Preview Woocommerce Email Templates

Customizing Woocommerce email templates can be tricky if you’re unable to preview the changes that you make, and Woocommerce addons can get pricy.

Woocommerce Preview Emails plugin, found here on Github, allows for previewing of template changes made within the browser window.

Upload the file via FTP to your theme folder woocommerce/emails/woo-preview-emails.php and require through functions.php

$preview = get_template_directory() . '/woocommerce/emails/woo-preview-emails.php';

if(file_exists($preview)) {
    require $preview;

This will add the menu item to Woocommerce > Settings > Emails so you can preview the templates.
