Store owners often prefer additional custom details collected at the time of checkout. Print Invoice, Packing Slip, Delivery Note & Label Plugin for WooCommerce allows customers to add additional details to the checkout page
For instance, you can ask the customer to input the Order note, VAT, GSTIN, ABN, etc., or any other company tax ID relevant to your business at the checkout. You can link this ID as order meta to display in the invoice.
