Is it possible to set the welcome email with a "Hello <name>," instead of "Hello <username>" ? Given that I already modified woocommerce to require billing name and billing surname at registration form.
Thank you

Welcome to our forum.

Not sure which email template are you talking about, we don’t have parameter like <username> we use following format {user_name} can you please send me a screenshot about your issue?

I noticed you released an update with a {user_display_name} added among the fields list, I really appreciate your disposability, tha is awesome.

I tested it though and is showing the username as well, not sure why, maybe because our settings tell wp to auto generate the username from the email address?
What i'm collecting in the woocommerce registration form is Name (as billing_first_name) Surname (as billing_last_name), Email (which wp creates the username from) and Password. I think on the web was suggested to use the "billing_first_name" and last name in order to have them match the name and surname fields at checkout.

All the best

Hi, thanks for your reply!

I meant {user_name} , I'm talking about the New User Registered email in your plugin.
I'm a programmer i modified woocommerce to require name and surname upon registration as i mentioned, via child theme function.php storing them with billing_first_name and billing_last_name keys. That works, but I'd like to recall the billing_first_name when sending the New User Registered email at "Hello {user_name}, .." instead of {user_name}
