From version 4, clients cannot submit prices! Why?
Starting with version 4, the customers are not able to submit prices, only messages, where of course they can include their ideas, suggestions and expectations. This is based on client feedback we received in recent years, as in lot of cases, the quoters submitted totally unacceptable, unreal and often completely ridiculous amounts, what if corrected and formed by shop owner as he saw more fit and real, were all rejected, and the quoters never became customers. The owner still has this option, what the client accepts or rejects.
What is the difference between the offer and the price?
The offer is nothing more than the word itself really means, having the price and comment reflecting it, complementing each other. The difference between the two is best illustrated by an example: if the offer would be "Ten percent reduction", and the normal price of the product is 100 units, the recommended price submitted by you would be 90 units. Furthermore, if the offer is "Free shipping over 100", the price remains 100 units, and a message will explain the terms. It is also important to be noted, that the title of the offer, for clarity, is presented in a dedicated column in the list of submitted requests.
There is no quote button on homepage!
The quotation button does not appear on the Prestashop homepage, because this hook is inactive in "homefeatured" module. The rest of product lists are not affected, and the button is visible. If you want to display it, you need some basic FTP, HTML and programming skills, or contact us for assistance.
What happens if an offer is rejected?
If an offer is rejected, you can always submit a new one, but the older cannot be edited, so both you and client can properly see the history flow of how the final offer evolved.
Is it possible to have a higher than original price after bargain?
The short answer is yes. This occures when the shop owners offer includes shipping or packaging, or in some rare cases - if client did not know original price - the bargained price can go above original. However, it is up to owner on how to deal with the checkout process, as this on client side can be tricky, but possible of course!
Is it possible to allow some goods to be sold online and for other goods, the customer must ask for a quote to receive prices?
Yes. The module allows the button to appear only in the case of products that are not available for order. On the customize page, you must activate this option (filter by product status), and for any product for which you want to enable this feature, in your Back office, on it's edit page, you must uncheck the "Available for order" option.
