non-sequential invoice numbers





We are looking at WHMCS but right now we have a show-stopper: we can't figure out how to randomize the invoice numbers.


Sequential invoice numbers make it very easy for our customers and competitors to estimate our revenues, which we don't want to happen.


Something like YEAR{RAND} or YEARMONDAY{RAND} would work.


Is there a way to do this?

No one will be able to get an accurate picture of your revenues by looking at the invoice numbers. Since day 1, packages may have changed in pricing, one client might pay $1000/year in invoice ID 50 whereas invoice ID 51 a client is paying you $3 per month. So just having the invoice IDs themselves, a client won't be able to tell the revenue you're making. Simply one can't make an educated guess.


If you really want this, you can set the incremental value in the admin area: Setup -> General Settings -> Invoices -> Invoice # Incrementation
