A delivery note is a document enclosed within the shipment of goods which contains a list of the description, unit, and quantity of the goods delivered. It is not a document which is compulsory for transactions but it is appreciated if your store is able to print delivery note and send it along with the shipment because it is mutually beneficial to both buyers and sellers.
Buyers will have an overview of what they ordered and what has been sent to them since the delivery note describes if anything is missing from the original order due to lack of stock, unavailability etc. Since a copy of the delivery note is signed and returned to the seller by the recipient, the copy serves as a proof of the delivery for a seller.
Still, the most important question remains, how to print delivery notes in your WooCommerce store? As I have already mentioned, it is not an important document. Thus spending too much time on the delivery note would be unwise. So the simplest solution would be installing WebToffee’s Print Invoice, Packing Slip, Delivery Note & Label Plugin for WooCommerce in your store.
