Displaying VAT ID and/or International ID on Invoices and Customer Emails

New in ProductCart v3.5 VAT enabled stores can capture a customer VAT ID and/or International ID.

We understand that some stores will need these details displayed on Invoices but many stores have privacy requirements, so the VAT ID and International ID are not displayed on Invoices or Emails by default. The ability to show those Fields on the Invoice is set through a “flag” in the file “ordInvoice.asp” in your 'admin' folder. If you were to look at the file in Notepad or another editor, you'll see the following sections of code:

'///////////////////////////////
'// SHOW VAT ID 
'// Change "0" to "-1" to show
'///////////////////////////////
pcv_strShowVatId=0 ' -1
'///////////////////////////////


'///////////////////////////////
'// SHOW INTL. ID 
'// Change "0" to "-1" to show
'///////////////////////////////
pcv_strShowSSN=0 ' -1
'///////////////////////////////

To show the corresponding variable on the Invoice, change the variable to “-1” and the relevant details will be displayed on the invoice. Note: In order for the information to be shown on the Invoice, you will also need to have the following selections enabled on your VAT Settings page:

  • Display VAT ID?
  • Display National Indentification Number?

… and of course the Customer must have entered the information during the registration and checkout process.
