We need to add a text field or box, where when the customer chooses the "Purchase Order" payment method, they can enter their Purchase Order number on the spot and it shows somewhere in shopify.
We know the custom payment method can be added, but we can only leave a note for the client, they can't leave any notes for us when choosing that payment method.
No, we don't want to use the Order Notes from the Cart page, it doesn't flow properly and many people will miss it.
Please help, Thank you in advance !
Did you ever get an answer or find a solution for this problem? We have a few wholesale customers who require that their PO numbers be referenced on all correspondence concerning their orders - invoices, packing slips, and all email correspondence. So far we're doing all this outside of Shopify because we can't find a way to record the PO number with their orders within Shopify. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
If you're not a Shopify Plus merchant you should look into adding this note field on the cart page instead of checkout:
This doesnt help us because we need it to be an integral part of the order. We need customers to be able to replace the Shopify Order Number with their own reference number
We found a way to add a PO# field to the cart page using Cart Attributes. You need to be able to code to do it, but we were able to get a text field that appears underneath the Order Instructions field where customers can put in their PO number. I also added a little blurb when they select the "PO Number" manual payment method that says "Customers paying with a purchase order must enter their PO number in the Cart page". I wish we could add the field at checkout like our old site, but I don't think you can mess with the payments page too much. When the order comes through, it appears in the upper right corner of the order page. We're going live with our Shopify site next week, so we'll see how this goes.
