Customers are more likely to return to your shop if they see thousands of orders from people who trust your services.

Using this option you can easily export e-shop data to your CRM system.

Product questions

Will I be able to continue an existing numbering system?

Is it possible to use consecutive order numbers for different stores/views?

Yes, you can setup the consecutive order numbers as well as a global prefix and increment across multiple stores. Read on to get a step-by-step instruction.

Can I customize order numbers on a store-view level?

Yes, of course. You can configure the settings for order, invoice, shipment and credit memo numbers per each store view.

Can I reset an order number counter on a regular basis?

Yes, Magento order number can be reset with our Custom Order Number extension. There are 3 time periods available: reset order numbers each day, month or year. Moreover, you can choose not to reset the counter at all. Go on reading to learn how to make it correctly. 

Can I change numbers of already existing orders, invoices and shipments?

The extension settings are non-retroactive. This means that only newly created order will be affected by any customizations made with the Custom Order Number extension.

Can I add a suffix instead of a prefix?

Yes, sure. The number format of each document type is highly customizable. That will help you to adjust the numbers to your requirements.

Is it possible to make only the shipment number equal to the order number and leave invoice number unchanged?

Yes, such a setting is easily achievable due to flexible extension settings. Each option – Invoice number, Shipment, Credit memo numbers – can be set to either be the same as order number or different.

Can I set a random number increment?

Yes, with this Custom Order Number module you will be able to change order number increment so that your competitors won’t be able to detect sales made in your store.

What happens with multiple invoices on one order?

 If you have multiple invoices per order, a duplicate separator will be used to differentiate the invoices, e.g. "10000000123-1", "10000000123-2", etc. This also applicable to other documents numbers.

What types of Magento order numbers are affected by this extension?

Only numbers seen by customers are changed. Internal Magento data is not affected. Also, the custom order numbers won't affect the efficient RMA request process organized with the Magento RMA extension.

could be better - some things to fix
Tomek Jordan
Hi. this extension is not bad, but it can run your store into trouble. why?
1. you cannot preview numbers that you will have - next number
2. there is not validation for duplication - so if you give wrong counter id, your next order will be saved with bugged number, and you will not be able to crate shipment/invoice. it should have de-duplication like Fooman extension does - if there is the same id in database - Fooman extension adds suffix (-1) to numbering and correct scheme is not broken
3. start counter from is not proper - it adds +1 to your number, so if you don't know this "hint" you will start numbering from 2 or have gap in numbers. this "bug" should be corrected asap.
4. if you delete orders, you are in trouble with numbering
5. reset numbers in not working on Jan next year. or am I wrong? since you have no preview for numbers - you have no New Years eve - because you must track and wait for order if its numbers are correct.
extension is not bad, but could be fixed. especially it would be good to develop COMBO with DELETE ORDERS COMPLETELY (invoices/shipments), and those 2 could save hours and troubles for each store. but custom order number should cooperate with DELETE ORDER - if you delete order, number scheme should be reverted back

works flawlessly!
We have been searching for this extension for a while and this extension from Amasty works perfectly without any issues what so ever. It just works as advertised. I would definitely recommend this product.

I like the features
Keeping order data in confidence is a tricky problem for m e and I had been searching the solution for a long while. Thanks to this addon I can hide the real data from competitors. Moreover I got one more useful feature that I have been searching for. Now I can use prefixes in front of the invoice numbers.

Great support

Worthy tool for specific needs
Trying to expand our apparel store business we started r unning it in 3 languages that caused us some inconveniences with order numbers. Not that we wanted to mask our real numbers, we just needed to separately manage orders from different store views. So, the increment step and prefix options for multiple store views were a real catch.
As for the technical part we didn’t notice anything to pick at. The plugin ran out of the box making us sigh with relief. Hope there won’t be any troubles with it in future as well.

very useful extension
I needed to change order number for inner purposes. I'm happy I've found that extension as it helps me with that. This is my second extension by Amasty. Thanks!

Great extension - especially for multistore
Taylor Johnson
This extension does exactly what we need. We run a multistore setup, and want to be able to easily identify the store by the order number, as well as have the order numbers increment together. This extension allows us to have a prefix for each store, so the order numbers are, for example: AA10123, BB10124, AA10125, etc. The native magento order numbering did not offer this flexibility, and it wasn't as easy to read!

A bunch of helpful features in one module
I easily keep all my inner numbers under control with this tool. The feature of placing appropriate prefixes made my work much easier.

Keeps all my accounting under control
I'm totally satisfied with the extension - its functionality and its quality. I really appreciate that now no one knows my exact numbers except for my managers and me.

Easily customizable numbers
I've just purchased the extension, actually for me the most crucial thing is that I can set the number format according to my local accounting requirements. This is very convenient.

Exactly what I've expected
Installed the extension two days ago. I'm fully satisfied with it's quality. The numbers are really easy to edit and now only our managers know all order info. Thank you, Amasty - you are great as usual!
Aug 07, 2013
Excellent! Great extension!
It was so easy to install the module! It would be great if you could implement random part of the order number to be added automatically. Like {random} to use in template.
