Easy Steps to win customers' appreciation and mask important order and invoice number
Set starting order number to protect your private information
As long as you’re not going to demonstrate the real numbers to your customers and competitors, it’s better keep this info only for your internal use. Especially, if you’ve just started your business and have processed not so many orders. The module enables you to override the default Magento numbers displaying the data you need. Simply set order number according to your needs and no one, except for your store managers, will find out your private business info. If your orders, invoices, shipments etc. include dates, you can reset them when you need and start your accounting from the scratch each new month or year. In case you don’t want to wait till the new month or year start you can reset the counter at any time just checking the Reset Counter box.
Configure your order number increment steps
In order to protect your priceless business info from your competitors use the option of Counter Step. It allows to hide the real numbers of consecutive orders. For example, you set an increment of 5; it means that if the first order has id 1, the second one will have id 6. If you operate more than one website in your Magento, you can select whether to increment intervals for all your websites or per particular site. You can also implement sequential numeration for all your stores for more convenient counting. Now your customers will see one and the same numeration format for all your store views. Random numbers are also available
