Using the plugin

↑ Back to top

The Admin Order Modifier for WooCommerce plugin works primary within the Edit Order screen in your WooCommerce dashboard. The main purpose of the plugin is to allow you to optionally view and adjust the prices of order line items using tax inclusive amounts instead of the tax exclusive method which WooCommerce supports by default.

NB: Ensure you have tax line items in your order

When using the Admin Order Modifier for WooCommerce plugin for your orders, please ensure that either you have tax items enabled for your order or that the Enable for zero tax items setting is unticked.

In most cases your existing orders should already have tax line items but if you create a new order from the WooCommerce dashboard you will need to manually add a tax item.

Tax line item

When the plugin is enabled you will see additional columns in the order line item area which will display pricing inclusive of tax.

Editing line items

↑ Back to top

Click on the pencil icon to edit line items just as you normally would when editing an order line item. You will now see additional input boxes which will display the calculated inclusive tax pricing. You can then edit this pricing and up Save the line items.

Editable price input boxes

These boxes work on regular product line items, custom fees and shipping line items.

Issuing refunds

↑ Back to top

Issuing refunds works in the same way as usual refunds except once again there are editable input boxes where you can either refund a portion of the line item’s cost using a tax inclusive amount or refund a quantity based amount, for example if a client ordered 2 of an item but 1 is refunded.

Issue refunds

Product info popups

↑ Back to top

Next to each product line item is an info icon that you can click which will display a small popup of information about that specific line item so that you can quickly view additional product info without leaving the edit order screen. The popup has two tabs, Info and Description. The Info tab shows basic price and stock information and the Description tab provides a short summary of the product. Click the X in the top right hand corner to close the popup.

Apply price buttons

Next to the editable price input boxes are two buttons which will apply either the product’s current regular price or sale price to the box for the quick application of discount pricing without the need to leave the order edit screen or look up the pricing.
