We’re thrilled to announce the release of our latest plugin designed to enhance the functionality of WooCommerce stores. It was actually made available in our GitHub and GitLab profiles back in October, however, after a very long wait in the review queue and a couple of review iterations by the WordPress Plugin Review Team, it is finally available in the WordPress plugin directory.
This plugin enables WooCommerce store owners to easily incorporate PDF form filling features into their online stores. Previously, you were able to set up PDF form filling with our Contact Form 7 and WPForms plugins, however, with this new addition, you are now able to configure filling order-related PDF documents using a similar feature set.
What Does the Plugin Offer?
The PDF Forms Filler for WooCommerce plugin simplifies the process of generating PDF documents with order-related information. Store owners can now set up existing PDF documents to automatically populate with required customer and order details when an order is placed or processed.
Additionally, the plugin provides the option to download images from dynamic URLs and embed them directly into their PDFs. This feature can be a game-changer for those who wish to include images within their order-related documents.
Improved Interaction with Customers
Enhancing customer interaction is always a priority for WooCommerce store owners. With this plugin, you can now send order email notifications that include PDF attachments containing order information. It’s a convenient way to quickly provide filled PDFs to your customers and avoid them having to go through the long process of logging into your store and trying to find the order-related PDF they need to download.
However, we understand the importance of providing customers with easy access to their filled documents. That’s why we’ve also incorporated the functionality for customers to download their filled PDFs directly from their order page using WooCommerce’s downloadable files feature.
A Different Approach to PDF Generation
One of the standout aspects of our plugin (as is also the case with our Contact Form 7 and WPForms plugins) is its approach to PDF file preparation. Instead of generating PDFs from scratch (such as done by competing solutions), it modifies existing PDF documents created using third-party software. This approach offers users the freedom to design their documents precisely as they need or utilize their pre-existing templates.
Organized File Management
Managing your PDF files is now easier than ever. The PDF Forms Filler for WooCommerce plugin allows you to save filled PDF files in a custom uploads subdirectory on your web server. This feature simplifies file organization and retrieval, making it a valuable tool for online store owners.
Versatile Use Cases for the New Plugin
The possibilities with the PDF Forms Filler for WooCommerce plugin are as diverse as your business needs. Here are some of the potential use cases to consider:
- Automated Event Tickets: Easily generate event tickets with customer details, event information, and QR codes. This can be invaluable for event organizers looking to streamline ticket distribution and entry management.
- Certifications and Official Documents: For businesses offering paid certifications or official documents, our plugin simplifies the creation process. Ensure that your customers receive professionally designed, filled certificates or official documents promptly.
- Warranty Documentation: If your products come with warranties, our plugin can automatically generate warranty documents based on the date of purchase. This ensures customers have access to their warranty information when they need it.
- Order Fulfillment Assistance: Use the plugin to create PDFs that assist with order fulfillment. This can include packing slips, order summaries, or any other order-related documents, enhancing your efficiency in fulfilling customer orders.
These are just a few examples of how the PDF Forms Filler for WooCommerce plugin can be a valuable asset to your e-commerce store. Its flexibility and automation capabilities make it adaptable to a wide range of scenarios, allowing you to enhance customer experience and streamline your business processes.
In conclusion, we’re excited to offer this plugin as a practical solution to enhance the functionality of WooCommerce stores. Our focus has been on providing an efficient and user-friendly tool that automates the process of creating PDF documents for order-related tasks.
