Support » Plugin: WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips » PDFs getting saved anywhere?

  • Resolved MDC2957


    Each time I generate a PDF packing slip or invoice to print and it shows it in my web browser, is the PDF getting saved on the server somewhere? Or it’s just a temporary file? I want to know in case I need to go find the folder they’re in and delete them all.

    Hi @mdc2957,

    They are stored as a temporary file. If you want to remove them you can go to your WordPress Dashboard > WooCommerce > PDF Invoices > Status and click on Remove temporary files.

    I hope this answers your question.

    With kind regards,


    It did answer my question, however, after I did it, the status message at the top said “Nothing to delete!” Doesn’t make a lot of sense because there should have been a few hundred PDF files at least as I’ve never deleted them before.. ??

    Hi! The PDF is only saved to this temporary folder if it’s sent as an attachment (because then it actually needs a file). Other than that it always generates the PDF on the fly and doesn’t store them anywhere.
    If you want to double check, you could look for the folder wp-content/uploads/wpo_wcpdf/attachments on your server. Let me know if you do find any PDF files there!

    Ah ok, so you’re saying if I don’t send them to customers, and just use the print feature, then the files aren’t getting saved. That makes sense. Thanks for the clarification!
