  • Attach email as PDF

    Is there some easy path to generating a pdf of say the customer email, and attaching that? Or perhaps generating a link that they could click on to download their email invoice/order as a pdf? We have the Miva quote system and the people requesting quotes for several companies then have to upload those quotes as pdf's to another system. Doesn't impact us directly but it's an annoyance for them so if there is a simple way to do this I'd love to know

  • Hi,

    You would need to hook into one of the several pdf services out there or have a php pdf library installed on your server if it's not already there and hook into that. I have a personal project that requires pdfs to be created and I found a service that works for me. I believe it's free up to a certain limit, then the price per pdf is super small, like, less than a penny.

    I would approach your situation by creating a module that takes the email and uses one of the PDF services out there to create a pdf (takes seconds) and then attach the pdf to the email. It's not a difficult module to make, probably take a few hours at the most.

      Hey Scot,

      This just came up with a store owner that would like the Merchant Confirmation emails to have the Invoice be sent as an attachment to the email.
