Click on the Settings and you will be presented with two different options Settings and Endpoints. You will use both of them to change the existing content and layout of your WooCommerce Account Dashboard. Let’s discuss both of them one by one.
Here you can find different options to customize the dashboard content. Each option is described below:
Custom Avatar: Enabling this option will show User Avatar in the Account Dashboard and users will be able to upload an image of their choice.
You can disable this option if you do not want your users to upload their avatar from their account dashboard
Endpoint Icon: Enabling this option will allow you to set icons beside your endpoints. You can choose between multiple icons that suit your endpoint name.
Endpoint Icon Position: The selected endpoint icons can be positioned either right or left side of the endpoint. You can choose between the options right and left as per your choice.
Default Endpoint: You can choose any endpoint from all the endpoints to display by default when a user visits the My Account Page. Suppose, you choose downloads as the default endpoint then the downloads tab will be shown to the user when they visit the My Account Page.
Here you will find multiple options to customize an endpoint. You will also be able to create Groups, Links, and add new Endpoints. Every feature is described below:
An endpoint that appears by default or a created endpoint has the following options that can impact its appearance on the My Account Page.

Slug: (This option appears only in the case of custom endpoint and not the default ones.) Type in your custom slug for the endpoint that you have created. By default, a slug is generated based on the Endpoint Name but you can change it as per your requirement.

Click on the Add Group link on the top right and you will be asked to enter the Group Name. Type in the name of the group and hit enter.

Currently, the plugin is by default compatible with followin plugins
- WooCommerce Bookings by WooCommerce
- WooCommerce Subscription Downloads by WooCommerce
- WooCommerce Subscriptions by WooCommerce
- WooCommerce Memberships by SkyVerge
So, whenever the plugin is activated, the endpoints added by other plugins except the above four will be overridden. You can follow the following steps if you want to add the third party plugins endpoint.
We are going to take Awesome Support – WordPress HelpDesk & Support Plugin by Awesome Support Team as an example to demonstrate adding the endpoints.
Step 1: Deactivate the Customize My Account for WooCommerce plugin and activate the Awesome Support plugin.
Step 2: Refresh my account page and take a note of the new endpoints added by the Awesome Support plugin.
As you can see, Awesome Support has added two endpoints: Open a support ticket and My tickets. We are going to copy the link of those endpoints by right clicking on them, and selecting the copy link address. The links should be similar to below:
- Open a support ticket = https://yourwebsite.com/my-account/0/
- My tickets = https://yourwebsite.com/my-account/my-tickets/
Step 3 : Activate the Customize My Account for WooCommerce plugin and go to my account page again. As you can see, there are no endpoints added by the Awesome Support.
Step 4: Goto to the Settings -> Endpoints of the Customize My Account for WooCommerce plugin.
Step 5 : Add a link. Set the label as ‘Open a support ticket’ and URL as https://yourwebsite.com/my-account/0/ and save it.
Step 6: Add a link. Set the label as ‘My tickets’ and URL as https://yourwebsite.com/my-account/my-tickets/ and save it.
Step 7: Refresh the my account page, the Awesome Support endpoints should be there now, and work as expected before.
Enable debug mode: By default, WordPress loads minified versions of CSS and JS files so as to lower the load times. Enable debug mode feature is specially introduced for the testing purposes of the plugin itself during the development time. As we know, WordPress gives a constant that we can add to our wp-config.php file called SCRIPT_DEBUG. WordPress will automatically load the non-minified versions of all CSS and JS files when this constant is defined as TRUE.
Now you can do all these things by simply clicking the checkbox inside the plugin setting rather than going to the wp-config.php file. By default, the debug mode is disabled which means it loads minified files. If you enable this checkbox, unminified version of JS files will load.
