3 and using a custom theme
http://emmashome.co.uk/shop

Basically I need a way for all buyers (even those using guest account) to get an invoice of there order, registered users can view the invoice online so I am not to worried about them.

I searched the forums and Google and figure the best way to do this is to send the invoice attached in the order confirmation e-mail but I can't think of how to do it. I had a look around and found an extension to auto generate an invoice number and I figure the only way to do it would be to build the invoice (maybe as html) in the file where the confirmation e-mail gets sent (I haven't found the specific file yet) and then attach it to the confirmation e-mail to send it out.

Does anyone know if this would work or not and if there is a better way to do this.

Thanks very much in advance.

Newbie

You could use fido-x's auto account mod and make everybody have an account

It's in model/checkout/order.php
around line 187 in 1.5.1.3, you will see a line "// Send out order confirmation mail"

The html template is mail/order.tpl

maybe instead of the order confirmation, turn it into an invoice and just email the invoice.
but I don't know how that works with the auto invoice generation number mod.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

I am also using 1.5.1.3 but unlike leapDesign, there is no invoice generated at any status of my customer orders, that can be viewed/printed/emailed by the registered user. I have seen extensions for sale for this, does that mean that 1.5.1.3 does not have this feature? How can my customers see their actual invoice unless I manually print it? I have tried the customer order link provided in the email at all the different order statuses in my system and none of them have an option to view the order invoice, or result in the customer account having an invoice to view.

I can view the invoice from admin and 'print' it (or probably save as a PDF and email it manually) but the link that is provided in a customer email just goes to their order history. Even if I have generated an invoice number for them, the actual invoice is not able to be seen anywhere.

I have looked at hundreds of posts about customer invoices but none address this seemingly simple issue - how can customers view their invoice?

I have also played around with trying to generate an email with the invoice attached using instructions from this thread
http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php ... il+invoice

And I have read about the issues with auto-generating invoices which appeared to have been reinstated by Daniel at some point.

My store is here...

I am using Yooseren template with customisation.

Thanks

Or you could use my Paypal Invoicing System Mod I am about finished with. Will allow you to invoice customers from your opencart admin and never login to paypal. You'll have complete control over the invoices and IPN updates opencart database once invoice has been paid.
Here is details on it: http://www.paypalinvoice.com/

It's not yet available.
