Thanks to YITH WooCommerce Request a Quote you can offer users the chance to ask for a quote for one or more products in your shop. Once the request is received, you can process your offer and send it via email. Users can accept the offer and will be automatically redirected to the cart where they will find the exact agreed price.
The integration with YITH Sequential Order Number allows you to enable a sequential number system also for your quote requests.
Once installed and activated the premium version of both plugins, enable the Quote Module in YITH > Sequential Order Number > Modules.
You will be able now to set up the numeration for your quotes.
- Numeration starting from: enter the number for the first quote here, the following ones will automatically be assigned.
- Quote prefix: enter a prefix to make sure that you can immediately spot a quote request out of all orders of your shop. You can also make this dynamic using the placeholders listed below. Leave it empty if you don’t want any.
- Quote suffix: enter here a suffix that you want to attach to all your quote numbers. You can also make this dynamic using the placeholders listed below. Leave it empty if you don’t want any.
- [D] Day without leading zeros
- [DD] Day with leading zeros
- [M] Month without leading zeros
- [MM] Month with leading zeros
- [YY] two-digit year
- [YYYY] Full year
- [h] 24-hour format of an hour without leading zeros
- [hh] 24-hour format of an hour with leading zeros
- [m] Minutes with leading zeros
- [s] Seconds, with leading zeros
This is an example:
For more information about YITH Request a Quote, please, refer to the plugin official documentation.
If you want that the orders at no cost follow a different numeration, activate the “Use different numeration for free orders” module.
The Set your free order type option make you set the requisites for the order to be considered “free” from the plugin and, therefore, to follow the set numeration for the free orders.
If you choose the Order Total option, all the orders with a final total amount equal to zero will be considered as “free”; for example, when the purchase is completed using a coupon with the same value of the amount.
On the other hand, the Products in order option will consider “free” only those orders in which each product has no cost at all.
Order prefix/Order suffix options let you use a prefix/suffix in the order IDs. Numeration will remain progressive, but each ID will have the indicated text before/after.
Let’s assume to set “YIT-SX” as prefix and “-YIT-DX” as suffix: the ID will be like in the following image.
Here you will find a list of the available placeholders to use in the prefix or suffix:
[D] Day without leading zeros
[DD] Day with leading zeros
[M] Month without leading zeros
[MM] Month with leading zeros
[YY] two-digit year
[YYYY] Full year
[h] 24-hour format of an hour without leading zeros
[hh] 24-hour format of an hour with leading zeros
[m] Minutes with leading zeros
[s] Seconds, with leading zeros
In every module, you will find the option Numeration starting from to set the starting ID for the order numbers of your shop.
The first order will be created with the indicated ID, increasing the following orders sequentially.
Here you can find an example.
As you can see in the image, the ID of the highlighted order is “1”, on the contrary of the previous orders that were following the classic numeration of WooCommerce. Therefore, the ID of the next order will be “2”.
Note: for each new order, the ID value will increase progressively and so the “Numeration starting from” option will be updated with it.
By the way, this value can be modified freely: the order numeration will start immediately from the new value.
The plugin has three modules available – Base, Free orders, and Quote – that can be managed separately.
By activating the modules, you will be able to use a different numeration also for your free orders and quotes.
Please note: the Quote module is available only if the premium version of YITH WooCommerce Request a Quote has been activated.
