Settings - Shop - Documents

In the document settings you configure the templates for the documents generated by Shopware such as invoice and delivery note. You have the possibility to integrate your company logo and bank details.
You open the module via Settings > Shop > Documents. First you will get an overview of existing templates. In the standard Shopware already provides global templates for delivery note, invoice, credit note and storno bill. To edit these, you can open the context menu via the "..." button and open the template configuration via Edit.
In the context menu you also have the possibility to delete a template.

Please note that the default global templates delivered with the system serve as fallback and cannot be deleted.

In addition, you can create your own templates that you assign to individual or multiple sales channels and then overwrite the global template. The mask for the new creation can be opened by clicking the button Add document.

The basic setting options for the 4 different document types do not differ.

Configuration options

There are no fundamental differences between creating a new template and editing an existing one. Please note that the assignment cannot be adjusted for the global templates delivered with the system, this is only possible for your own templates.

In the following example, the areas that you can customize in this configuration are marked.


In the settings you define, for example, the structure of the file name of the PDF files to be generated, determine the general styling of the document and define which order information is to be output.

  • Name: The name of the template that is displayed in the template overview, for example.
  • Company logo: This module allows you to print your company logo on the document. The logo is included in the standard above.
