WooCommerce Subscriptions: Get Subscribers By Product

If you use the official WooCommerce Subscription plugin, one day or another you will need to know what is the list of subscribers for a given subscription product. In my own specific case, for example, I wanted to know who are the “active” subscribers for my private Bloomer Armada membership, so that I can display some conditional content.

There is a neat WooCommerce Subscription function called wcs_get_subscriptions_for_product(), which does exactly that: it returns an array of subscription IDs given a chosen subscription product ID. Once you have the array, you can then loop through each subscription ID in order to get whatever you need – you’ll see below a few examples of the most common data. Enjoy!

In this screenshot, you can see how I was able to get the list of active subscribers under each subscription product on my development website. Of course, you can use the list somewhere else or for whatever else functionality.

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.

If you think this code saved you time & money, feel free to join 17,000+ WooCommerce Weekly subscribers for blog post updates and 250+ Business Bloomer supporters for 365 days of WooCommerce benefits. Thank you in advance!
