Customizing PrestaShop Invoices

Customizing PrestaShop Invoices

Your customers will receive PDF invoices which you can preview from your Orders section in the back office. Sometimes you might want minor modifications to the layout - this article is precisely about that.

Modifying invoices can be helpful to promote your store - see some examples before where discount codes were listed in the invoices - that is a great idea.

Useful PrestaShop Invoices Settings

Let’s explore the PrestaShop Invoices configuration found at the back office → Order → Invoices page.

Here are some options I recommend to turn on for my customers:

Option Value Description
Enable invoices Yes You must send invoices for customers, that’s law in every country
Enable product image Yes Invoices with product images look better
Invoice Prefix Any value you want Prefix it with the shop name acronym or something
Add current year to invoice number Yes This helps a lot with the search when your store has been online 3-5 years
Reset sequential invoice number at the beginning of the year No Hard to keep track of the invoices after a few years

Other options, “Legal free text” or “Footer text,” can be used to thank your customer for shopping in your store.

How To Edit PrestaShop Invoice Layout

There are no ways to modify the PrestaShop invoice template in the back office, so you will need to jump into the file system and adjust invoice.tpl file.

You might need to hire a developer to do that if you don’t know HTML essentials. Finally, make a backup of that file if you make a mistake - you will be able to restore it later.
