WooCommerce PDF Invoices with the plugin (free or premium)
Some of the plugin’s features are only available in the paid PRO version. The most important differences between free and PRO are mentioned below.
Generate and send PDF invoices automatically
Firstly, using the free version, you won’t be able to generate documents automatically. You will have to always click the Issue Invoice button in your WooCommerce order screen:
After that, you can download the PDF file. You would have to send it to your client manually, each time clicking the button:
With the Premium version of the plugin, you can choose order status for the automatic generation of WooCommerce PDF invoices.
The invoice is also automatically sent to the client using the WordPress e-mail service. In conclusion, as you see from the free vs Premium comparison, the PRO version is better for automation. Read more on automatic invoicing in your WooCommerce store.
