// Add Cancel Order Button to My Account Order Details Page
function wps_add_cancel_order_button( $order ) {
    $order_id = $order->get_id();
    $order_status = $order->get_status();

    // Check if the order status is pending or processing
    if ( in_array( $order_status, array( 'pending', 'processing' ) ) ) {
        echo '<form method="post">        // Output the cancel order button
                <input type="hidden" name="cancel_order" value="' . $order_id . '">
                <button type="submit" class="button cancel-order">Cancel Order</button>
add_action( 'woocommerce_order_details_after_order_table', 'wps_add_cancel_order_button', 10 );

//Process Cancel Order Action
function wps_process_cancel_order_action() {
    if ( isset( $_POST['cancel_order'] ) && is_user_logged_in() ) {  // Check if the cancel order button is clicked
        $order_id = absint( $_POST['cancel_order'] );
        $order = wc_get_order( $order_id );    // Get the order object

        // Check if the order exists and is associated with the current user
        if ( $order && get_current_user_id() === $order->get_customer_id() ) {
            $order->update_status( 'cancelled' );   // Cancel the order
            wp_redirect( wc_get_account_endpoint_url( 'orders' ) );    // Redirect to the My Account Orders page
add_action( 'init', 'wps_process_cancel_order_action' );

Code Explanation

  • We use the woocommerce_order_details_after_order_table hook to add the cancel order button below the order details table.
  • The button is displayed only if the order status is pending or processing.
  • When the button is clicked, the process_cancel_order_action function is triggered.
  • This function cancels the order and redirects the user back to their My Account Orders page.
