    Love this plugin. I was working with a freelancer to add some notes, but they were showing up in the page source, and he couldn’t figure out how to keep that from happening. This plugin does it perfectly! Plus great & responsive support!!

    Worked with Tom on this as it’s a relatively new plugin. Client needed a way to keep notes (when purchased, amount, etc.) on the backend of his site. Internal Product Notes for WooCommerce worked perfectly and I highly recommend it.

  1. I also bought this plugin so that on the invoice, the PRIVATE note is listed and it does not work at all. Not even in email as indicated.

    1. So ????

    2. That’s OK !!!!! YEAH

  2. I purchased the plugin, and was going to ask for a refund, because I really need the product note to show up with the product on the order summary page for the admin/shopadmin (not customer). For example, it needs to show up where the metadata or attributes or add-ons show up, but there is nothing. Is there something I can add to functions.php or something else? If we can get this, then no refund required. Thank you!

    1. If anyone else has a similar question, this option was added in plugin v2.0.0. It’s the “Admin orders” checkbox in the plugin’s “Backend Options” section.

  3. Hi Tom, I do have a new idea!

    It would be great if you could add the notes, and make them editable, under “quick edit”.

    Like when you click on Products in the admin, and each product has Edit, Quick Edit, Trash, View, and Duplicate.

    Is that something you can add?

    1. Hi Jill,

      Thank you for the idea. “Bulk” and “quick” edit options added to the plugin in v1.3.1.

    2. Wow! You are absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for adding my request.

    3. Sure, happy to help 🙂

  4. HI, I am wondering if you can search your notes in the product admin? Also, just to be sure, they won’t show up in the page source, will they? AND…if I export my products, will the notes export with them?


    1. Hi Jill,

      No, the notes won’t show up in the page source.

      As for exporting and admin searching – we’ve just released new plugin v1.3.0, where I’ve added both options.

      Hope that clears it up. Please let me know if you have any more questions and/or ideas.

    2. Wow thanks Tom! I bought and it looks great.

    3. Hi Jill,

      Happy to hear you like it, and thank you for the purchase!

  5. Nice product. Many thanks!

    Just as a feature suggestion it would be great if these notes could be included on the admin version of the woocommerce emails.

    If you add that please let me know as it would be very useful.

    1. Hi Gary,

      Thank you.

      We’ve just released new plugin v1.2.0. After the update, you will find new “Admin emails” option in plugin’s settings (in “WooCommerce > Settings > Internal Product Notes”).

      Please let me know if something is not working correctly or if you have any other ideas for the plugin. And if you like the plugin, please consider leaving me a rating.
