WooCommerce: Check if Product ID is in the Order

Once a customer places an order, you might want to know if such order contains a given product ID. you can use this for tracking purposes, redirect to a custom thank you page or run your custom functions.

Either way, checking this is quite simple thanks to the “woocommerce_thankyou” hook which runs on the order received page. Enjoy!

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its 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 guide "Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?" and my video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went 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.

  1. You know, you are the best 😉

  2. Hi Rodolfo,

    If I wanted to check if a certain ordered item in an order has a certain shipping class, and I want a notice to display a notice in the order processing email should that item be present – how would I adjust this code to achieve that?


    1. Hey Ryan! In a previous blog, I showed how to loop through the cart to look for shipping classes (just do a search on Business Bloomer for “shipping class” and you’ll find it). The order is slightly different, but you can learn the basics from that article anyway 🙂

  3. not working for product id now . i think woocommerce chnages its structure

    1. Hey Ranjit thanks for your comment! I don’t think they have changed it – can you try one more time please?

  4. Your video images are pointing to your staging site, I would do a search and replace on any of those so they don’t make a staging authentication box appear.

    1. Dear Steven, thank you so much for spotting that issue! I’m having quite a few issues with the staging right now, but thankfully this has now been sorted. Can you please try again and report back? I really appreciate your help! Cheers, R

  5. Is there a way to do this with the product category instead of ID? I’ve been searching for a solution with no luck.

    1. Hello Tia, thanks so much for your comment! Answer: there is always a way 🙂

      Take a look at this guide https://businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-conditional-logic-ultimate-php-guide/ and try to see if there is a conditional rule you can apply to the products if they belong to a given category slug 🙂
