WooCommerce: Add New Row @ Order Totals (Email & Thank-you Page)

While working for a freelance client, I did some research on the code that generates the “Order Totals” table. This shows on the Thank-you Page and also on the Email Receipt. So, what if we wanted to add a table row to the foot of such table?

Add a new row to the WooCommerce Order Totals table

PHP Snippet: Add Row to Order Totals Table – WooCommerce

add_filter( 'woocommerce_get_order_item_totals', 'bbloomer_add_recurring_row_email', 10, 2 );

function bbloomer_add_recurring_row_email( $total_rows, $myorder_obj ) {

$total_rows['recurr_not'] = array(
	'label' => __( 'Rec:', 'woocommerce' ),
	'value'	=> 'blabla'

return $total_rows;

Where to add this code?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such delicate files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free WooCommerce Customization video tutorial.

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.

  1. Thank you, it is working but how can add more than 1 row? Thank you!

    1. Alex – thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R

  2. Hi there,
    how do I have to edit this Snippet if I wish to add a new row in:

    Cart & Checkout & EMail ?

    How to insert a subtotal variable (f.ex. total value of products)

    1. Hey Riccardo, thanks for your comment! This should already work in the Emails. Adding new rows to Cart/Checkout is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R
