    Currently, Jotform doesn't have a way of generating an invoice number, per se, although the Unique ID tool can generate unique id's for each submission. The unique id's can serve as invoice numbers but you'd have to utilize HTTP POST sending to display that unique id in a page. To make that work, you would need some custom php programming done.

    Anyway, I logged in to your account and inspected one of your forms and I found out that you are using Jotform's Paypal integration system. To my knowledge, it is possible to send an invoice to a customer using Paypal. Have you tried taking advantage of that?

    I hope this information proves to be useful to you. Let us know if there's anything else we can assist you with.
