I have a custom function that is triggered with event sales_order_place_after, I need to retrieve the shipping address in this function.

I tried $observer->getCustomerAddress(), but it didn't work. How could I get the shipping address?

This is my function

        public function SalesOrderPlaceAfter($observer)

            $orderIds = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder()->getId();   
                if (!empty($orderIds)) 
//This get me the shipping method. it's working.
    $shipping_method = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder()->getShippingMethod(); 

// this is not working, How can I get the shipping address?
    $shipping_address = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder()->getShippingAddress(); 
  • Can you add your Observer.php code to the question?

You've loaded the Address object as per Rene's answer, here's how you'd get the fields;

$_shippingAddress = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder()->getShippingAddress();

echo $_shippingAddress->getFirstname();
echo $_shippingAddress->getLastname();
echo $_shippingAddress->getCompany();
echo $_shippingAddress->getStreetFull();
echo $_shippingAddress->getRegion();
echo $_shippingAddress->getCity();
echo $_shippingAddress->getPostcode();
echo $_shippingAddress->getTelephone();
echo $_shippingAddress->getCountryId();

should get you the shipping address.

  • I tried your code, it only returned a "Object" Aug 31, 2017 at 14:53

    @xxx have you tried iterating through the Object, or directly calling part of it, e.g. $observer->getEvent()->getOrder()->getShippingAddress()->getCountryId()? Aug 31, 2017 at 15:18
  • @RickyOdinMatthews I can get country ID with your code. How can I get the rest address information? Thanks. Aug 31, 2017 at 15:32
  • $observer->getEvent()->getOrder()->getShippingAddress()->getData() will show you what elements the shipping address contains, you can then replace getData() with getCountryId() or other data you want to get. Sep 4, 2017 at 9:55
