Configure Delivery Slip Options
On the same page below there are some delivery slip options that you can configure to affect all the delivery slips. To do so, navigate to Orders -> Delivery Slips in the PrestaShop admin panel and on the page go to the section Delivery slip options.
The options are as follows:
- Delivery prefix – Using this field you can change the prefix used for the delivery slips. Each delivery slips consist of prefix and delivery slip number. For example, the default prefix for delivery slips is #DE so the delivery slips will be like #DE000001, #DE000002 and so on. If you will change the delivery prefix then not only it will affect all new delivery slip that will be created but it will also affect all existing delivery slips.
- Delivery Number – Each delivery slips consist of a prefix and a number like 000001, 000002 etc. This field defines the delivery slip number of the next delivery slip issued to an order. By default it is set to 0, which means use default delivery number i.e. if the current issued delivery number is 000014, then next invoice number will be 000025. But if you want to change this number, you can do it by entering a value in this field. For example, if you enter 017 in the field, then the next delivery slip number will be 000017and then 000018 and so on.
