How to Generate Purchase Orders on WooCommerce

If your clients have customers who pay through a purchase order on your WooCommerce store, there is no option available to make it easy for them to order online.

But with the WooCommerce Purchase Order Gateway extension, you can easily add a field to your checkout screen for those who need to use purchase orders.

When a customer is at checkout, they have the option to choose Purchase Order as their payment and will have a field to insert their PO Number.

On the order details, the purchase order number is noted.
