How to Display Product Name on the WooCommerce My Account > Orders Page

In WooCommerce, to retrieve a product’s name, you need to create a product object and then use the get_name() function to retrieve it. The Product Object allows developers to perform a variety of tasks like obtaining product information, managing inventory, applying discounts, and displaying product details on the front-end site.

In this post, we’ll discuss how to get the product name in WooCommerce on the My Account -> Orders page.

Where to Add Custom Code in WooCommerce?

It is advisable to add the code snippets to the functions.php file of your child theme. Access the file directly from Appearance->Theme File Editor->Locating the child theme’s functions.php from the right sidebar. You can also access it from your theme’s directory file. Insert the following code snippet in functions.php. The alternative & easy option is to install & activate the Code Snippets plugin. You can then add the code as a new snippet via the plugin.

Solution: Getting the Product Name in WooCommerce

Let’s consider, that you might want to display additional order item details for every order on the Order page under My Account. For instance, you could display the product names under the order table section for better order item transparency. Here’s the code snippet for this use case:

function ts_get_product_name_from_order_item($order_item) {
  $product_id = $order_item['product_id'];
  $product = wc_get_product($product_id);
  if ($product) {
    return $product->get_name();
  } else {
    return '';

add_filter('woocommerce_my_account_my_orders_columns', function($columns) {
  $new_columns = array();
  foreach ($columns as $key => $column) {
    if ($key === 'order-status') {
      $new_columns['product_name'] = __('Product Name', 'woocommerce');
    $new_columns[$key] = $column;
  return $new_columns;

add_action('woocommerce_my_account_my_orders_column_product_name', function($order_id) {
  $order = wc_get_order($order_id);
  $order_items = $order->get_items();
  foreach ($order_items as $order_item) {
    echo ts_get_product_name_from_order_item($order_item);
    echo '<br>';


On the WooCommerce Order page, all product names are displayed in a table format under each order as shown below.

How to Get the Product Name in WooCommerce

Code Explanation

Here, is the explanation of the code –

1. Product Name from Order Item Function

This function is defined to retrieve the name of a product based on an order item. It takes an order item as a parameter and performs the following actions:

  • Extracts the product ID from the order item.
  • Uses wc_get_product to retrieve the product object associated with the given product ID.
  • Check if a valid product object is obtained. If it exists, it returns the product’s name; otherwise, it returns an empty string

2. Adding a Custom Column to My Account Orders

The code adds a custom column named “Product Name” to the list of columns displayed in the “My Account” section for user orders. It does this by using the add_filter function on the woocommerce_my_account_my_orders_columns hook. The purpose of this filter is to modify the columns displayed in the user’s order history.

  • It initializes an empty array called $new_columns to store the updated column list.
  • It loops through the existing columns in the $columns array provided as a parameter.
  • If it encounters a column with the key ‘order-status’, it adds a new column with the key ‘product_name’ and the label “Product Name.”
  • It then adds the original column back to the $new_columns array.
  • Finally, it returns the updated $new_columns array, including the “Product Name” column.

3. Displaying Product Names in the Custom Column

The code adds an action to display the product names in the “Product Name” column for each order in the user’s order history. It uses the add_action function on the woocommerce_my_account_my_orders_column_product_name hook.

  • When this action is triggered, it receives the $order_id as a parameter.
  • It uses wc_get_order to retrieve the order object based on the $order_id.
  • It then retrieves all order items using $order->get_items().
  • It iterates through each order item and calls the ts_get_product_name_from_order_item function to get the product name.
  • It echoes the product name followed by a line break (<br>), displaying each product name on a new line in the “Product Name” column.


By using this code snippet, you can display the product names in a custom column named “Product Name” in the My Account orders table, making it easier for customers to see the products they have ordered. It is also possible to implement the feature of showcasing extra product details on the WooCommerce Admin > View Order page.

This is great! I also want to show the attributes of the product (only those selected as part of the order). How would that be done?

This is so close to what I need. Can you please show the code for adding the product name to the woocommerce admin order page. Under woocommerce- orders? I need to see the product name on all orders placed on my website without going into each individual order.
