Add ID Column to Payment Methods Table

Sometimes when you work with payment gateways on your website, you need to know their IDs (slugs). In this tutorial I show how to add a column to the payment gateways table in WooCommerce settings using a small piece of code.

Here is our result:

Payment method ID column
“Misha Gateway” is a custom payment gateway we created in this tutorial.

In order to achieve that all you have to do is to add this code to your current or child theme functions.php.

add_filter( 'woocommerce_payment_gateways_setting_columns', 'rudr_add_payment_method_column' );

function rudr_add_payment_method_column( $default_columns ) {

	$default_columns = array_slice( $default_columns, 0, 2 ) + array( 'id' => 'ID' ) + array_slice( $default_columns, 2, 3 );
	return $default_columns;


// woocommerce_payment_gateways_setting_column_{COLUMN ID}
add_action( 'woocommerce_payment_gateways_setting_column_id', 'rudr_populate_gateway_column' );

function rudr_populate_gateway_column( $gateway ) {

	echo '<td style="width:10%">' . $gateway->id . '</td>';


What else is in $gateway object? You can try to print_r() it in order to find out.

echo '<td>' . print_r( $gateway, true ) . '</td>';
