This code snippet demonstrates how to export WooCommerce orders into a text file using the wp_remote_request function. First, we retrieve the orders from WooCommerce using the wc_get_orders function, filtering by desired order statuses (completed and processing in this example). Then, we iterate through each order and append relevant information like order ID, order total, customer name, and email to the $content variable.

Next, we define the file path for the text file using the WP_CONTENT_DIR constant and specify the content type as plain text. We then make a POST request to the file path using wp_remote_request with the prepared headers and content. If the request is successful, you can perform additional actions with the exported file.

Remember to include this code in your wp-plugin.php file and customize it as needed. Also, make sure to test it thoroughly before deploying it on a live site.
