I'm getting about new orders email properly, emails about account creation. But then order is cancelled ADMIN don't get emails about that.

In Woocommerce settings i checked emails for Cancelled order everything is fine. But system don't sends. I dont need for customers to get that but as site admin i want to get theese emails.

How can i achieve that or it's Woocommerce bug and somehow i can manage with function or Plugin?

  • Also I've checked email outgoing from WP Mail log plugin - but there is no line about Cancelled emails at all. So in other words system wont sending at all

Was the order moved from Pending to Cancelled? WooCommerce no longer sends an email to the admin for that (I think the logic is that a lot of bot-created Pending orders were automatically cancelled and giving admins too many notifications). You can restore the old behavior by hooking woocommerce_order_status_pending_to_cancelled_notification and calling WC()->mailer()->get_emails()['WC_Email_Cancelled_Order']->trigger with the order ID.

If that doesn't explain what you're seeing, can you elaborate on the state the orders are in, and how they are being cancelled?
