WooCommerce: Send Checkout User Info to Email Recipient

When my blog readers become official Business Bloomer supporters, a few custom fields are conditionally displayed on the WooCommerce checkout (thanks to this snippet or this other snippet).

For example I show a custom user Twitter field. Thanks to the snippets, this is automatically saved into the WordPress User Profile page. But as I love to thank each Business Bloomer supporter on Twitter, I wanted to generate an additional email reminder (to myself, or to an assistant’s email address for example) with the Twitter username I should be thanking. You might need something like this if you need to send a new customer email address to a coworker. Or maybe a new address to a dropshipper…

So, how do you send a custom email with some user information, after such user completes the checkout and a new WooCommerce order is created?

add_action( 'woocommerce_checkout_update_user_meta', 'bbloomer_checkout_field_update_user_meta' );
 
function bbloomer_checkout_field_update_user_meta( $user_id ) { 
	
if ( $user_id && $_POST['twitter'] ) {
	
	// if custom input field name = "twitter" >> then use $_POST['twitter']
	bbloomer_email_with_twitter_username( $_POST['twitter'] );
	
}
	
}

function bbloomer_email_with_twitter_username( $username ) {

		$to = '[email protected]';
    	$subject = 'Reminder: New Business Bloomer Fan to Thank on Twitter';
    	$message = 'Hey Rodolfo, please remember to send a Tweet to: ' . $username;
    
		wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message );
	
}

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.
