How can I customize tabs?

First of all you need add a filter to changes how tabs are rendered, and at this point you could add, change or move tabs.

This is the structure for a tab:

$tab = array(
    'tab-identifier' => array(
        'label' => 'My tab',
        'selectors' => array(

This is an example of tab customization:

function custom_download_tabs( $tabs ) {
    // Adding a meta box to general tab
    $tabs['general']['selectors'][] = '#my-meta-box';

    // Moving a tab
    $temp_tab = $tabs['price-files'];


    $tabs['price-files'] = $temp_tab;

    // Removing a tab

    return $tabs;

add_filter( 'edd_admin_tabs_download_tabs', 'custom_download_tabs');

Note: Meta boxes that are not in a tab will be kept always visible, such as submit meta box
