In Magento, this is not standard funtionality a quick Google for order print returned this extension:


This is free and you can test order print by going to the order grid, selecting the order checkbox and selecting print orders from actions on this url: http://demo.easypdfinvoice.com/index.php/admin/sales_order/index/key/d427e9a5a6fa85d9f28ab9df77162372/.

By the way I do not work at this company so my intention is not to advertise.


It seems this extension does it also:


  • Thanks for mentioning us. We offer this extension for free magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/… - it allows you to print an order confirmation pdf. Pdf Customiser will additionally allow you to print a packing slip before creating a shipment. Jun 24, 2013 at 20:15
  • Hey Fooman, I had just recently emailed you actually on my search for print order before invoice extension. The issue after being able to print is marking it as printed so another person does not print it again creating duplicates. Do you do custom development by a chance? Jun 24, 2013 at 20:53
  • tbh thats not hard, create new order attribute printed and set it when you use that action, just add that attribute to the orders grid and you have your marker Jun 24, 2013 at 21:16
  • @Dylan plz mark this as an answer for future references since you used the Fooman extension Jun 25, 2013 at 18:55

Fooman Email Attachments allows us to do this. It's a great extension, created by a great author and it's free! http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/fooman-email-attachments.html


I have spent hours searching the internet for a solution to this problem and finally created my own module.

'Print Packingslips (pre shipped)'.

It prints your packingslips/pick lists with any order status. Works perfectly and is the cheapest module I can find. http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/print-packing-slips-pre-shipped.html
