I am pretty sure you cant set the order page up to include an ‘order notes’ box. I don’t see why this couldn’t be adopted for including personalised messages on every order. Or is there another piece of functionality you need with this?

Hi Dave, did you mean ‘pretty sure you can’??

Ebay at the checkout offers a ‘Message’ button/tab for the user. Basically a facility to add a note to advise seller, a comment/delivery info etc that the buyer wishes to add or make visible to the seller. Amazon does offer the facility for a buyer to add a personal gift card message at their checkout stage. Gift wrapping option is available too. Amazon we sell a lot with.

I wanted to be sure even if it meant it required a little development money that this would be do-able for us. Currently we print each order direct to a pre printed order sheet with a tear off gift card at the bottom of the A4 sheet.

Cheers, Mark.

Howdy Mark,

Yep Magento does support this, you can do at either at product level on your website with an option/text box that the customer can fill out or in the checkout.

The checkout option I documented quite some time ago here http://lastdropofink.co.uk/too…..r-magento/
