I am working on a custom Magento Extension.

I am wondering how can i select all users who ever paid an order. I mean users which have one order with status complete.

Here is the code that has been given to me for this purpose, but it is not working as intended:

$customers = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')


$data = $customers->getData();
foreach($data as $d)
    //print_r($d); // print this to see the available fields 
    echo $d[customer_email]; //get the desired information
    echo "<br>";

Right now i am wondering is it even possible ?

  • you don't seem to be testing the status of the order Commented Jul 2, 2015 at 12:31
  • I do not know how to test it. This code is suggestion given to me, but i think it is not even close. Commented Jul 2, 2015 at 12:36
  • how about you do it the other way around, query the orders which have been completed and join the user table with the emails? Commented Jul 2, 2015 at 12:40

First,you need to decide how define an order as paid.

Basically, We have define an order by order status.

Order with status Complete,invoice,Shipment,processingcalculated as paid order.

So,you need add sales_flat_order table's column status to your collection filler the collection.


As you want to filer customer collection by customer's completed orders count that

I have

  • Create a sub Query using table sales_flat_order table

$subSelect = Mage::getSingleton( 'core/resource' )->getConnection( 'core_read' )->select() ->from(array('o' =>Mage::getSingleton('core/resource')->getTableName('sales/order')), 'COUNT(*)') ->where('o.customer_id = e.entity_id ');

  • filter the table by status =complete

$subSelect->where('o.status = ?', 'complete');

  • Then add this sub select query to customer collection as new columns (order_count) to customer collection.

$collection->getSelect()->columns(array('order_count' => $subSelect))

then using having closure filer by this virtual columns :

`$collection->getSelect()->having('order_count > 0');`

Try this query as you want on basic of complete orders:

$collection = Mage::getResourceModel('customer/customer_collection')
        ->joinAttribute('billing_postcode', 'customer_address/postcode', 'default_billing', null, 'left')
        ->joinAttribute('billing_city', 'customer_address/city', 'default_billing', null, 'left')
        ->joinAttribute('billing_telephone', 'customer_address/telephone', 'default_billing', null, 'left')
        ->joinAttribute('billing_region', 'customer_address/region', 'default_billing', null, 'left')
        ->joinAttribute('billing_country_id', 'customer_address/country_id', 'default_billing', null, 'left');
$subSelect =  Mage::getSingleton( 'core/resource' )->getConnection( 'core_read' )->select()
            ->from(array('o' =>Mage::getSingleton('core/resource')->getTableName('sales/order')), 'COUNT(*)')
            ->where('o.customer_id = e.entity_id ')
            ->where('o.status = ?', 'complete');

 echo $collection->getSelect()->columns(array('order_count' => $subSelect))->having('order_count > 0');
  • Yes i need orders with status Complete and then somehow i have to get information for all users, but i do not know how.\ Commented Jul 2, 2015 at 14:16
