VirtueMart Invoices is a Joomla + VirtueMart component. It can generate PDF invoices and despatch notes based on VirtueMart purchases (orders). It may operate either in manual mode when operated by e-store administrator on in fully automated mode. Created PDF invoices can be then automatically sent to shoppers' emails or be downloaded at order list in website customer area.

Easily generates invoices, delivery notes and sends them out automatically. Even better, the lay-out is easily customizable. Also inputting manual orders, and making new customer accounts doing so is a great addition since both aren't possible in the Virtuemart core.
I use it for a shop with highly configurable products. Sometimes a product cannot be produced as ordered. So I may adjust the order and send a new invoice with VMinvoice.
It will create invoices and delivery notices automatically and sends it on multiple defined order status.
But there is one point i really dislike: You cannot choose different order status for invoices and delivery notices.
It doesnt send an invoice at all automatically and when you send one manually it doesnt correctly add the .pdf extension so the invoice cannot be simply opened.
Oh and dont bother trying to email the company after paying for it because he doesnt answer.
Latest in forum is just that there is an update coming - but as yet nothing and i am £25 down.
Not happy and this is the first bad review i have ever written amongst lots of great ones.
The current version is known to be fully compatible with VM2. Maybe at time you wrote this review, there were problems, as the several first version of VM 2.x were quite buggy and also they have changed the DB structure several times, which caused updating VM Invoice as well.
Not too bad to install although I didn't realise I needed to install Virtuemart first. I didn't realise this as I was only looking for a stand alone invoice system (should have been made clearer).
I paid for the software plus one hour of support so I could get the customisation done on the delivery note. However, when I requested the customisation I was sent an update to the software and was told I could do the changes myself. I have not yet been offered a refund on my purchase of 'support' and I am still waiting on a reply from the support team. I have also queried a couple of things that are hapening on the update too which shouldn't be.
Because the component only works with Virtuemart you have to go between both VM and VMInvoices to set any params (annoying). Also, I am finding it difficult to get answers to my questions.
A good component with lousy support. I look forward to see an improvement there.
Invoices are sent automatically, and delivery notes are very usefull, because they must be sent with the order...
I am a freelancer, and the manual order creation module helps me to invoice my clients, and the invoices are stored on a "secret" personal Joomla installation.
The multiple vendor option really helps if you have multiple freelance jobs..
Jan really works hard on this component and now is a really professional invoice system. I'll say the best, and I have tried a few before this one. The support on the forum although is not super fast is more than decent and you will always get an answer. Lately our little requests have been implemented in a matter of days and the layout of the Invoice is really good.
I am a very happy customer. I cannot thank enough. The most important thing for me is; they took their time to reply my emails.
Excellent support, excellent communication and needless to say, excellent component.
Bottom line: it is worth every penny.
