    I don't think so. Organelles are generally structures inside the cell.

    But then comes the complication that we have internal receptors. So maybe this type could be regarded as such.

    So generally, I'd say no. But I'm uncertain with regards to the classification if internal receptors.

    Could I see examples? Preferably if you know which is which? I'll find it easier to explain that way.

    No, a receptor isn't an organelle. Organelles are membrane-bound units within the cell that carry out a function. A receptor is just a protein, sometimes found on the surface of the cell, sometimes on the surface of an organelle. They sit in membranes.

    nah bro.

    receptors i.e glycoproteins, glycolipids are often found on the plasma membrane (phospholipid bilayer) of cells

    organelles on the other hand, are structures found within the cells i.e ribosomes, golgi apparatus, smooth endoplasmic reticulum etc.

    hope that helps
