WooCommerce: Get Current User Orders By Status

This is a neat custom function that you can use in your WooCommerce customization. It can be helpful to know the list of orders placed by the current user ID, for example, if they are in their “My Account” page and you have a custom tab where you want to show e.g. only failed orders. Sooner or later this is something you’ll need. Enjoy!

In this case, I’ve retrieved the list of “Completed Shipment” orders (a custom order status) for the current user ID and displayed them in a table in a custom My Account tab.

PHP Snippet: Get List of Orders By Status For Logged In User

Usage: feel free to use the function bbloomer_get_current_user_orders( ‘completed’ ) in your own code. You can rename it to whatever you want, as long as you define the function before using it. You can use whatever order status, including custom order statuses.

Where to add custom code?

You should place custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101
