Custom checkout field
Add additional fields on the checkout page: Append additional information in documents by selecting the required item from the drop-down. You can select an item from the list of default fields or click the Add Custom Field button to create custom meta fields by providing a custom Field Name and Meta Key. You can add a placeholder for the field and mark it as mandatory or not.
You can view, delete or edit existing meta fields.

Tracking number meta
Enter the tracking number meta field to add tracking number information. Capture the ‘tracking number meta’ from the respective plugin used for tracking.
Display state name

Transport / Sale Terms

Display price in the product table
Configure the product price/subtotal inclusive or exclusive of tax. Click on the WooCommerce tax settings link, if not done previously.
- To display all price columns inclusive of tax, choose Include tax.
- To display tax in a separate column not included within the price, choose Exclude tax.
Enable RTL support
To provide support for RTL languages like Arabic, Hebrew, etc. you can use our mPDF addon. Due to the limitations in the inbuilt DomPDF library that converts HTML to PDF, special characters or images may not be rendered properly. Therefore, it would be better if you can use our free mPDF addon plugin to generate PDFs for documents.
- PDF library: Choose between Dompdf and mpdf.
The packaging type will be applicable to all documents, except the Invoice. You can select the packaging type from the three available options:
- Pack items individually – 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.
- 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.
- Box packing (per order) – All the items belonging to order are packed into the respective boxes as per the configuration. Every order may have one or more boxes based on the configuration.
- 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.
Finally, click on the Update Settings button, to save the settings.
Whenever the PDF documents are sent as email attachments or if printed using print node, a local copy of the same will be maintained in your system. You can access it from the Temp files section.
- File path: Represents the location where the temp files are saved.
- Total files: Shows the total number of temp files.
- Automatic cleanup: Choose to auto clean up the tempfiles or not.
- Interval: Set an interval for auto cleanup. Eg: 1440 for 1 day.
