How to add text to custom the PrestaShop invoice template
You always want to add text to the invoice file in PrestaShop PDF for editing the PrestaShop invoice template and personalizing your documents. But you only have a default template in PrestaShop that only lets you use the company name and the default logo from the backoffice.
This type of document for your PrestaShop store is not only a tool for getting paid and generating receipts. You could use it to reinforce your brand and for communicating with customers.
But there is a way to personalize your documents by adding text on their content as well as the header and the footer. This article will show you how easy it is!
Why do people want to add text to custom invoice templates?
You might want to include text from your customer — such as the notes of the order. Adding text is a good way for branding your PrestaShop PDF Invoice Templates, showing more critical information for compliance with the law of your country.
EU Law requires you to show fees, such as the shipping cost, discount and tax in this document. So if you're missing this information in your store's invoices, you will face a serious problem.
There are 2 types of text you might want to use:
- The static text, i.e. refund policy, the support address...
- Or use the shortcodes for adding the dynamic value/text (invoice ID, product ID....)
