In my store there are two payment methods enabled. One of these is the "Bank Transfer". I would like to be able to add the bank details in the "New order email template" only when the customer has choosen the "Bank Transfer" payment method.

Is there a way to check this information inside the template with something like

{{if payment == 'banktransfer'}}
 Bank Details

or is there a way to use multiple template based on the payment method specified by the customer?

I managed to do it by including a block into the template. In the middle of my template I inserted this:

{{block type='core/template' area='frontend' template='email/order/bankdetails.phtml' order=$order store=$store}}

insid the bankdetails.phtml file I perform this check to decide whether to include bank details or not:

<?php $_order = $this->getOrder(); ?>
<?php if(!is_null($_order) && $_order->getPayment()->getMethodInstance()->getCode() == 'banktransfer') : ?>

bank details

<?php endif; ?>

I had the same problem as you. In my solution:

I have two payment methods: 'banktransfer' and 'cashondelivery'. These are the codes of the methods. In email template files getting payment method code you have to insert this:

{{var order.getPayment().getMethodInstance().getCode()}}

In my order_new.html template file the block of the "Bank Details" was:


I inserted a class attribute into table element:

<table class="{{var order.getPayment().getMethodInstance().getCode()}}-email">

My template file uses inline CSS file (at the begining):

{{inlinecss file="email-inline.css"}}

In this email skin/frontend/base/default/css/email-inline.css I inserted this:

   display: none;

It results if the code of the payment method is 'cashondelivery', the block of the "Bank Details" won't be displayed.

If later there will be more (not banktransfer-like) method, I will only add some class selectors to CSS file.

If in your shop 'Guest Checkout' is allowed, it is worth repeatig the above changes in order_guest_new.html template files.


I'm just going to leave this answer here for Magento 2...

I have set up a custom module which includes the ability to add bank details to the email. There are many resources online which detail how to set up a custom module so I am just going to add the specific files related to the question here:

In the email template add the following:

{{layout area="frontend" handle="banktransfer_email_template_message" order=$order }}

Then in your module add the following file:


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  label="Bank Transfer Email Template Message"
    <block class="Vendor\ModuleName\Block\View"

Then add the View class:



namespace Vendor\ModuleName\Block;

use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;
use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context;
use Magento\Store\Model\ScopeInterface;
use Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface;

class View extends Template
     * @var ScopeConfigInterface
     * */
    private $scopeConfig;

    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->scopeConfig = $context->getScopeConfig();

     * @return mixed
    public function getAdditionalInfoMessageFromConfig() {
    /** I have added a custom field to admin where I retrieve the 
    * bank details but you can enter your bank details in the text 
    * field already given in 
    * Stores/Configuration/Sales/Payment Methods/Bank Transfer/Instructions text field */
        return $this->scopeConfig->getValue('payment/banktransfer/instructions', ScopeInterface::SCOPE_STORE);


Add the template file:


/** @var \Vendor\ModuleName\Block\View $block */
<div class="bank-transfer-email-message">

    $var = $block->getData('order')->getPayment()->getMethodInstance()->getCode();

    if ($var == 'banktransfer') {
        echo $block->getAdditionalInfoMessageFromConfig();


Hope this helps someone in the future!
