WooCommerce: Get List Of All Customers

by Tutor Aspire

Today’s snippet is a helpful shortcut for getting the list of customers in your WooCommerce website. This may be necessary during customization, especially if you need tailor-made features for administrators and shop managers in the backend or frontend.

How did I find out about the solution below? Well, our job is mainly copy/paste from online forums or read thoroughly the WooCommerce core files on a daily basis – so it must’ve been one of the two. Enjoy!

This is the backend area for WordPress users = “customers”. You will be able to get this exact list with the code below in case you need it elsewhere e.g. a dropdown for the admin, a custom report for store managers, and so on.

PHP Function: Get List of All WooCommerce “Customers”

function tutoraspire_customer_list() {
$customer_query = new WP_User_Query(
'fields' => 'ID',
'role' => 'customer',
return $customer_query->get_results();

Usage: call the tutoraspire_customer_list() function and then loop over the returned array to go through each customer and get whatever you need:

foreach ( tutoraspire_customer_list() as $customer_id ) {
$customer = new WC_Customer( $customer_id );
echo $customer->get_billing_first_name() . ' ' . $customer->get_billing_last_name();
