Cart notes

Last updated: Feb 21, 2019


You can add a text area to the cart page that allows customers to share special instructions for their order. Cart notes are submitted with a customer's order, and will appear on their order page in the Shopify admin. This code will display the user’s instructions in a textarea element.

  1. Add the following code to the cart.liquid file, inside the form. Cart notes typically appear just before the checkout button. Make sure that you keep name="note" so that cart notes are submitted correctly.
<label for="CartNote">Special instructions</label>
<textarea name="note" id="CartNote">{{ cart.note }}</textarea>
