By default, order references in Prestashop are random strings, something like this:
Of course there is nothing wrong with it, but it may not be very convenient.
What if the customer calls you about the order and needs to spell it's reference?
What if the customer needs to enter the reference as bank wire's title?
What if the random string turns out to be some swearword, offensive to the customer?
It's much more user friendly if the reference is numeric.
And we have a free module that will allow you to change it!
You can choose it to be either order ID (but with more digits), or a completely random number (if you don't want to reveal to your customers how many order you have in your store).
