WooCommerce: "This key is invalid …" error

  php, woocommerce, wordpress

I’ve created a custom reset password page on my WooCommerce site. The reset page was previously /my-account/lost-password/, but my custom page is /reset-password/.

In my theme, I’ve copied over the WooCommerce customer-reset-password.php so I could customise the URL in the email to point to my new page. The link in the email looks like this:

<a class="link" href="<?php echo esc_url( add_query_arg( array( 'key' => $reset_key, 'id' => $user_id ), home_url()." /reset-password/ " ) ); ?>">
  <?php // phpcs:ignore ?>
  <?php esc_html_e( 'Click here to reset your password', 'woocommerce' ); ?>
</a>

Now, when I go to /lost-password/, and enter my email address. I successfully receive a reset email with the link pointing to the correct page: /reset-password/?key=p5iemdCVtG4qkh5WQH8B&id=31

Upon clicking on the link in the email, I can then enter my new password and re-enter new password (I’m using the WooCommerce reset_password_form shortcode to show the form).

However, when filling out these fields, and clicking submit, I get the following message:
This key is invalid or has already been used. Please reset your password again if needed.

I’ve had a look into existing threads, namely:

Unsure how to proceed?
