I have one module where i can set email address in back end. When order placed i want to send that order email copy to my custom email address which is set in backend.

I want to add an observer when order placed and send email copy to my custom email address.

how can i achieve this functionality with custom module?


  • Hey, so you want to send a new order email to the client and your custom email? Magento has that option, it is a requirement being a custom module?

  • I know that Magento has that config in admin. But for example I buy a product and I want to tell a friend that I just bought the product. So I want to write this module Dec 22, 2020 at 11:51
  • So you need that to work on the frontend, so the customer insert another email to where the new order email will be sent to along with the one to himself? or just on the backend and only admins can select the email it will be sent to?

    Hey, I'm checking it, can you try to getSender and then use $sender->sendCopyTo($email) , I don't know if it will work using the sendCopyTo this way but if you can try it. Check vendor/magento/module-sales/Model/Order/Email/Sender.php might help a bit as example of what magento core use

observer and event.xml sales_model_service_quote_submit_before

     * @var \Magento\Checkout\Model\Session
    protected $_checkoutSession;
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Checkout\Model\Session $checkoutSession
        $this->_checkoutSession = $checkoutSession;
     * @param Observer $observer
     * @return void
    public function execute(Observer $observer)
        $order = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder();
        $quote = $observer->getEvent()->getQuote();


override plugin Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Email\Container\OrderIdentity

public function getEmailCopyTo()

        $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
        $currentEmailCc = $objectManager->get('Magento\Checkout\Model\Session');
        $emailCC = $currentEmailCc->getEmailCc();

        $data = $this->getConfigValue(self::XML_PATH_EMAIL_COPY_TO, $this->getStore()->getStoreId());

        $data2 = $data.','.$emailCC;

        if (!empty($data) && !empty($emailCC)) {
            return array_map('trim', explode(',', $data2));
        if (empty($data) && !empty($emailCC)){
            return array_map('trim', explode(',', $emailCC));
        if (!empty($data) && empty($emailCC) ){
            return array_map('trim', explode(',', $data));
        if (empty($data) && empty($emailCC)) {
            return false;
