Orders no longer generate auto invoices.

Hi,

 

I have been using Magento for my online store for more than 4 years without any problems. My current version is 1.9.2.2 and in the past, my orders would automatically generate an invoice after payment.

 

I have now discovered that that is no longer the case. I can confirm that nothing has been edited and no settings have been changed but I now have to covert each order to an invoice. How do I get that functionality back?

Re: Orders no longer generate auto invoices.

Hello @izette_groenewald1 ,

 

We don't know about your implemented functionality, For generate invoice, Please create a small module for it. I hope that you have experienced to create a module in Magento 1

 

Step1: Insert below event to your config.xml

<events>
        <sales_order_place_after>
            <observers>
                <yourmodule_autoinvoice>
                    <class>yourmodule_autoinvoice/observer</class>
                    <method>autoInvoice</method>
                </yourmodule_autoinvoice>
            </observers>
        </sales_order_place_after>
</events>

then in observer event function use the logic to generate invoice and update order status.

class Yourmodule_Autoinvoice_Model_Observer
    {
        public function autoInvoice($observer) 
        {
                // loading placed order using observer.

                $order = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder();
                $orders = Mage::getModel('sales/order_invoice')->getCollection()->addAttributeToFilter('order_id', array('eq'=>$order->getId()));
                $orders->getSelect()->limit(1);

                if ((int)$orders->count() !== 0) {
                    return $this;
                }

                try {
                        // checking the order can invoice or not.

                        if(!$order->canInvoice()) {
                            $order->addStatusHistoryComment('AutoInvoice: Order cannot be invoiced.', false);
                            $order->save();
                        } else {

                            $invoice = Mage::getModel('sales/service_order', $order)->prepareInvoice();

                            // below capture method depends on your payment method.
                            // here I used CAPTURE_OFFLINE method.

                            $invoice->setRequestedCaptureCase(Mage_Sales_Model_Order_Invoice::CAPTURE_OFFLINE);
                            $invoice->register();

                            $transactionSave = Mage::getModel('core/resource_transaction')
                                               ->addObject($invoice)
                                               ->addObject($invoice->getOrder());
                            $transactionSave->save();

                            // Now its setting the status to processing. 
                            // for virtual products this might not required. 
                            // please test only with invoice generate code.

                            $invoice->getOrder()->setIsInProcess(true);
                            $order->addStatusHistoryComment(Mage::helper('yourmodule')->__('Auto Invoice generated.'), 
                                                                Mage_Sales_Model_Order::STATE_PROCESSING)->setIsCustomerNotified(true);
                            $invoice->sendEmail(true, '');
                            $order->save(); 
                        }

                    } catch (Exception $e) {
                        $order->addStatusHistoryComment('AutoInvoice: Exception occurred during autoInvoice action. Exception message: '.$e->getMessage(), false);
                        $order->save();
                    }
            return $this;
        }
    }
