Add Text to The Emails Body

A man with tools

In WooCommerce, with every order, comes one or more emails. WooCommerce sends automatically to the shop manager or to the customer, depending on the current step of the purchase process and they have some pre-defined messages.

These messages change based on the email sent and there are no options to change them. Sometimes you may need to add more text to all emails, such as a notice that says that the order is an online order. How do you do this?

Guess what? Custom code!

Open the file functions.php in wp-content/themes/your-child-theme-name/ and add this code at the end of the file:

This will add the specified content right after the header section of the email but before any pre-defined content.

  2. That’s great idea! I’m wondering how to use it for one type of email only? I’d like to add some text in completed order email.

    1. Hi Herbatka,
      It would be easier to add your content in the actual content section of that email instead of the header, and you would do it by overriding the email template.
