How to Customise your Shopify Store - Customer Account

Customising your Shopify store's customer account section can greatly enhance the user experience and help build trust with your customers. Here's a guide on how to do it:

How to Customise Your Shopify Store's Customer Account

Step 1: Access your Shopify Admin

Log in to your Shopify account using your credentials. Once logged in, you'll land on your Shopify admin dashboard.

Step 2: Navigate to the Theme Editor

  1. From your Shopify admin dashboard, navigate to "Online Store" and then click on "Themes."
  2. Find the theme you're currently using and click on the "Actions" button next to it.
  3. Select "Edit code" from the dropdown menu. This will take you to the theme editor where you can make customisations to your theme's code.

Step 3: Locate the Customer Account Templates

In the theme editor, you'll see a list of files on the left-hand side. Look for the section related to customer account templates. This may vary depending on your theme, but typically, you'll find files such as customer.liquid or account.liquid.

Step 4: Customise the Customer Account Templates

  1. Click on the file you want to customise (e.g., customer.liquid).
  2. Familiarise yourself with the code. This is where you can make changes to the layout, design, and functionality of the customer account section.
  3. Make your desired modifications using HTML, CSS, and Liquid, Shopify's templating language.
  4. Save your changes by clicking the "Save" button.

Step 5: Preview and Test

After making your changes, it's important to preview them to ensure everything looks and functions as intended:

  1. Click on the "Eye" icon at the top of the theme editor to preview your changes.
  2. Navigate to your customer account page to see how your customisations appear to customers.
  3. Test the functionality of any interactive elements to ensure they work correctly.

Step 6: Publish Your Changes

Once you're satisfied with your customisations and they've been thoroughly tested, it's time to make them live:

  1. Close the preview window.
  2. Click on the "Save" button to save your changes.
  3. Finally, click on the "Publish" button to make your customisations live on your Shopify store.

Step 7: Monitor and Iterate

Keep an eye on how your customers interact with the newly customised customer account section. Monitor any feedback or metrics related to user experience and make adjustments as needed to further improve usability and functionality.


Customising your Shopify store's customer account section allows you to tailor the experience to better suit your brand and the needs of your customers. By following these steps, you can create a seamless and engaging user experience that helps build trust and loyalty with your audience.
