Attaching a Packing Slip along with the invoice while shipping a package can build up an additional line of communication between the sender and the customer.
Print Invoice, Packing Slip, Delivery Note & Label Plugin for WooCommerce allows you to print packing slips per item in an order. Let’s walk through the steps to print packing slips per item in an order.
- First of all, install and activate the plugin, a new menu Invoice/Packing appears in the WordPress dashboard.
- Head on to Invoice/Packing > General Settings menu.
From the Advanced tab, you can select the packaging type from the three available options as:
- Pack items individually: This allows you to pack each item in the cart separately. For example, if an order has 2 quantities of product A and 1 quantity of product B, then, there will be three packages consisting of one item each from the order.
- Box packing: If packing items individually or weight-based packing does not suit your business, then you can customize box sizes based on your requirement.
To define a new box size, click the Add Box button. All cart items are packed into custom boxes defined in Box Size settings. The best fit box is chosen automatically from the defined boxes. This box dimension and weight settings are applicable only when Box Packing is selected. Based on your requirement, you can enable or disable a particular box using the checkbox under the Enabled column of the respective box rule.
- Single package per order: All the items belonging to the order are packed together into a single package. Every order will have a respective package.
Packing slip per item in an order
In order to generate the packing list per item in an order, select the option Pack items individually from the Packaging type dropdown. Now that the settings are in place, you can customize the packing slip into your desired format and use it for printing.
For instance, let us try printing packing slip for an order consisting of two items as shown below.
Packing slip generated separately for two different items of an order is illustrated above.
