Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
Ok any ideas on how I can easily pull the orders to the pc and make a pdf out of it....
I really need to do this because Im planing on emailing the customers their copy of the invoice via email to cut down costs... even though printing an invoice is is like 5 cents..
You could install a PDF converter that acts as a printer driver. Check out these two softwares that will do this..
Then, you just print the webpage with one of these PDF drivers and it will save it as a PDF invoice for you to email it..

I know of 3 PDF makers on this iPage site alone. you can see a demo of the PDF DATASHEET on my site.
Click on any product and you will see the "Print this as a PDF file". and to do the invoice would be a easy task. just use the PDF data sheet and go from there..
How do I get it to work with the invoices?.
I dont care about having in on product_info... just invoices..
Figure I should add this one. not sure how good it is as I just started using it..
You could have oscommerce generate it on the fly and attach it to the confirmation e-mail if you really wanted to. This is not that hard. Check out php's pdf function from php.net...
Why does it have to be PDF? Isn't HTML good enough for an invoice, or am I missing something?.
Everybody is telling that it is easy, but nobody tells how the invoice data should be retreived and attached (as HTML, PDF or whatever) to the email..
I wonder why? Isn't it that easy after all?..
I just modified my confirmation email to look more like an invoice..
Not real difficult, just time consuming...
Suggestions no doubt are more productive than rhetorical questions no? And this forum is intended to offer solutions; lead users down the right path; help where possible. Sometimes it is dificult to do the work for someone when your time is valuable. In the case of PDF's on the fly, the answer *could be* PDF generation through PHP's built in functionality (as an option). The funcitons are well documented on php.net and can be used how I stated earlier. If it has to be PDF, and I am not going to speculate why it needs to be PDF, then this is one solution...
Maybe this can give you a starting point.......
Is it possible for osc to generate a pdf invoice once an order is confirmed?..
I seriously doubt it... there aren't many programs around that can make PDF files, I think finding one that works with osCommerce would be a mere miracle..
