If you've installed a Customer Fields form on an 'Edit account page', the app will automatically add an "Edit account" link to the store's customer account page, which is available to customers after they have logged in to their account.

App embed

If you are using the newer app embed install method, you will need to edit the "Edit account" link text directly in your theme editor. To launch the editor, login to the Shopify admin and go to Sales channels > Online Store > Themes > Customize.

  1. Launch the theme editor.

  2. Go to App embeds and click Customer Fields.

  3. Scroll down to the Language section and edit the "Edit account link text" field.

Vintage form installs

If you are still using the older method of form installation (vintage), you will need to edit the theme code to change your edit account link text. However, we strongly recommend changing to the new app embed install method to make this easier in the future.

To change the text for this link you will need to edit the following file in the store's theme:


Inside of this file you should find the following code for the link itself:

<br><a href="/account?view=edit" style="font-size: 14px;">Edit account</a>ย 

Here you can replace the "Edit account" text within the a tag with your desired text. Make sure to save your changes once you're done and you'll be all set!
