Magento 2 Custom Order Number helps online stores change order increment ID to protect sensitive business data. Also, the module attracts new customers by showing them a more professional order number system.
You've just added this product to the cart:
In Magento 2 default, order increment ID is a 9-digit number which starts from 000000001. For many reasons, store owners want to change this string structure in order numbers as well as other billing documents. As this cannot be done quickly in native Magento 2, you will need a tool to help you out.
The outcome of Custom Order Number extension for Magento 2 is to change the default string into another with more sophisticated one. The new order number is customized to contain more helpful information for store owners, yet make it harder for your competitors and customers to understand.
For example, an order placed on Mar 30th, 2018 on store 01 can be configured to have a number like ORD-01-300318-0001. This padding absolutely means nothing to others but store owners who set it.
When it comes to shopping online, customers may be so conscious about how popular your store is as well as how experienced you are on the market. Hence, buyers can have a poor impression of your business if they know either that you have not sold much through the order number or that you are not so professional.
Using Mageplaza Customer Order Number extension is a solution to impress your buyers. By changing the default string created by native Magento 2, you can make your order number as fancy as you want your customers to think.
In some regions, invoice numbers should be generated systematically and legally. Some countries take numbering invoices seriously and demand that companies must comply with stricter regulations. In this case, to get rid of a legal headache, store owners should be well aware of their numbering system.
Customer Order Number module by Mageplaza can help stores meet any local invoice number requirements by allowing them to adjust templates properly. There is no restriction of how you set the invoice number structure.
That you switch from other platforms to Magento can cause some differences in order numbering system. To make it easier to manage orders after you migrate to Magento 2, changing new order numbers to match the previous numbering rules is necessary. And, this can absolutely be done with Mageplaza Custom Order Number extension.
Your order number indicates quite a lot of sensitive information of your business. Looking at a raw order number, your competitors can figure out how many orders have been placed on your store. Through these figures, they can also know how well you are doing, and estimate your growth within a specified period. This is not healthy for your business.
Magento 2 Custom Order Number extension can help online stores protect their data by hiding sensitive numbers. While creating a complicated string that makes it incomprehensible for your competitors, you and your staff still understand the numbers based on the rules you set.
To change the order number, you only need to change its pattern on the backend. The pattern is defined by using syntax. This is an example for what you can set for the pattern: ORD-[4AN]-[4A]-[4N]-[6counter]-[storeCode]-[storeId]-[yy]-[mm]-[dd]-[orderId].
The new order ID can start from a configured number, and move up numerically based on a counter step. This counter step can be set to increase separately by store or not.
The same settings are applied to other billing documents including Invoice number, Credit Memo number, and Shipment number.
Order number formats are easily adjusted by syntax, and this helps a lot in tracking the orders.
Order number patterns can be sequential, chronological, by customer number, or by project number depending on how you set the structure on the backend.
Admins can even include date information in the order number by various date format like [yy]-[mm]-[dd]. This helps you a lot in tracking the order placement date. Also, a sequence number is placed at the end to help you differentiate the order number.
From the backend, the structure of invoice numbers and other billing documents can be configured to match that of order numbers. This function allows admins to track all billing documents more efficiently.
Admins can replace the prefix of invoice numbers with another string and keep the rest of the pattern unchanged. Thanks to this feature, store owners will be able to relate information among different customers’ billing documents.
Magento 2 Custom Order Number extension is fully compatible with Mageplaza PDF Invoice. This allows displaying accurate order numbers, invoice numbers, credit memo numbers and shipment numbers with proper formats in billing documents.Learn more

I have to say this is a really excellent tool. As a new store owner, currently, I have not had many orders so I am worried that the order number will reveal this point, and I really need a solution. Finally, a friend introduced me Custom Order Number and it really solves my concern. I myself can customize the order ID to the formats I want so that my store data is not known. Thanks for this understanding extension!
