WooCommerce: Add Payment Method to Order Emails

If you wish to print the payment gateway name on order emails (in its own paragraph below the order items table), here’s a handy snippet for you.

All you need to use is the “woocommerce_email_after_order_table” hook to pick the correct position, and then the “get_payment_method_title” WooCommerce function to return the payment gateway name. Enjoy!

add_action( 'woocommerce_email_after_order_table', 'bbloomer_display_payment_type_name_emails', 15 );
function bbloomer_display_payment_type_name_emails( $order ) {
   echo '<h2>Payment Type:</h2><p> ' . $order->get_payment_method_title() . '</p>';

Where to add this snippet?

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 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+.

  1. I’m using this code snippet but getting “payment_method_title was called incorrectly. Order properties should not be accessed directly.” errors in the php log. This seems to be related to recent changes in WooCommerce. Is there now a new way to call payment_method_title?

    I should add the code still works, just generates a warning.

    1. Spot on, snippet revised and updated. Thank you!

  2. Hi Rodolfo, we would be happy to pay for your email function that would include the STRIPE “brand” and “last4” of the credit card used.

    1. Hello Laz, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible – if you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot!

  3. Hi,

    this solution is putting payment info to all E-mails, is there solution for putting it on only to mails for orders sent from admin?

    1. Hi Filip, 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!

  4. Hi there,
    thanks for your snippet. How d I have to modify it, if I want to add more payment infos, like account number.

    Thanks in advance!

    Cheers, Riccardo

    1. Riccardo, thanks so much for your comment! Once again, yes, this 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
