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 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. Thank you very much, that helped me a lot! (again)

  2. Hello,

    This works wonderful. However, this is not working for the custom Order Status which I have implemented another post of yours.


    Can you help on this.
