Show customers how much they have spent on your Easy Digital Downloads store


Although Easy Digital Downloads shows the total spent for each customer under Downloads → Reports → Customers, there’s no way for a customer themselves to see how much they have spent on your store.

The following code will allow you to show a logged in customer how much they’ve spent, anywhere on your website.

Copy and paste the following function (mind the opening PHP tag) into your child theme's functions.php or custom plugin:

* Get the total spent for a customer.
* When no customer is passed into the function, it will get the currently logged in user's total spent
* Usage: <?php echo andrew_edd_get_total_spent_for_customer(); ?>
function andrew_edd_get_total_spent_for_customer( $user_id = '' ) {
// if no user ID is passed in, default to the currently logged in user.
if ( ! $user_id ) {
$user_id = get_current_user_id();
// Get customers.
$customers = EDD()->customers->get_customers(
'number' => -1,
'user_id' => $user_id
// Get customers purchase values.
$purchase_values = array();
if ( $customers ) {
foreach ( $customers as $customer ) {
$purchase_values[] = $customer->purchase_value;
// Get the total spent and format it.
$total_spent = edd_currency_filter( edd_format_amount( array_sum( $purchase_values ) ) );
// Return the amount the customer has spent.
return $total_spent;

Then, you can simply call:

<?php echo andrew_edd_get_total_spent_for_customer(); ?>

Alternatively, if you need to show only a specific customer’s total spent, you can pass a user ID into the function like this:

<?php echo andrew_edd_get_total_spent_for_customer( 50 ); ?>
