How to Add Line Item Properties to Order Notes

Infinite Options and Mesa

Mesa is an automation platform for retailers on Shopify. The popular app Infinite Options helps work around variant limits on Shopify. Sometimes you need those line item values to appear elsewhere. Mesa workflows are perfect for that sort of task.


Most third-party services rely on the Order Notes section of Shopify for extra details about an order. There hasn’t been a way to automatically add this type of important information to your store that these services can easily read; until now!

This tutorial will show how to add line-item properties from our product options app, Infinite Options, to your store’s Shopify Order Notes section in a few quick steps.

Start with our workflow template:

Step-by-step instructions:

1. On your Mesa dashboard, type in “Add Line Item Properties to Order Notes” in the Search apps and templates field and select the template from the drop-down menu. 


On the next page, click the green Start with this template button in the top right-hand corner.


2. This is an easy one; click the action in the workflow named Shopify Update Order. Double-check that your Shopify store credentials are assigned correctly in the drop-down. If not, you’ll need to Add New Credential and input your store’s “External Site Hostname,” “API Key,” and “Password.”

Under Configurationyou’ll also see that Mesa has already populated your Line Item Properties to Order Notes


Last Step: The most important

3. Once complete, scroll back up to the top of the page and click the Enable button in the top right-hand corner. 

Workflow Wrap Up

Now each new product has Line Item Properties added to your Order Notes section on Shopify. Every step in the workflow is 100% customizable. Change an event, add a step before/after or adjust the default settings. With Mesa, anything is possible!
