Easy steps to add new tabs in the “My Account” page without coding

The WooCommerce My Account page is an essential part of any WooCommerce store. It has always been a most requested feature by designers and developers to customize the WooCommerce My Account page. This page should be well designed and easy to navigate for your users. Making the WooCommerce account management system more attractive also represents your dedication to your customers and business.

By default, the My Account page contains a WooCommerce shortcode. Here you can see that the WooCommerce My Account page doesn’t look very attractive and not appealing to most of the users

The default account management tabs include –

  • Dashboard
  • Orders
  • Downloads
  • Addresses
  • Account details
  • Logout


Elementor doesn’t have the options to the interface of the WooCommerce My Account page, add new tabs, or change the tab style. That’s why CoDesigner came up with exciting widgets to customize, design layout, change content, and add new tabs to the WooCommerce My Account page.

CoDesigner includes 2 widgets to customize the WooCommerce My Account page –

  1. My Account (Free)
  2. My Account Advanced (Premium) – it has an additional feature to add new tabs.


My Account Advanced widget by CoDesigner is easy to set up and design. You can add new tabs on My Account Advanced without writing a single code. Also, if you only wish to design the My Account page then the free version of the CoDesginer My Account widget will do the work. Whether you are using the free or premium widget, you will get an error-free experience to achieve what you need.

In this article, you will see the steps to design, customize, and add new tabs using My Account advanced. The design and customization options for both widgets are similar, so you will also have the idea to design and customize the free version of My Account.
