Hi all, I'm working with the minimal theme and my store is mainly gifts. So I want my customers to be able to write a gift message at checkout. In my research it said that it's supposed to be enabled by default but I don't see it anywhere when I do a mock checkout. How do I do this?

Hey, Allison!

Stephanie here from Shopify :)

What you will want to activate is 'order notes'. You can activate order notes by heading to Online store > Themes > Customize theme. Click on the cart icon, so you can see the section for 'cart' appear on the left hand side. Once you see the cart section, the option to enable order notes will be there. 

You can change the language of the cart note box by going to the Language Editor (Online store > Themes > Actions > Edit Language). 

Here's our doc on enabling Order Notes for your reference - Click Here.

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our support! We're available 24/7.

Hi there,

I'm using MINIMAL theme in the UK, and can't find this option anywhere.  Please can you let me know how to let a customer add a gift message at checkout please?
