What would you like to do?
WooCommerce total order weight column on orders page
add_filter( 'manage_edit-shop_order_columns', 'woo_order_weight_column' );
function woo_order_weight_column( $columns ) {

if ( empty( $the_order ) || $the_order->get_id() !== $post->ID )
$the_order = new WC_Order( $post->ID );
if ( $column == 'total_weight' ) {
$weight = 0;
if ( sizeof( $the_order->get_items() ) > 0 ) {
foreach( $the_order->get_items() as $item ) {
if ( $item['product_id'] > 0 ) {
$_product = $item->get_product();
if ( ! $_product->is_virtual() ) {
$weight += $_product->get_weight() * $item['qty'];

print $weight . ' ' . esc_attr( get_option('woocommerce_weight_unit' ) );
} else {
print 'N/A';

Which file does this go in to display total weights?

If the code doesn't work first time, just add a later priority to the main filter to avoid that WC clears columns while loading :

add_filter( 'manage_edit-shop_order_columns', 'woo_order_weight_column',20 );

Awesome. It works like a charm! Thank you.

I am trying to pull the order weight using a UPS Worldship Export Plugin (

How can I modify the following code to pull weight as well? I was able to get the order column, but it would be great to some how store it in meta data.

$query = $wpdb->prepare( "SELECT orden.ID AS order_number,
                    orden.post_modified AS last_date,
                    orden.post_excerpt AS deliverynotes,
                    orden.post_modified AS formatteddate,
                    user.ID AS user_id,
                    user.user_email AS user_email,
                    user.display_name AS user_name,
                    user.user_login AS user_login
                    FROM {$wpdb->posts} AS orden
                    LEFT JOIN {$wpdb->postmeta} AS meta
                    ON (meta.post_id = orden.ID)
                    LEFT JOIN {$wpdb->users} AS user
                    ON (user.ID=meta.meta_value )
                    AND orden.post_status not in ('trash',  'auto-draft')
                    AND meta.meta_key='_customer_user'
                    AND orden.ID IN ({$orderIdsArrStr})" , '');

                $results = $wpdb->get_results($query);

                if ( !empty( $results ) ) {
                    $OrderXML = '<?xml version="1.0"?>
                <OpenShipments xmlns="x-schema:OpenShipments.xdr">';

                    foreach($results as $result) {

                       $NewOrderID=get_post_meta( $OrderId, "_order_number", true );

Any chance this could be updated?
Maybe even combined with this:

I got this in error log today:
"PHP Deprecated: WC_Abstract_Legacy_Order :: get_product_from_item
Use $item->get_product() instead."

replace L20
$_product = $the_order->get_product_from_item( $item );
$_product = $item->get_product();

However, now I get:
PHP Notice: id was called incorrectly. Order properties should not be accessed directly.

How to fix this?

I updated the gist to make it compatible with the latest version of WooCommerce.

I have changed line 22 to avoid PHP Warning: A non-numeric value encountered

$weight += floatval($_product->get_weight()) * $item['quantity'];

Copy link

Fantastic, worked flawlessly!

Hi! I need to show the total weight of the order in the Frontend @ the Order of My Account. I have found the way to add the columns and show some product data but not the weight. Help will be much appreciated!

Copy link

Is there a way to store this value in an Advanced Custom Field or as order meta field?

The code is now giving:
Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /home/public_html/wp-content/plugins/theme-customisations/custom/functions.php on line xx
Where xx=$weight += $_product->get_weight() * $item['qty'];
I fixed it by using the is_numeric on $product_weight before using it.
