Depending on how you found this page, the term Order Reference could mean one of two things.

Order Reference During Checkout

If you are being asked for an order reference number during the checkout process, the reference number for the benefit of you and your company's accounting team. This value appears on the invoice and is included in all admin reports, so use a value that will help you (or someone else) identify this order in the future. Often this number is a Purchase Order, or Cost Center number. It could be used to reference a specific event such as "2017 Member Conference" or even to a specific person "CEO Holiday Gift for client x" — While this field is required at checkout, we are not looking for a specific value.

Post Order Placement Order Reference

Order numbers are 10 or 11 digit numbers, generally with a lot of zeros in them, and follow the format 2500000123. Order numbers are displayed in your confirmation email after placing your order.
