How does Billomat WooCommerce work?

As soon as you have successfully linked Billomat and WooCommerce, the plugin starts its work and automates the invoicing analogous to the incoming orders

  1. Order in the online shop: 
    The plugin creates a new customer based on the orderer data. The data is synchronized on both sides. For example, if you make changes to the customer data in your Billomat account, the orderer data in WooCommerce will be adjusted accordingly. 
  2. Invoicing:
    Billomat automatically creates a PDF invoice based on the incoming order in your online shop. You can use the plugin setting to define exactly when the billing should take place for each payment method. You can call up the invoice both in your WooCommerce customer data and in your invoice overview in Billomat. 
  3. E-mail to customer:
    The invoice is (depending on the configuration) sent directly to the customer, either as an attachment to your confirmation e-mail or as a separate e-mail from your Billomat account.  
  4. Dispatch of the order:
    In addition, the plugin also creates a delivery note for you, which you can enclose with the goods. You can call up the delivery note in a WooCommerce customer data.
