Set up Same Order Invoice Number in the Magento backend
Go to System > Configuration > Sales > Order Numbers to configure your chosen settings in Magento.
Choose a prefix for invoices (e.g. INV-), shipment (e.g. SHIP-) and credit memo (e.g. CREDIT-) numbers.
If you are using an older version of this extension, you'll also see an option under System > Configuration > Sales > Order Numbers > Prevent Duplicates. Set this to “Yes”.
This step is not needed for newer releases of this extension - this will happen automatically.
How to use Same Order Invoice Number
Once installed, all new invoices, shipments and credit memos will be automatically assigned the same number as the related order. For example, for order #1000, the associated invoice would be #1000, the shipment #1000, and the credit memo also #1000.
If there are multiple invoices, shipments and/or credit memos associated with the same order, duplicate separation will happen automatically. For example, the first invoice would be #1000, the second #1000-1, the third #1000-2, and so on.
