Purchase Order Number support for Shopify B2B orders

Purchase Order Number support for Shopify B2B orders

Great news for our Shopify Plus users: We've just introduced a new feature in Order Printer Pro that allows you to include Purchase Order Numbers on all your invoices and other print documents for B2B sales.

What is Shopify B2B?

B2B on Shopify is a suite of features that allow you to sell business-to-business (B2B) through the online store, without requiring the use of third-party apps or workarounds. You can set customer-specific catalogs, payment terms, and currencies and connect multiple customers and locations in a single company profile. You and your customers can add a purchase order (PO) number to B2B orders and draft orders.

Order Printer Pro - Purchase Order Numbers

This new feature caters especially to the needs of businesses that handle B2B transactions, ensuring that the Purchase Order Numbers are prominently displayed and easily trackable.
