    I am thinking of using web invoice for a different purpose, can you please tell me if it would work this way?

    I will be setting up a membership site in WordPress using a membership and affiliate plug ins that are commercially available.

    As part of the membership a member will be able to buy virtual share certificates. Up to now I have found no way to generate and manage these certificates. I am hoping web invoice can help.

    I want to call the “invoice” that web invoice generates a “certificate” and use web invoice to send it out as it currently sends out an invoice.Then the member can print out the pdf as their copy of the certificate.

    So what I want to know is this.

    1) Can I edit out the word Invoice and replace with “Certificate” on the invoice and in the email?

    2) When I input the invoice can I mark it as paid when its created, because they should have already been paid before I send them out.

    3) If its sent out after its been paid will it be able to hide the paypal log etc

    4) The member plug in uses the user database of WP, so will the users already be in the user list for web invoice ready for selection?

    5) Will a user be able to view all the previous invoices (certificates)?

    6) Will web invoice generate invoice numbers in sequence, these would then become the certificate numbers.

    If you could let me know if you think this should work.

    Any suggestions from anyone would be welcome.



    Since no one replied, I’ll try to answer your questions. I know some users who use Web Invoice in your setup, but I haven’t personally used it in your scenario.

    1. yes, but every time you upgrade you will have to do this or see http://mohanjith.net/blog/2009/08/how-to-customize-a-wordpress-plugin-and-upgrade.html

    2. Yes, you can mark an invoice as paid anytime after it’s created. There is no need to even send out the invoice before marking as paid.

    3. If an invoice is marked as paid, payment form is hidden.

    4. Yes, web invoice uses the WP user table (database as you call it)

    5. If they log into their account and go to ‘Users’ -> ‘Invoices’

    6. Nope, invoice numbers are random, but you can change it to anything you wish (as long as they don’t conflict)
