The packing list provides essential information to the customer and others involved in the transaction, subject to shipping. A packing list can be used as a supporting document in case of any conflict between conveyor and exporter regarding the cargo. It is also used by Customs for clearance and entry into foreign countries.

To file a claim with the shipping or insurance company in the event of cargo damage or loss, a packing list can be given as a validation document.

Including a packing list along with an invoice when you are shipping a package, is best practice, which establishes an extra line of communication between you and the customer.

WebToffee provides this functionality with it’s Print Invoice, Packing Slip, Delivery Note & Label Plugin for WooCommerce.

All the documents that are integral to shipping (like PDF invoices, packing slips, delivery notes, and shipping/address labels)will be automatically generated with this WooCommerce extension.

Once you have installed and activated this plugin, a new section is available in the WordPress menu titled Invoice/Packing.

Packing Slip window is categorized into two tabs:

    Very superficial reply to janet and documentation

    So you write “Existing Order Meta” but no where do your documentation explain WHAT an ORDER META Look like? How about CREATE a page with a list of the META you can use?

      Hi,

      Since the metadata vary from site to site and it will depend on the additional plugin that users install in their site that are related to orders, it is not possible to list out all order meta. To give you an idea, the data in the custom fields are of order details page is an example for order meta.

      Hi,

      You can add custom fields or metadata stored with order details on the packing list via the Additional Fields > Add Existing Order Meta. You can use the database key in which the data is stored as meta key and enter a field name of your choice that will be displayed.

      Reach us via support link above for further queries. We will be publishing an article soon documenting these separately.
