The complete solution to empower your customers to ask for a custom quote for the products they are interested in.

Many shopkeepers sell goods or services for which a label with price is not enough.

For off-the-shelf or customized items, for which big quantities of the same product might be purchased, a buyer usually prefers to get in touch with the supplier to negotiate an ad hoc price solution. A quote request is a channel that allows that kind of negotiation, that otherwise is difficult to achieve in online shops.

One of the main issues of online shopping, that is, communicating and negotiating with potential customers, might be solved by simply using a quote request form.

It is also possible to hide the “Add to cart” buttons to encourage customers to get in touch with the suppliers: in this way you can hide prices for wholesale or retailers and provide competitive custom prices based on their needs. It is right here that the very negotiation occurs.

Choose WHERE to show the “Add to quote” button

You can choose to activate the “Add to quote button” on all your product pages or on specific products, categories or tags only. 

Choose WHO will see the “Add to quote” button

Choose whether to show the “Add to quote” button to all your users or hide it to guest users (those who haven’t registered yet or who haven’t logged in). You can also enable the quote request option only for certain user roles of your choice.

Customize the button colors and texts

Choose whether to show a text link or a proper button and set up every detail related to the style, like the text, the position, or the colors, to make sure it totally suits your shop layout.

Hide the product price and the “Add to cart” buttons

Hide the price from all your products together with the Cart button if you want to enable the quote request option on the entire shop and make sure your users contact you to know about the product price. Just two clicks to transform your e-commerce store into a product catalog!

Let users monitor their list of products through the built-in widgets

Use the widget in the header or sidebar so your users can always keep an eye on them and quickly access their list of products.

Customize the quote request page

Set up the layout for your quote request page (show the form on the right or the bottom) and choose which details to show in the list of products. Use the shortcode on a page that you can customize as you wish, for example, with a custom image in the header or with some additional text content.

Use and customize the built-in form



Use a form created with Gravity Forms, Contact Form 7, WP Forms or Ninja Forms


Monitor quote requests from the table available and download them as a CSV file

You can track all quote requests and their different status. From the same page, you will also be able to filter requests by status, customer, or date and download information as a CSV file.

Create a quote manually and send it to the customer who will not have to fill out the form


Enable the automatic quote option to send out the default product prices


Choose whether to enable the automatic generation of orders with the status “New quote request” for all requests submitted


Generate, send and monitor your quotes right from the admin panel

From the backend you can fully monitor and manage the entire quotation process: quote requests are saved in the Orders list and to send the quote you just have to open the order, set up some options and click on the button to send it. It’s just a matter of a few seconds and a few clicks.

Edit the product prices and add shipping fees, extra costs or coupon codes to the quote

Before sending the quote, you can edit the product prices (by lowering them a bit to offer a discount), add shipping fees or some extra cost and apply a discount code to the quote (for example a 10% off for a customer who regularly buys from you or who is making the first order).

Leverage the urgency principle and set up a deadline for the quote

Create a tailor-made offer that your user cannot reject and leverage the scarcity and urgency principles by setting an expiration date for the quote. If the discounted price is only available for a limited time, the customer will be more likely to accept it and finalize the purchase as soon as possible so as to not miss out on it.

Generate a PDF version of the quote that will be both attached to the email and available for download in My Account area

Enable the generation of a PDF copy of the quote and choose to attach it to the quote email and if making it available for download in My Account area.

Customize the details and design of the PDF quote

Upload your site logo and add some custom texts to personalize the PDF quote based on your needs.

Allow customers to monitor their quote requests right from My Account page

Thanks to the “Quotes” section in My Account page, users will be able to monitor the status of their quote requests, download the PDF version of the quote (if enabled) and view the details of every quote request.

Enable the option to “Accept | Reject” the quote

Let your customers accept or reject the quote offer by simply clicking on the link in the email or in the PDF quote.

If the quote is accepted, redirect the user right to the checkout page

Once the quote is accepted, the customer will be redirected to the checkout page to finalize the purchase at the agreed price.

Enable the “Ask for a quote” button on the checkout page

Enable this option to convert your customer’s cart into a quote request.
