Custom Text Field to Buy Button

New Member

Hello all,

I'm using Shopify's buy button to handle the ecommerce on my store. Is there a way to add a custom text field to my buy button so customers can add whatever text they'd like when they place their order?

Keep in mind this means I do not have an online store, so a lot of the apps out there aren't compatible with my "store".

I'm willing to work with any code or install any app out there that can do this.

From your Shopify admin, go to Buy Button.

Click Create a Buy Button. Click Product Buy Button.

Select the product from your catalog or use the search to find a product. Click Select. Optional: customize the Buy Button.

If your product has variants, then select All variants or select the variant that you want to include. Choose a layout style and the action that happens when a customer clicks the button.

You can also customize the button's appearance. By default the checkout behavior opens a new window but you can choose to open the checkout in the same browser tab as your website. Click Advanced settings > Redirect in the same tab upsers.

Click Next. Click Copy code. Open the HTML editor for the webpage where you want to display the Buy Button. Refer to Adding Buy Button code to HTML. Paste the code within the HTML where you want the Buy Button to appear, and then save your changes.

Hello Martine1

That allows me to create a buy button, but I need some way for users to type in a text field while they are at checkout. Is this functionality possible on Shopify?

I'm looking for the same feature. It's unbelievable that Shopify doesn't allow this by default. 

Did anyone find any viable solution to this?
