How to start Order ID at 2500 instead of default 1
« on: April 20, 2016, 06:25:50 PM »
How do I get the Order ID (in Admin) to start at 2500 vs the default 1?  We request this so as to not duplicate order numbers from another ecommerce site we were using (but switched to AbanteCart), and it's confusing with accounting when the orders start back at 1.

I went into MySQL per another post but this did not change the Order ID. 

Here's my process:  Go to cPanel, then MySQL, then select "abku_orders", then select "Operations", then under "Table Options" I changed the AUTO_INCREMENT to 2500 (it was currently at #30 which was the latest order number).   I clicked "Go" to activate it in MySQL.  However, all orders coming in are still listing as #31, #32, etc... instead of #2500, #2501, etc...

I've attached 2 screenshots.  Please help.  Thank you.

Hello.

You can do this in AbanteCart Admin > System > Settings > Checkout > Order Start No
