How to add "Order Notes" section to cart page - Minimal theme

6 0 6

Hi everyone,


I'm designing a store and I can't find where to add a 'Order Notes' section on the View Cart or Checkout pages. The instructions in the help centre don't seem to apply to the Minimal theme. Hopefully someone is able to help me?

Shop URL is and the password is pruvus

Something like this but not specifically for delivery instructions. I want just a regular box for customers to type requests.


Going to sleep as it's 2am so I won't be able to reply until the morning.


Many thanks,

Hi Frank!

Thanks for sharing your question here. 

You can enable cart notes from your theme editor by visiting Online store > Themes > Customize and selecting Cart from the drop-down menu. In the left-hand editing panel you should see the option to select Cart page, then check Enable order notes. Let me know if you're seeing that option on your end!


Within your theme editor, you can add an item to your cart then see the option to add "Special instructions for seller" appear.

You're welcome to keep this default text as it is, or visit your language editor to customize it. If you're curious about this option, you can head back to your admin, then visit Online store > Themes > Actions > Edit languages, select your Cart section, and edit this field:  


Entirely up to you! Please don't hesitate to let me know if you run into any questions along the way.
