Dokan PDF Invoice

This article describes how to install and use the Dokan PDF Invoice add on. Please follow the instructions.


You will only need WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips plugin to begin with. Here is a complete list of things you will need –

1. WordPress (latest)
2. Dokan plugin
3. WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips
4. Dokan PDF Invoice


First install the WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips and then install the Dokan PDF Invoice plugin. Do not install Dokan PDF Invoice at first. Doing so will cause it to malfunction.


The invoice comes in PDF format (.pdf) and is readable by any pdf viewer. The file downloads to your default or predefined download folder.


Dokan PDF Invoice has a threefold usability. Admin, Seller and Customers have their own menu of generating invoices through this add-on.

Note: This is something that gets many people confused. When you are generating a invoice of an order with sub-order, you will only get the name of the Market and names of the Vendors/Seller only. However, if you generate individual invoices for the sub-orders separately, you will get full address and information of the Vendor.

One more thing

You need to head over to wp-admin > woocommerce > pdf invoices > template and add your market logo and information there for a proper output of your invoices.

Usage – Admin

Go to your Dashboard > WooCommerce > Orders and click the red button named “Dokan PDF Invoice” in the Actions panel of your desired order to generate and download a PDF file.

If you want individual invoices for suborders then click on Show Sub-orders and then you can generate the invoices like the previous step. Please check the following screenshot and it should be clear.

The Admin will get an invoice that looks like this:

Usage – Vendor

Vendors can also generate their invoices. Vendor has to go to Seller Dashboard > Orders press the Dokan PDF Invoice button which appears at the right of each order. The admin and seller’s invoice are absolutely the same.


Usage – Customer

Customers can also get their invoices for the orders they make. Customer has to go to My Orders and click Download Invoice (PDF).

The customer invoice is something like this:

Order types and Invoices

If you are creating a single invoice from an order which has suborders you will get an invoice with the admin / market address with only the sellers shop name. Something like this –

But you can generate separate invoices for the sellers of the suborder and it will have the full address and information of the seller/shop.

That is all there is about Dokan PDF Invoice, Thank you.
