Let customers add a PO number at checkout

You can include a purchase order number field on your cart page so that your customers can enter their PO number just before checkout. This number will be stored as a cart attribute. We will then automatically pick up this data saved in the order and show it in the invoice.

To add this field to your cart page, please follow these steps below -

  1. Click on ‘Online Store’ -> ‘Themes’ in your Shopify dashboard.
  2. Next, click on ‘Actions’ -> ‘Edit Code’
  3. Search for and click on the file labelled cart.liquid or cart-template.liquid (depending on your theme file)
  4. Insert this snippet of code into this file in the section containing the ‘Update’ & ‘Checkout’ buttons -

    <!-- Invoice Falcon PO Number code START --> <input type="text" name="attributes[PO_Number]" placeholder="Purchase Order Number" value="{{ cart.attributes['PO_Number'] }}" /> <!-- Invoice Falcon PO Number code END -->
