Request Quote Shopping Cart (11 posts)

    I am wondering if anyone could possibly help with a problem I am having.

    Our company is a rental company and unlike most e-commerce plugins we do not sell via our website.

    I have tried several plugins to no avail.

    I am looking for a shopping cart whereby our customers can add our products to their cart which is then submitted via e-mail to our company. The input fields however need to include details such as Dates required from and to for rental purposes and the ability to add custom fields.

    Does anyone know of a plugin which actually works with wordpress and yootheme?

    Here are the plugins I have tried that either do not work or cause errors and bugs to the website or are outdated / no longer supported.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I've been looking for the same type of plugin. Like you said, either the plugs I found either caused errors or were completely outdated.

    Check out this site: http://www.augustalinenservice.com/rental-products-quote-form/

    This is exactly what I am looking for, but it doesn't appear they used a plug-in, so I am still at a loss as far as what direction to go in. Is this type of quote shopping cart you are looking for as well?

    As far as I know, there is no solution on WP. We looked for it as we have multiple sites running WP.

    We ended up using seotoaster V1 for this at http://www.123alarme.fr. V1 has been very stable. Now, they have a V2 with a CMS and an Ecommerce version, both are free and open source as well and the ecommerce version has the quote system built-in. The next V2 Ecommerce that is due this month, has a yet an improved quote system, we will upgrade at that point.
    In a nutshell you can do automated display of quote. You can have on quote request form right on the product landing page (like we do), or you can have a quote request at the checkout along with other options such as credit card payment (we do this with a different site).
    You have also a management interface to tweak quotes, or built from scratch (we take orders over the phone as well), and then send emails and collect payment online. Their staff is very helpful.
    Hope this helps.

    Looks like the site at augustalinenservice is using a contact form to create the quote page. Probably doesn't have an quote management admin panel.

    I'm looking for a similar solution for a client of mine.

    I'm using Woocommerce and have come across this: http://a3rev.com/shop/woocommerce-quotes-and-orders/

    I'm going to give it a tray and see how it works.

    Has anybody got feedback on A3REV Quotes and Orders on how it performs.

    I cannot understand why WooCommerce adds the functionality of changing the 'Add to Cart' text to whatever you want. Also to disable checkout with banking so that the order can be processed from our end. Since we do not keep stock and many items must be customized before payment is finally done. Basically we need 'Add to Order' or "Add to quote" or "Place order" and then we process it later.

    @AntoniusFX, I've used it in one client project (still in development). The needs were specific: to allow site visitors to place items into a cart ready for quoting, to allow web admin to view quote request and adjust prices then send quote to the prospect. It meets those needs well.

    I've used a few A3REV plugins. Support is good and plugins are updated when required.

    I found this plugin really helpful:

    It's currently in use at:
    http://www.thenerdbird.com/calculate if you want to see it in action.

    Hope that helps.

    Update on Quotes and Orders from A3Rev.

    The plugin works but suffers from one flaw. The customer requests a quote (so far so good), an email is automatically sent to the customer to say the quote is being processed (still good), the site admin sends the quote to the customer and the customer receives the quote email without a propper breakdown of the prices for the indvidualy quoted items (not good). The quote subtotoal is correct but there are no itemized prices unless 'autoquote' mode is selected and in when autoquote is selected the system prices are shown to prospective customers, which renders the point of a quote plugin useless.
