    $options['default_font_size'] = 0;
    $options['default_font'] = 'opensans';
    $options['margin_left'] = 14;
    $options['margin_right'] = 14;
    $options['margin_top'] = 14;
    $options['margin_bottom'] = 0;

    return $options;
add_filter( 'bewpi_mpdf_options', 'custom_bewpi_mpdf_options' );

How to change the more advanced PDF options?

To fully customize the PDF, use below code. This filter gives you full control over the mPDF library. Check the mPDF manual for more info.

function bewpi_mpdf( $mpdf, $document ) {
    // change the direction of the invoice to RTL
    $mpdf->SetDirectionality( 'rtl' );

How to display invoice download button on specific template files?

echo do_shortcode( '[bewpi-download-invoice title="Download (PDF) Invoice {formatted_invoice_number}" order_id="' . $order->get_id() . '"]' );

 * @since 2.9.8
 * @return array.
function add_invoice_information_meta( $info, $invoice ) {
    $payment_gateway = wc_get_payment_gateway_by_order( $invoice->order );

    // Add PO Number from 'WooCommerce Purchase Order Gateway' plugin.
    if ( $payment_gateway && 'woocommerce_gateway_purchase_order' === $payment_gateway->get_method_title() ) {
        $po_number = WPI()->get_meta( $invoice->order, '_po_number' );
        if ( $po_number ) {
            $info['po_number'] = array(
                'title' => __( 'Purchase Order Number:', 'woocommerce-pdf-invoices' ),

    if ( $vat_number ) {
        $info['vat_number'] = array(
            'title' => __( 'VAT Number:', 'woocommerce-pdf-invoices' ),

 * @param BEWPI_Abstract_Invoice $invoice      invoice object.
 * @return string needs to be in mysql format.
function change_invoice_date_to_order_date( $invoice_date, $invoice ) {
    // get_date_paid() or get_date_created().
    $date_completed = $invoice->order->get_date_completed();
    if ( null !== $date_completed ) {
        return $date_completed->date( 'Y-m-d H:i:s' );

    return $invoice_date;
add_filter( 'wpi_invoice_date', 'change_invoice_date_to_order_date', 10, 2 );

How to update the PDF invoice when it already has been sent to the customer?

Since version 2.9.4 the plugin removed the ability to update the PDF invoice when it already has been sent to the customer. If in what manner you still want to update the invoice, you can do so by resetting a custom field.

  1. Go to Edit Order page.
  2. Change custom field ‘bewpi_pdf_invoice_sent’ value within custom field widget to 0.
  3. Refresh page and Update button will appear.

The plugin (premium and free) does not work as intended. Support is NON EXISTENT! We feel a bit ripped-off as we purchased the premium version.
Октябрь 27, 2022-ж.
I believe this plugin, as well as the premium version, is no longer supported by the developer. We’ve contacted the developer 2 weeks ago regarding an issue with meta data showing HTML tags as plain text on invoices. After a second follow-up via email on our end we still haven’t gotten a response regarding this issue. The plugin itself is great but the lack of premium support makes us lose confidence and pushes us to look for another solution.

Paid for the premium plugin but receive zero support. The invoices have started to get generated blank. Tried to get through to support via the support forum and official website but no response as of today. It has been a month or so at this stage.
Июнь 8, 2022-ж.
Great plug in i use for several years now. Only minus one star because, as a small online business, i’ve never understood why premium plugins are so expensive. I’d be happy to pay 10$/year for 1 site personal use on several plugins, but multiply 50-60$ by 10-20 plugins is just unaffordable… So bad

It seems the maker has no interest in supporting this plugin anymore. Most support topics here stay unanswered. I have even bought the premium version for a particular extra feature and hope on decent support. Very, very slow and incomplete support and in the end just no response anymore at all. However, he did remove the (buggy) feature I tried to get working from his promo website, instead of helping me out. I asked for a refund more than once, but never got a reply. I wasted money, several weeks time and effort on this plugin.
