    Each order in WooCommerce already has a unique and ongoing ID.
    Can this plugin also sue that order ID as the order number?

  • So I just noticed that
    1) the invoice number is separate from the order number on purpose.
    2) the invoice number can be helpt to better organize/sequence the invoices.
    3) the invoice number can be made equal to the order number in a plugin setting, but that it isn’t recommended, mainly because of 2).

    Thanks for this great plugin!

    that’s entirely correct. Order Numbers are not sequential by default, and even if they are, not all orders (cancelled/failed) get an invoice, so if you were to use the order numbers as invoice numbers, that would leave gaps in the sequence. See: Invoice Numbers explained
