Add Order Meta Field to WooCommerce emails

In Version 2.9.2 of WP HTML Mail WooCommerce we introduced a new placeholder for advanced users to add any custom meta field from your WooCommerce orders to any of your transactional emails.

In our example we use a custom field “trackingnumber”. This can be added by any third party plugin, by your ERP software or manually.
