    I’ve created custom hidden field on woocommerce checkout, that saves additional information from a customer. Specifically customer’s author profile link. So when a vendor A makes a purchase from vendor B, vendor A’s author URL is saved like this: https://example.com/author/vendorA , I’m doing this so that vendors can see personal profiles from those vendors who bought a product. It’s kind of a marketplace where vendors can purchase products from each other.

    So I want to display this URL value on vendor’s order page under customer details(under the name) who bought the product.

    Can anyone suggest me how to achieve this?


    Here’s a code below that’s doing what I’ve described:

    add_action( 'woocommerce_after_order_notes', 'my_custom_checkout_hidden_field', 10, 1 );
    function my_custom_checkout_hidden_field( $checkout ) {
        // Get an instance of the current user object
        $user = wp_get_current_user();
        // The user link
        $user_link = home_url( '/author/' . $user->user_login );
        // Output the hidden link
        echo '
    add_action( 'woocommerce_checkout_update_order_meta', 'save_custom_checkout_hidden_field', 10, 1 );
    function save_custom_checkout_hidden_field( $order_id ) {
        if ( ! empty( $_POST['user_link'] ) )
            update_post_meta( $order_id, '_user_link', sanitize_text_field( $_POST['user_link'] ) );

    Anyone knows if there is a possible solution for this? Which file would I need to edit?


    This may help you– the last part of the Gist shows how I rendered info entered in a custom filed on the product page into the order details and emails.


    Hi Anna, thanks for this. I’m not sure if this is what I’m looking for: Basically I need to display this custom checkout field from checkout on vendor’s dashboard (not on Woocommerce order pages), under customer details who bought the product(or somewhere else in that orders dashboard table in vendor’s dashboard).

    Is this last part of your gist can be used in relation to what I’ve described?



    Here’s what I did:

    I added $new_row in pro-order-controller “user_link”:

    $new_row->ID			= $order->get_order_number(); 
    				$new_row->order_number	= $order->get_order_number(); 
    				$new_row->customer		= $customer_details; 
    				$new_row->products 		= $products_html;
    				$new_row->total 		= $total_text;
    				$new_row->status 		= $shipped;
                                    $new_row->user_link     = $user_link;
    				$new_row->order_date	= date_i18n( wc_date_format(), strtotime( $order->order_date ) ) . '<br /><strong>' . ucfirst( $order->get_status() ) . '</strong>'; 
    				$new_row->row_actions 	= $row_actions; 
    				$new_row->action_after 	= $this->order_details_template( $_order ) . $this->order_note_template( $order->get_order_number() ) . $this->tracking_number_template( $order->get_order_number(), get_current_user_id() ); 
    				do_action( 'wcv_orders_add_new_row', $new_row ); 
    				$rows[] = $new_row; 

    And in the same file, I added a “Profile” column in table columns:

    public function table_columns( ) {
    		$columns = apply_filters( 'wcv_order_table_columns', array( 
    					'ID' 			=> __( 'ID', 			'wcvendors-pro' ), 
    					'order_number'	=> __( 'Order Number', 		'wcvendors-pro' ),
    					'customer'  	=> __( 'Customer', 		'wcvendors-pro' ),
    					'products'  	=> __( 'Product', 		'wcvendors-pro' ), 
    					'total'  		=> __( 'Commission', 		'wcvendors-pro' ), 
    				       'order_date'  	=> __( 'Sale Date', 	'wcvendors-pro' ),
                                           'user_link'     => __( 'Profile', 'wcvendors-pro'),
    		) ); 

    So this is displaying a new column in table column, but the Profile column is empty there’s no link in it..


    Here’s a solution but this is only displays URL without hyperlink if anyone needs it:

    Just change $new_row for “user_link” field with this:

    $new_row->user_link = get_post_meta( $order->id, '_user_link', true );

    Still figuring out how to make hyperlink for this new_row
