I'm managing a shop for a goldsmith, and we need to give the customers the option to specify a text to be engraved in the product.

What's the best way to accomplish this?

Other webshop components have a message field at checkout for the customer to send the shop a message related to their purchase, but I haven't been able to find this option in HikaShop.

You can add that by creating a custom field of the type textarea and of the table "order" via the menu Display>Custom fields in the Business edition of HikaShop.
You can even have the field for each product on the product page above the add to cart button by creating a custom field of the table "item" and thus handle multiple products purchases.

Thanks a lot for amazigly quick response! :)

We're using the Essential version (will probably upgrade to Business at some point). Any way we can accomplish this in Essential?

Well, you can always add the html field in one of the checkout views and handle the saving yourself with a HikaShop plugin but it's a lot of hassle compared to the custom fields solution and if you're not a developer it will be more expensive to have it done for you by a developer than purchasing the upgrade to the Business edition.
One thing to can do is to create a custom address field. The user will see it in the registration form and when editing his addresses and you will be able to see it in the order details. But it's less nice than a custom order/item fields which are really made to do what you want.

Ok, I see. Thanks again for quick response, Nicolas. I appreciate it! :)

This function is not a high level priority, so we'll just use the contact form for now. We'll probably upgrade somewhere down the road. :)

Hey Nicolas...

Long time after this post was originated. I have followed these instructions. excellent outcome. Is it possible to limit this option to a variation?

meaning I have the following options in the shop
1. Book only
2. Autographed by the author
3. Personalised message from the author

I would like it to have this "custom field" to only show in the checkout if the variation No 3 was chosen.

Would that be possible? it's pointless being there with the other two options.

Cheers

I saw it as necessarily related to the original post.

Hi,

It's not possible yet in HikaShop to restrict custom fields based on variants, only main products.
So the only "simple" (by that I mean without coding involved) solution would be separate your variants into three different products. You could for example have the products linked together as related products to be able to choose between the different versions of the product.
