Want to add a WooCommerce request a quote feature to your store? In this post, we’ll show you step-by-step how to set everything up.
Adding a WooCommerce request a quote option to your online store enables a form or button (or both) for customers to ask for pricing on certain items. Depending on the plugin that you use, you can sometimes allow shoppers to quote their own price. But primarily, the WooCommerce request a quote feature is for them to ping your company so that you can call or email the potential customers with the cost information.
This functionality comes in handy for B2B operations and when selling custom products since it gives you time to put together a pricing analysis based on the customer.
Furthermore, B2C online stores can utilize a request a quote tool to give customers more freedom to group together products and see what you may be willing to charge for them.
