Learn how to autocomplete WooCommerce orders after a customer completes the checkout process using the woocommerce_thankyou hook.


 * Auto-completes a WooCommerce order.
 * @since x.x.x
 * @link
 * @param int $order_id The order ID of the processed order.
add_action( 'woocommerce_thankyou', 'yourplugin_woocommerce_auto_complete_order' );
function yourplugin_woocommerce_auto_complete_order( $order_id ) {
  if ( ! $order_id ) { return; }
  $order = wc_get_order( $order_id );
  $order->update_status( 'completed' );

You could also change the “Completed” status to be another order status, like “Processing”.
