Customer order notes to show in order status page

When customers purchase products from my store sometimes they will need to add notes to the order. I see them in my Orders page on Shopify Admin however they can not. I want to know if there is a way I can get this to show on the Customers Order Status Page if the customer can't remember what they have written.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Candice!

Ana here, from the Shopify guru team. Here's the code you will need to add to the "Additional scripts" content box in Settings -> Checkout, within the "Order processing" section:

<script>
{% if order.note != blank %}
   Shopify.Checkout.OrderStatus.addContentBox(
     '<h2>Order notes</h2>',
     '<p>{{ order.note }} </p>'
    )
{% endif %}
</script>

This will display an "Order notes" section on their order status page, if your customer has included a note. See this screenshot for an example:  

If they haven't included a note on their order, then no "Order notes" section will appear.

Hope that helps! :)

Ana

Once I add the script to the Checkout, can "order notes" be included in emails to customers or dropshippers?

This is very helpful!

Is there any way to include html in the body of the notes and get them to render on the order status page? I tried using the additional script and the html comes over on the status page as plain text. Thanks!
