Configure Request a Quote Store

SmithCart > How To

Introduction

Some or all of your products may not be for immediate sale, or you may require additional qualification before an order can be placed. In this case you may want to prevent the user from purchasing the product but still collect all the order information so you can follow up to complete the sale. SmithCart supports the ability to configure a Request a Quote order process at either the store or Product level. This option will skip the payment screen where the user enters their credit card info. This feature is useful if your site is “Request a Quote” only or if your business only sells to resellers that require prior approval before buying your products.

 


 

Request a Quote Setup

The Request a Quote order process is enabled when the “Hide Price” setting is enabled. When hide price is checked the “Price” field is hidden and replaced with “Request a Quote” throughout the cart product catalog and checkout.

This section will describe how to enable Request a Quote.

Enabling Request a Quote at the store level will enable every product in your store to be a "Resquest a Quote" Product.
