Hi

What is the "Order" colum under ORDERS > All orders. It has a 4 diggit number like #3344. Is that the number for the amount of purchase on our site or is that the orders invoice number? Because the orders also has at 10 diggit number where you open the orders history for example "Jansen placed this order on Online Store (checkout #7288157675264)

Which i think is the orders true invoice number.

Hey Henrik,

This is the order number that your customer will see. I'm pretty sure that for any store, they'll start at 1001 and go up sequentially from there.

Hey, Henrik!

My name is Ava, I’m one of Shopify’s Gurus and I’m here to help :)

Those would be two separate numbers associated with the order. So the first number shown here - 

is the Order ID. This number identifies a purchase or order placed by a customer. This keeps track of the number of orders in your store, for example, order #1001 would be your first order, #1002 your second, etc. You can use this number to search for orders or keep track for your reporting.

You can edit your order ID by following this guide here.

The second number shown here in the order timeline - 

is the Order Number. An Order Number is a field used to uniquely identify your transaction. This number cannot be edited.

Let me know if this answers your question!
