List Orders with Backorders for WooCommerce

List Orders with Backorders for WooCommerce | Howard Ehrenberg


While WooCommerce makes it easy to allow for customers to backorder items, there is no mechanism for retailers to keep track of what orders actually have backordered items on them.

This plugin will automatically detect backordered items for orders that are placed though WooCommerce.

You can also modify the order meta (by editing the order) to update the Backordered quantity, or manually add “Backordered” as a Meta Key and the quantity as the Meta Value. This plugin will only detect orders whose status is pending, processing, or on-hold. Completed orders will automatically remove themselves from the list.

Version 2.0 Includes jQuery DataTables to allow easy manipulation of the output of the backordered items list, and allows for export to PDF, XLS, or CSV files.

Report Title is in Ymd_backorder_list Format. This can be filtered in your functions.php with filter ‘dd_list_backorders_report_title’

for example:

add_filter('dd_list_backorders_report_title', function(){return 'this_is_the_title';});


This plugin requires the use of WooCommerce.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/list-backorders-woocommerce directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
