Free version of YITH WooCommerce Request a Quote allows shop users to send quote requests by selecting one or more products (only simple products) of your shop. Administartor will receive the request by email, whereas the plugin doesn’t provide for any sending. Administrator must recover users’ email to reply to their request.
Below we analyze how a quote request is calculated and all the plugin features.
When the plugin is activated, button “Add to quote” is added in all the products detail page in the shop.
To display a link rather than button, and change default text “Add to quote”, use the specific options you find in “YIT Plugins -> Request a Quote”.
When a product has been added to the quote, after clicking on button “Add to quote”, it is added to the list that user can see in page “Request a Quote”.
This page is generated during plugin activation and includes shortcode “[yith_ywraq_request_quote]”, through which a chart of products selected by user will be displayed.
Any of the pages in your site can be the quote request page, important thing is that it has right inside the shortcode already mentioned. In this case the new page must be selected in “Request Quote Page”.
Right inside “Request a quote” page, there is a form user can make use of to send a quote request for the list of products. Form sending corresponds to email sending to shop administrator.
Email sent to administrator includes the list of products selected by customers, their data and an possible message, if added in the form.
The plugin doesn’t provide for any auto reply system. Administrator must send the quote to the email address received with the form.
To remove button “Add to cart” in all shop products you must activate option “Hide “Add to cart” button” that you find right inside plugin settings dashboard.
Default email template for quote requests can be customised for some fields from WooCommerce > Settings > Emails. After clicking on the tab Emails, click on the dedicated section “Email to request a quote”.
Template can be edited and you can do that using two tools directly available in option panel.
By clicking on “Copy file to theme” button, a copy of the file will be generated instantly within your theme (in the specified path) and you can change this file as you prefer. At the same time, by clicking on “Delete file”, you can delete this copy of the file. If you click on “View”, a textarea will be opened, which contains the file with the template: by so doing you edit the plugin original file directly from the panel.
