NP Quote Request WooCommerce: How to save products as quote items in bulk.

You can make products to be quote items in bulk in a couple of ways. In the WooCommerce->settings->RFQ-Toolkit general setting. Under MISC options ( see screenshots below).

  1. If you want to just make everything RFQ enabled, then use option 1 and select to enable all products. This would enable “All” the products which is probably not what you want.
  2. You can select by category.
    1. Select the categories for the products you want enabled in option 3.
    2. Select option 2 and save settings.
    3. All the existing products in the categories you selected, will be activated. Any new product in those categories will also be activated automatically.
    4. You can manually in-activate for individual products within those categories.

If your products categories are not setup to do this easily. Create a new category, “Quote” for example, apply that categories to all the products you want to activate. Then use option b and c above on that category. You can read here how to apply a category to products in bulk.

Use quote requests as an opportunity for marketing

A price quote sent to your customer is a great opportunity is an often neglected marketing opportunity. Customer has already shown interest in the product / service by inquiring. You can provide more product information, links to your social media sites, surveys for feedback and in general tell the customer about the benefits of doing business with you. Customer has already given you a clue by showing interest in a particular product. You can customize the marketing content to give relevant information for that product. RFQ-Toolkit can help you automate the process.

You can design your marketing content at the product category level or product level using the familiar WordPress HTML editor. You can access the editor by either editing a WooCommerce product category or the product’s advanced setup tab. Your email to the customer will include your content marketing material along with your proposal. Don’t miss on the opportunity to inform your customers when they inquire about your products.
