WooCommerce: Add Payment Method to Order Emails

If you wish to print the payment gateway name on order emails (in its own paragraph below the order items table), here’s a handy snippet for you.

All you need to use is the “woocommerce_email_after_order_table” hook to pick the correct position, and then the “get_payment_method_title” WooCommerce function to return the payment gateway name. Enjoy!

PHP Snippet: Show Payment Gateway Name @ WooCommerce Order Emails

add_action( 'woocommerce_email_after_order_table', 'bbloomer_display_payment_type_name_emails', 15 );
 
function bbloomer_display_payment_type_name_emails( $order ) {
   echo '<h2>Payment Type:</h2><p> ' . $order->get_payment_method_title() . '</p>';
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.

  1. I would like it to show the last4 of the card number and brand “visa” etc not just payment ‘type’
    Is there anyway you could show me a snippet for that?

    1. Hey Leah, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  2. I believe this should be simple enough but I haven’t a clue. All I want to do is place the total dollar amount of an order into the “Additonal Content” field that is available in the standard woo emails….

    Reference: {order_number} this works fine and the email has the number xxxxx or whatever
    Amount: {order_total} this never works and the email has {order_total} instead of $50.00 or whatever

    Please help!

    1. Maybe a bug? Disable all plugins except Woo and try again

  3. Hallo
    I tried your “Add Payment Method to Order Emails” snippet. It shows the text “Payment Type” but not paypal or Credit card…,
    Any idea what it can be.
    Thanks a lot.

    Dear
    Sascha

    1. Hello Sascha, thanks for your comment! I just tested this again with Storefront theme and it works perfectly. Maybe your theme (or another plugin) is messing/conflicting with my snippet.

      To troubleshoot, disable all plugins but WooCommerce and also switch temporarily to “Twentytwenty” theme (load the snippet there in functions.php) as explained here: https://www.businessbloomer.com/lesson/trwm4l01/

      Once you do that, does it work? If yes, you have a problem with your current theme or one of the plugins.

      Hope this helps!

  4. Hi,
    i have a woocommerce email sales report add on, but it doesnt show the payment types.
    For example i want to see how much money was accumulated through CASH and CREDIT CARD.
    May I know how to incorporate this in the daily email report?

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Abdul, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  5. I’m using this code snippet but getting “payment_method_title was called incorrectly. Order properties should not be accessed directly.” errors in the php log. This seems to be related to recent changes in WooCommerce. Is there now a new way to call payment_method_title?

    I should add the code still works, just generates a warning.

    1. Spot on, snippet revised and updated. Thank you!

  6. Hi Rodolfo, we would be happy to pay for your email function that would include the STRIPE “brand” and “last4” of the credit card used.

    1. Hello Laz, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible – if you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot!

  7. Hi,

    this solution is putting payment info to all E-mails, is there solution for putting it on only to mails for orders sent from admin?

    1. Hi Filip, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  8. Hi there,
    thanks for your snippet. How d I have to modify it, if I want to add more payment infos, like account number.

    Thanks in advance!

    Cheers, Riccardo

    1. Riccardo, thanks so much for your comment! Once again, yes, this is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R
