Please Help - Add customise text field option to product pages

1 0 1

I am trying to add a custom text box to my product pages to enable customers to add personalisations to their orders. 
I have searched and followed videos and suggestions but every time I go to add coding as suggested I am unable to find the code where I need to input it, with nothing alike it either. 
Does the shop need to be published/live before I can add this? `

If anyone is able to help I'd be much appreciated. 
Thanks so much in advance!!

  1. Adding a custom text field to product pages is a common customization that many online stores use to allow customers to add personalizations to their orders. Here are the general steps to add a custom text field to product pages in Shopify:
  2. From your Shopify admin, go to "Online Store" > "Themes".
  3. Click on "Actions" > "Edit code" for the theme you want to customize.
  4. In the left sidebar, navigate to "Sections" and click on the section where you want to add the custom text field. This is usually the "product-template.liquid" section, but it can vary depending on your theme.
  5. Find the section of code where you want to add the custom text field. This will usually be in the area where the product options are displayed.
  6. Add the following code to create a custom text field:


<label for="personalization">Personalization:</label>
<input type="text" name="properties[Personalization]" id="personalization" maxlength="255">


Note that you can customize the label and ID attributes to match your preferences.


  • Regarding your question about whether your shop needs to be published/live before adding this customization, the answer is no. You can make changes to your store and customize it as much as you want before publishing it live. However, keep in mind that customers won't be able to see the changes until your store is published. You can use the "Preview" feature in the theme editor to see how the changes will look before publishing.

    Save your changes and preview your product page to see the custom text field in action.
