Custom order and customer numbers in Magento: Part 2

March 24, 2012 // by Alexander Turiak

Back to Part 1.

In Magento, customers don’t use special numbering by default; however it is possible to change this. We need to add a record to the eav_entity_store table with entity_type_id = 1, increment_prefix = CU and increment_last_id = CU001000.

Custom order and customer numbers in Magento: Part 1

The field increment_id is present in various entity tables to store this number.
