Customers purchase order number entry and printing

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

         I have a client who has customers who require that they have the ability to enter their purchase order number when creating an order and also they need to see this in the email that they receive as well as on any printed order. I have suggested that they could use the customer delivery instructions field however the customers purchase order number is not displayed on the email the customer receives. I have search the forums for a similar requirement but unfortunately I was unable to find any thing. If somebody has come up with an idea how I can incorporate this into the order entry during checkout and how to have it printed on the order as well as the email I would be very grateful for the help.

Best Regards,

Peterp

What version of CubeCart is being used?

The email template has available {$DATA.customer_comments} which should be what the related text-entry box contains. The admin's Order Invoice should also have {$order.customer_comments} available.

The customer_comments should already be available to the skin templates, the templates would just need to be edited to show it.

But for a distinct, searchable, sortable, dedicated column to collect and hold a customer's PO number, that can be done fairly easily.

Be back soon.

Hi Brian,

              Thanks for this I thought that would be a way of doing it however if you come up with a way of allowing a special field for customers Purchase order number then this would be far more ideal.

Thanks again very nuch appreciated
