In this article I will explain you how to get started using Your InvoicePlane & WooCommerce Integration.
First we’ll see how to configure InvoicePlane and after how to configure your WordPress website.
- Append the follow line of code to the last line of your InvoicePlane installation inside the file “/application/config/config.php”:
$config['csrf_exclude_uris'] = array('webservice');
- Download the webservice module for InvoicePlane from here.
- Extract the downloaded ZIP file (webservice.zip) and copy the folder “webservice” to your InvoicePlane inside the folder “/application/modules”
After InvoicePlane configuration is finished you can proceed to configure WordPress:
- In your WordPress website install the free version of the plugin from here.
- If you have also the Pro version, download it from your My Account Area and install it in your WordPress website.
- From your administration dashboard click on “YourPlugins > InvoicePlane Settings”:
- URL: This is your InvoicePlane URL (Example: htts://yourinvoiceplane.ext). Please don’t use ending slashes (/) after the URL.
- Username: Your InvoicePlane username
- Password: Your InvoicePlane password
Click on Save and if everything is ok you will see a confirmation message and new options are shown.
Here are the new available options:
- Payment Method Mapping: You can map the WooCommerce payment methods with your InvoicePlane payment methods.

When a new order is sent to InvoicePlane, it is checked if the customer exists or not. The fields used for the match are: First Name, Last Name, Address 1, Address 2, City, State, ZIP code, Country.
If no records have been found with this info, a new customer will be created.
