Yesterday afternoon we changed the way your order numbers are generated. Why? Because you’re generating a ton of orders and the old way was not keeping pace with the thousands of orders you generate every day. The new order numbers look like this 13282-11627-10811. These new order numbers are sequential, much faster to generate, and will provide for years of growth without performance issues.

If you’re interested, here’s a breakdown of how they’re generated:

  • The first two digits are the year: 13 for 2013.
  • The next three digits are the day of the year. 001 is January 1st, 282 is October 9th.
  • The next five digits are the number of seconds since midnight. 00900 is 12:15AM 15 (minutes) x 60 (seconds in a minute) = 900.
  • The last five digits are randomly generated.
