In the current eCommerce age, your store needs a little something special that sets it apart from the rest. You have to ask yourself why Bob and Joe use MY store instead of the next one?
But don’t worry, this doesn’t call for huge changes to your store – it’s quite the opposite. It’s amazing how far something as minuscule as a customized invoice can go, and result in your store looking more professional and making a lasting impression on your customer.
Today we will be looking at Order Printer Pro, a Shopify app that allows you to achieve these aforementioned customized invoices effortlessly, and so much more.
What is Order Printer Pro?
Order Printer Pro is an app available on the Shopify App store, which allows you to easily create, design, and print invoices, packing slips, draft orders, and returns forms for your Shopify orders.
You can then print out these documents yourself, or even configure the app to send these documents (for example, invoices) as a PDF to your customers automatically.
Order Printer Pro provides you with fully customizable PDF templates, giving you the power to showcase your brand and leave your customers with an invoice that’s not an eyesore! The app is also compatible with templates made for Shopify’s default Order Printer, giving you the flexibility to choose out of thousands of templates available online.
Now that you’ve got an idea of what it’s all about, let’s dive into the features!
Custom Template Designer
Order Printer Pro’s templates are built from HTML, CSS and Liquid – meaning they are 100% customizable to morph to your brand’s identity. It might sound daunting, but these three coding languages are very intuitive. After a few YouTube tutorials, you’ll be styling your templates like a pro!
Of course, no coding is needed if you want to use the templates as is (they are already gorgeous!)
Out of the box, the app includes templates for the following:
- Receipts / Invoices
- Packing slips
- Returns forms
- Quote for Draft orders
- Refund & Credit notes
With a simple one-time configuration, you can automate the proccess of emailing invoice documents to customers. This saves you and your customers precious time, as well as paper! This feature alone is what makes this app extremely useful, especially for stores dealing with a lot of invoices.
Easy text editing and translating
Every included template features translations for over 20 languages, allowing you to communicate clearly with international customers. Editing the text part of documents is simple and will enable you to convey your brand’s message.
Impressively, the app also has synergy with multiple useful Shopify features, such as with Shopify’s multi-currency, which changes the invoice document according to the customer’s currency of choice.
Order Printer Pro is also optimized for Shopify Mobile and Shopify POS, meaning you can access and edit the app anywhere.
Order Printer Pro allows users to choose between two pricing options, Free or Unlimited.
The free plan is ideal for stores that get less than 50 orders per month, and is as the name implies, 100% free! However, after implementing this app, you might find yourself growing beyond 50 monthly orders!
Just because you aren’t paying doesn’t mean you’re missing out – free users still have access to the following features:
- Print and export in bulk
- Print and export draft orders
- Automated PDF delivery
- Customizable templates
Stores with more than 50 monthly orders have to subscribe to the Unlimited plan for $10 per month to keep using the app; this includes the same features as listed above.
It’s time to put our money where our mouth is. Let’s see what this app is capable of.
Earlier this year, Shopify released an update integrating packaging slips on the platform. To access Shopify’s default packaging slip feature, navigate over to the Orders tab, select and order, then click on the More Actions dropdown.
This does get the job done, but the results are rather… unappealing. (See below)
However, if you scroll down a bit in the More Actions dropdown, you’ll find the option to create the packaging slip using Order Printer Pro (if you have it installed of course.) Then you’re free to customize and create your own packaging slip.
