Woo Instant Notifications


Print automatically receipts on a thermal printer for your WooCommerce order.The Plugin allows you to customize the data on the printed receipts via shortcodes, triggers based on order status change, built in templates for order notification and packing slip. Works with any thermal printers with paper size 58mm, 80mm and 100mm. How it works? The plugin sends formatted plain text emails based on order status change. On the receiving side a Mozilla thunderbird email autoprint addon is used with filters in order to print the receipts on the thermal printer. The plugin is very useful for online shops as the order notification receipts are automatically printed and the person responsible for order processing just sees the receipts and processes the order (Example – the person responsible for order processing goes to work in the morning and sees what is ordered and processes the orders without the need of even opening wordpress admin section. The receipts can also be used for marketing, coupon codes printing and sent with the ordered products etc.) To get most of this Plugin you will need our WooPrinter WiFi which can be purchased from: Our Online Store.

We are using it in our restaurant here in Plovdiv. It saves a lot of time and helps order processing as orders are printed in our kitchen and our cooks directly process online orders. We even use the receipts for delivery

Not easy to install for instant printing, using out dated app, nothing special & not worth for money paid. Edited : Okay, after a lot of trial, email like yahoo & google keep rejecting thunderbird email set up. Maybe because of outdated version of thunderbird. Need to register & use new hosting email, then can use the thunderbird email setting. All work fine after that. Just need to improve few things : 1. Bulk action for order edit. Currently need to apply for each of order for action which easier if we can select all & bulk action with instant notification. 2. Email setting. Currently, customer will automatically receive the notification such as notification for Packing List. Some of notifications are unnecessary for customer, only for designated email recipient. Will be good if there is option if we want the customer to receive the notification or not. After all, everything is good. Thank you.

The plugin is very useful for quick order processing, where order is made online and it have to be processed at the coffee shop, or a restaurant and available for local pick-up. Once a customer make an online order, an automated email is sent to the thermal receipt printer at the physical location, such as coffee shop a restaurant . The receipt with the order details gets printed and the staff quickly processes the order and prepares it for a local pick-up.
