I am working on a new site using Magento 2.2. This is my first project using Magento 2. Can anyone guide me how to add the product SKU to the order confirmation email?

When I go to Backend -> Marketing -> Email Templates -> edit the New Order Confirmation Template, I saw this {{layout handle="sales_email_order_items" order=$order area="frontend"}} which will output the order product details. But I am not sure which file I should edit to add the product SKU, thanks.

Override vendor/magento/module-sales/view/frontend/templates/email/items/order/default.phtml to your theme


Now add sku <td class="item-sku"><?= $block->escapeHtml($block->getSku($_item)) ?></td> where you want to show sku

I added sku after product name here is final default.phtml

/** @var $block \Magento\Sales\Block\Order\Email\Items\DefaultItems */

/** @var $_item \Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Item */
$_item = $block->getItem();
$_order = $_item->getOrder();
    <td class="item-info<?php if ($block->getItemOptions()): ?> has-extra<?php endif; ?>">
        <p class="product-name"><?= $block->escapeHtml($_item->getName()) ?></p>
        <?php if ($block->getItemOptions()): ?>
            <dl class="item-options">
            <?php foreach ($block->getItemOptions() as $option): ?>
                <dt><strong><em><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  $option['label'] ?></em></strong></dt>
                    <?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  nl2br($option['value']) ?>
            <?php endforeach; ?>
        <?php endif; ?>
        <?php $addInfoBlock = $block->getProductAdditionalInformationBlock(); ?>
        <?php if ($addInfoBlock) :?>
            <?= $addInfoBlock->setItem($_item)->toHtml() ?>
        <?php endif; ?>
        <?= $block->escapeHtml($_item->getDescription()) ?>
    <!-- Here add sku column --> 
    <td class="item-sku"><?= $block->escapeHtml($block->getSku($_item)) ?></td>
    <td class="item-qty"><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  $_item->getQtyOrdered() * 1 ?></td>
    <td class="item-price">
        <?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  $block->getItemPrice($_item) ?>
<?php if ($_item->getGiftMessageId() && $_giftMessage = $this->helper('Magento\GiftMessage\Helper\Message')->getGiftMessage($_item->getGiftMessageId())): ?>
    <td colspan="3" class="item-extra">
        <table class="message-gift">
                    <h3><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  __('Gift Message') ?></h3>
                    <strong><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  __('From:') ?></strong> <?= $block->escapeHtml($_giftMessage->getSender()) ?>
                    <br /><strong><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  __('To:') ?></strong> <?= $block->escapeHtml($_giftMessage->getRecipient()) ?>
                    <br /><strong><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  __('Message:') ?></strong>
                    <br /><?= $block->escapeHtml($_giftMessage->getMessage()) ?>
<?php endif; ?>

Also you need to override vendor/magento/module-sales/view/frontend/templates/email/items.phtml for add new for sku


<th class="item-qty">
    <?= /* @escapeNotVerified */  __('Sku') ?>

  • Do you happen to know how to add a product attribute by attribute code to the email as well?

  • @PrincePatel So if I want to add my_sku attribute in email then can I use $_item->getMySku(); ? Commented Mar 20, 2018 at 5:51
  • @PrincePatel Okay. That $_tem->getId() will return item ID or product ID ? Commented Mar 20, 2018 at 6:06
  • $_item->getProduct()->getId(); will return the product ID. $_item->getMySku() will NOT return the value of the product attribute my_sku. I am actually working on add the product attribute to the email. No luck for now. I will keep you updated here once I find out.

  • @KishanPatadia I have checked $_item object and it has [product_id] So you can get product id by $_item->getProductId() Commented Mar 20, 2018 at 6:41
