Do_action after the page has been built in wordpress

I added an action on woocommerce_thankyou

that has a 45 second delay in it and this causes the page to hang for 45 seconds while it is executing. I was wondering if there would be some way to link this to an action that might fire after the page is created woocommerce thankyou.php

. I've already tried adding my own do_action

at the end of the script, but it didn't work. The page is still hanging for 45 seconds.

This action and its function ...

add_action('woocommerce_thankyou', 'call_restaurant');

function call_restaurant() {
    require_once '/home/mywebsite/public_html/voice/Services/call.php';

    $sid = "bla bla bla";
    $token = "bla bla bla";

    $from_number = "3055551234"; // Calls must be made from a registered Twilio number.
    $to_number = "3055551234";
    $message = "Hello. You have received a new order from eat three sixty five miami dot com";

    $client = new Services_Twilio($sid, $token, "2010-04-01");
    $call = $client->account->calls->create(
    echo 'phone call has been made';


The reason I am doing this is because I am trying to make an automatic phone call 45 seconds after the order was created.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

My solution was to connect to the wordpress footer and within the function I created, I used a conditional woocommerce tag that only outputs my ajax request if I am on the Order Received page. Here is the action I created in my themes functions.php files ...

add_action ('wp_footer', 'print_call_restaurant_javascript');

function print_call_restaurant_javascript () {

    if (is_wc_endpoint_url ('order-received')) {
        echo '  

            var xmlhttp;

            if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
                // code for IE7 +, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
                xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest ();
            } else {
                // code for IE6, IE5
                xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject ("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");

            xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function () {
                if (xmlhttp.readyState == XmlHttpRequest.DONE) {
                   if (xmlhttp.status == 200) {
                       document.getElementById ("myDiv"). innerHTML = xmlhttp.responseText;
                   else if (xmlhttp.status == 400) {
                      alert (\ 'There was an error 400 \');
                   else {
                       alert (\ 'something else other than 200 was returned \');

   ("GET", "", true);
            xmlhttp.send ();



I hope others can find this useful :)
