By default, your first order ID is given the format #1001. Orders after that are incremented by 1 for each new order.

You cannot change the number that your orders begin at (1001), but to customize the format of your order IDs you can:

  • edit the prefix (#)
  • add a suffix.

Edit the order ID format Prefix

  1. In the Standards and formats section, edit the Prefix text field:
    Standards formats order

    You can delete the # or replace it with any characters A-Z, 0-9, or symbols. You can replace it with multiple characters if desired.

  2. Click Save.

Add an order ID format Suffix

  1. In the Standards and formats section, edit the Prefix text field:
    Standards formats order 2

    Enter the desired combination of characters: A-Z, 0-9, or symbols.

  2. Click Save.
