Random Order ID
|Random Order ID v6
||v1.5.3.x, v1.5.4.x, v1.5.5.x
This mod generates and uses a random Order Number and Invoice number, that is related to the Order ID, so that clients or competition will never know exactly how many orders your store has processed!
When you search in admin, you can search by order ID or by order No, which is the random generated number and it will show the same results.
On the front-end, the user only sees the new generated number for Order and Invoice, and not the real order ID or real Invoice ID.
The real sequential Invoice ID is kept for accountant reasons. The invoice random number displayed to customer is a string that works like this: invoice prefix + order random no + generated sequential number, for example: on order 80728 invoice is INV-2012-00807281
This module is under development.
1) Please back-up your database!
2) Please run the SQL queries located at the beginning of the XML file, between comments.
You have to replace the table prefix 'oc_' with your own database prefix.
3) After that you can install the mod, as the columns have to already exist in the database.
