The complete solution to automatically generate and manage all your invoices.

Regardless of the product and service types you sell, the correct invoicing of orders is an essential element for your store management. Invoices are the official documents for sales and include all the most important information related to the order: customer’s data, products (or services) purchased, amount to pay and possible shipping costs or taxes, and much more. An effective invoicing system can be the strong point of your e-commerce and a guarantee to prevent bureaucratic mistakes or time-consuming legal matters from encountering (income tax return, disputes with customers, returns, refunds, etc.).

The nice thing about selling online is the possibility to get rid of paper invoices or invoices managed with obsolete software: if you run a WooCommerce-based e-commerce site and use our YITH WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips, you will be able to generate and manage your invoices very easily and quickly.

Our plugin covers all management requirements not available in the basic system available in WooCommerce: you can, for example: configure your invoice numbering based on your preferences, export invoices into a CSV file or download them as PDF, enable the automatic backup of invoices on your Dropbox or Google Drive account, manage credit notes and shipping lists, edit and regenerate all invoices with one click. A versatile and constantly updated tool to make your life easier and have full management of any invoicing aspect of your online shop.

Choose whether to generate invoices for specific orders manually or for all orders automatically

You can install and use the plugin to generate invoices manually for specific orders (you can choose the date to show on the invoice) or enable the option to generate invoices automatically for all the orders placed in your shop (and define the order status that will trigger the invoice generation).

Generate invoices manually or automatically
Invoice sequential numbering

Choose the invoice numbering: use the order number or ID or a sequential numbering

Numbering invoices correctly is essential for the right management of orders and documents. For this reason, our plugin offers different options: you can assign the order ID or number to the related invoices or set a sequential numbering, starting from a specific number. You can choose to reset the numbering on December 31 every year and enable the option to prevent invoices from being mistakenly generated with the same number. Each option has been developed to make the invoice management easier.


Monitor and manage invoices through the dedicated dashboard

From version 3.0, you will find a dedicated panel from which you can fully manage all the invoices generated in your shop. You can also bulk generate invoices, download them as PDF, regenerate and delete them: a quick and easy option to apply an action to multiple orders at once.

Invoices dashboard
Proforma invoices

Generate proforma invoices or receipts for your customers

The plugin doesn’t manage invoices only: you can also enable receipts and proforma invoices for your shop’s orders. With just a simple click, your customers can get the PDF file of all documents directly in their My Account page.

Manage shipping lists for products physically shipped to customers

In addition to invoices, you will be able to generate and manage delivery notes (shipping lists) for the products you need to physically ship to your customers. In the note, you can show the weight and size of the products and the shipping method used, with the related cost.

Packing slips
Credit notes

Easily manage refunds

The plugin allows you to easily generate credit notes for all refunded orders. From version 3.0, you can also show amounts with positive values in credit notes (required in some countries like Germany or Spain).

Configure the format of all your documents (file name, prefix, suffix, etc.)

You can customize the format of all documents generated in your shop. You can set a default format and choose whether to configure a prefix (a text or number to insert before the invoice number, such as YITH-1234) or a suffix (a text to insert after the invoice number, such as 1234-YITH).

Invoice file naming

Create an automatic backup of all invoices on Dropbox or Google Drive

Do you want more security and save a copy of all your invoices on a Cloud service or upload them online to easily share them with your accountant? With YITH WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips, you can enable the automatic backup of all documents generated with the plugin on your Dropbox or Google Drive account.

Require your customers to complete the VAT or SSN fields at the checkout and insert the data in the generated invoices

If you need to include your customers’ VAT or SSN in the invoices, you can enable the option to request this data at the checkout and choose whether to make them required or not. If the customer completes the fields, the data will be automatically added to the documents (invoices, credit notes, etc.).

YITH PDF Invoices & Packing Slips

Use the new integrated builder to create unlimited templates

Choose one of the 9 templates included and customize it with the new Gutenberg-based builder. You can add text and image blocks to it, and customize the style and colors to build unlimited layouts for the invoices to send to your customers. Thanks to the builder, you can, for example, create different templates to be used during specific times of the year (Christmas, Black Friday, etc.) and send your customers professional and captivating documents.

A complete solution to be 100% compliant with the Italian law

If your shop is based in Italy you can use the plugin to enable the Electronic Invoicing System (Sistema di fatturazione elettronica) for the Italian Agenzia delle Entrate. You will be able to download an XML file of each invoice generated.

We do our best to also include compatibility with the most popular WordPress and WooCommerce plugins available on the market.

You can use this plugin with*:

YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager

With YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager, you can add or remove fields in an easy way. The combination with YITH WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips allows you to edit the fields (VAT and SSN) that the PDF invoice plugin adds to the checkout.

YITH WooCommerce Delivery Date

With the YITH WooCommerce Delivery Date plugin you can allow your customers to choose a specific delivery date for the products they purchase. The integration between the two plugins will allow you to show the delivery date information in the PDF document.

YITH WooCommerce Deposits / Down Payments

YITH WooCommerce Deposits / Down Payments is a plugin designed to offer users the opportunity to leave a deposit for a specific order, which they will then finish paying at a later time.

Using these two plugins combined grants users the chance to generate an invoice for each operation performed using YITH WooCommerce Deposits / Down Payments.
Every order will generate two invoices: one once the deposit is made, and another one once the total is paid.


YITH EU VAT, OSS & IOSS automatically applies the right VAT to your products for EU companies which VAT number is valid for INTRASTAT.

When using these two plugins together, the VAT inserted by the customer can be shown on the invoice generated with PDF Invoice.

When the plugin is used with YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor, also vendors will be able to generate their own invoices with their own template and logo. The automatic generation of invoices, though, is disabled, so invoices must be generated manually from the order details.

YITH WooCommerce Order & Shipment Tracking

YITH WooCommerce Order & Shipment Tracking allows you to enter shipping data for each order, in order to allow users to track the status of their products

The integration between these two plugins allows you to enter order tracking details (created using YITH WooCommerce Order & Shipment Tracking) in the shipping documents (created using YITH WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips).

    A lot of options but worth itAs someone who's completely new to this, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the options but the support team helped me a lot. I would have preferred getting a phone call to solve it all in the moment instead of going through the tickets process but I can't complain, everything's working as expected now
