How To Get WooCommerce Order Details – Beginners Guide


The World's No.1 WooCommerce Plugin

Get Order Info From The WooCommerce Order Object

Once you have the WooCommerce $order object, you can easily access any data or information contained within any given WooCommerce order.

For this tutorial, you will be adding your PHP to the functions.php file. 

If you are not sure how to access functions.php you should read our article on how to edit functions.php.

How To Get The WooCommerce Order Object

If you already have the $order_id

First thing’s first, let’s make sure you have access to the order object.

If you already have the $order_id, you can simply perform the following code to get the order object:

					$order = wc_get_order( $order_id );

If you don’t have the $order_id

If you don’t have the $order_id or object, you can access these by using the following code:

					global $woocommerce, $post;

$order = new WC_Order($post->ID);

Accessing WooCommerce Order Details

Now that we have the $order object we can push on.

There are simple methods for accessing any order information, as outlined below.

Make sure you assign your order data to a variable.
