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.
YITH WooCommerce Request a Quote it has been explicitly conceived to grant a communication channel between customers and suppliers, going beyond those traditional — and sometimes restrictive — e-commerce platforms where you can show a custom price for a single product only, no way to quote multiple products at the same time.
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.
Our plugin allows displaying an “Add to Quote” button or link on your product pages. Customers can add products to a list, fill the form and then submit a request for a custom quote.
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. You can use the built-in exclusion list to set where to show or, the other way round, where to hide the quote button and show it only on product pages or also in the WooCommerce shortcodes (like the Shop page etc.). If you want to, you can activate (or deactivate) the quote option only on out-of-stock products: the plugin is so versatile and it offers almost unlimited configuration options.
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
The plugin includes a default form where you can add or remove fields, you can sort them and customize the texts. You can also enable the auto-complete option, that will automatically fill the form with their saved details, if the user is logged in, and with the optional reCaptcha as well. But the most interesting thing is that the information added by the user will automatically be linked to WooCommerce fields and embedded in the quote and in the related order.
Use a form created with Gravity Forms, Contact Form 7, WP Forms or Ninja Forms
If you don't want to use the default form, the plugin grants compatibility with different plugins that allow creating and managing forms like Gravity Forms, Contact Form 7, WP Forms, or Ninja Forms.
Monitor quote requests from the table available in the plugin and download them as a CSV file
Thanks to the table included in the plugin version 3.1, 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
A customer contacts you by phone or comes to your office and asks for a price estimate? With this plugin, you can create a quote manually and send it to your customer, sparing them so the trouble and time of doing that on their own.
Enable the automatic quote option to send out the default product prices
The plugin allows you to create tailor-made quotes. But you can also enable automatic quotes so whenever a customer sends a request, the quote is automatically sent out showing the default prices of your products (the prices you set in your shop and that are hidden by the option “Hide prices”). You can enable this option with just one click and the plugin will do all the work for you.
Choose whether to enable the automatic generation of orders with the status “New quote request” for all requests submitted
The major strength of this plugin is the management of quote requests: you can choose whether to manage them manually or, what we really recommend, to enable the automatic generation of the order. In this way, all quote requests will be saved in the Orders panel with a custom status “New quote request”. You will be able to send your quote right from the Orders page and, if the customer accepts the quote and pays, the order status will automatically update. Clear, simple and quick.
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.

Here you can find some frequently asked questions about this plugin. If you can't find a reply to your doubts, ask a question: we will reply in a very short time
Is there a way to prevent sales from being added to the Woocommerce analytics before payment is made?
Yes, you can do it by excluding Request a Quote statuses from Analytics > Settings.
I use the “convert checkout into a quote” feature, but how can I let customers upload a file?
You can combine YITH Quote plugin with YITH Uploads and your customers will be able to upload files for products and orders. The files attached will show up in the quote request order in the backend and can be edited by customers if they accept the quote during the checkout and on My Account page (if enabled).
Can this plugin integrate with CRM or autoresponders?
Unfortunately, the plugin doesn’t include this feature at the moment, but you can set automatic quotes. Read more about the available settings here.
Does the plugin include an option to create its own Quote Number for potential orders, thereby not breaking the required Sequential Order Number chain for actual orders?
The plugin doesn’t use its own number prefix by default, but if used with YITH WooCommerce Sequential Order Number, you can have a custom numbering for quotes and normal orders. You can read more about this integration here.
Can I combine the plugin with automatic quantity-based discounts?
No, the product price in the quote request is the regular price. The plugin is not compatible with any plugin that calculates discounts dynamically in the cart, as the quote request is just a list of products. Yet, you can edit the product prices manually from the quote details.
Is it possible to allow customers to create multiple quotes lists?
Customers can only create one list and ask for a price estimate at a time. Yet, they can send as many quote requests as they wish.
Does the plugin include any kind of report?
No, unfortunately the plugin does not provide any reports.
Is it possible to add a time frame within which the customer has to finalise the purchase? Like clicking on 1 of 3 available options: 20 mins, 30 mins or 60 mins.
Unfortunately, this specific feature in minutes is not supported, but you can set an expiration date for the quote, after which the quote (and its custom conditions offered) is no longer available. You can read more about the quote expiration settings here.
Can we add multiple shipping costs in the quote?
With the plugin the admin or shop manager can add or multiple shipping fees in a quote manually as you can see here.
Is there a shortcode to add the "Add to quote" button in a custom position inside the single product page?
Yes, you can use the shortcode as explained on this page.
Is it possible to show products images & a text/explanation area for each product within the quote?
It is possible to show the product thumbnail in the quote list, but unfortunately it is not possible to show a custom box for each item in the quote list. You can show a shared box in the quote form, though.
Is it possible to show a popup after clicking on the Add to Quote button?
Yes, it is possible by using the plugin in combination with YITH WooCommerce Added to Cart Popup: with this integration, all the items added to the quote list will show in a popup from where users can directly send a request.
Can my customer also send a file with his request? We print shirts and the customer must also have the opportunity to send his print design. Is that possible?
You can either include an upload field in the quote request field using the built-in advanced form or use the plugin in combination with the premium version of YITH Product Add-ons which allows configuring additional options for your products: users can select the options available and add files on the product page like in this sample product. The add-ons selected will show up in the quote request.
We want the minimum quantity of products in the quote set to 4. Is it possible to do this with your plugin?
Yes, the plugin has been integrated with our marketplace plugin, YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor, so every vendor will receive a quote request with his/her products, whereas global administrators will receive the request only for products not linked to any vendor.
Does This plugin work well with grouped products?
Yes, the plugin works with grouped products too. Every product selected from the group will be added to the quote list as an individual item.
Can we convert a quote to an invoice with a single click if we also have the premium plugin?
No, but you can convert the quote into an order that the customer can regularly pay for. The plugin does not generate a payment invoice, but it includes a PDF file too.
If you need to generate an invoice after the payment is completed, you can consider combining another plugin, YITH WooCommerce PDF Invoice and an invoice will automatically be generated when the order goes to 'Completed' status.
Is it possible to create quotes (email and PDF) in French and configure the backend Request a Quote user interface to French?
Yes, the plugin can be translated using the language files provided, or alternatively, if you want to have a multi-language site, you can use it with WPML plugin, as it is fully supported!
Can we convert a quote into a WooCommerce order from the backend?
Yes, the quote is an order with a specific status. So, to transform the quote into an order, you can simply change the status from 'New quote request' to 'Completed' or any other status of the order that you prefer, as for any order in WooCommerce.
Does it use the same payment processors that I set up in WooCommerce?
Yes, when the customer accepts the quote, he/she can pay and complete the order on the standard checkout page and use any payment gateway available in your WooCommerce installation, but you can also restrict the available payment methods.
Are variable products and quantity supported?
Yes, both in the free and premium version.
Is there an option to only show Request a Quote for specific products and hide the price and Buy Now button?
YITH Request a Quote allows you to hide the price and Add to cart button on ALL your products. Yet, if you want to limit these features to some selected products only, you can combine it with YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode.
Does the plugin integrate with WooCommerce billing and shipping addresses at the Quote request stage?
Yes, if you use the default form. With the default form, you can create a form with fields that are linked to the billing and shipping WooCommerce field. Moreover, you can activate the autocomplete option that lets you populate all the fields if the customer is logged in.
