WooCommerce: Get Total Spent By Customer

Enabling WooCommerce functionalities only if a “user spent more than X” is not unusual. For example, you may want to display banners, special offers, discounted prices, conditional content to customers who have purchased more than a given dollar threshold.

While coding a function that could get the total spent by a user ID, I stumbled upon a WooCommerce function that already achieves that, out of the box: wc_get_customer_total_spent( $user_id ).

You can use it as a conditional tag and run a function only when such threshold is reached. So, let’s see how to use it. Enjoy!

This cart banner will only appear if the logged in user has spent more than $99. This is awesome for running special promotions and segmenting your audience.

function bbloomer_show_banner_if_user_spent_more_than_99() {
	$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
	// if logged out, exit
	if ( 0 == $current_user->ID ) return;
	// if spent more than 99, display banner
	if ( wc_get_customer_total_spent( $current_user->ID ) > 99 ) {
		echo '<div class="woocommerce-info">Well done - you have unlocked your Valued Customer discount! Use coupon code <i><b>JRP7EWKD2</b></i> and get 5% off all products.</div>';

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. Dear Sir,

    Your code help a lot. Thanks.

    However, I have a follow up question to ask and wish you can help based on what you have done in above codes.

    Per your codes, you can get the total spend of a user and set the conditions to popup a banner. I wonder if you can extend your codes to achieve below two purposes.

    1) instead of getting the total spend of a user by his user ID, can it be done by getting the total spend of a user by his current user role?

    2) if you can get the user role of the user and use it to set conditions in codes, I wonder if it is possible for the codes to replace popup banner to change the user’s role, once the condition is met?

    Thanks for your kind support.

    1. Tai, 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!
