As you might know, the TigrenPWA theme supports both Magento’s rich e-commerce features as well as provides a wide range of advanced ones such as One-step checkout, Improved layered navigation, Shop by brand, etc. Among these, Email Quote – a favorite function of many Magento stores, has been added recently into the theme. In this post, let’s find out how it works and benefits e-commerce businesses.
It’s worth noting that the Email Quote features in Tigren’s Magento 2 PWA theme is powered by MageComp’s Email Quote extensions (basic and pro versions). We developed custom APIs to make these modules compatible with Magento 2 Progressive Web App as well as the TigrenPWA theme.
Why Is Email Quote Important To Magento Stores?
Without a doubt, the needs of customers are varied. If you can only provide the same product catalogs with fixed prices for all store visitors, it’s likely that you are losing a number of potential buyers.
More specifically, provided that one of your customers wanted to buy a product with much larger quantities than usual. It’s quite unreasonable for him to pay the same unit price as the others. In this case, you might consider giving him a bulk purchase discount but how to do that?
Another assumption is that your shopper somehow would like to customize your products but there was no extra service available on your website. For instance, you were selling necklaces and your buyer wanted to engrave his name on the selected product. In this case, you might think about adding an extra fee on the original price for engraving, but again, how to do that?
For all the situations above, the Email Quote function is a perfect solution!
In short, it allows Magento store owners to get quote requests that can be of any kind – from the customers as well as to prepare custom quotations to meet those special requests. Notably, Magento by default does not support this function.
How It Works
- For the customers (on the frontend):
After adding the product(s) with specific options and quantity as usual to the cart, the purchasers can add their particular needs into a form on the shopping cart page (Send Email Quote). In that form, they are required to enter their name, email, phone number, and comments (e.g.: ask for a bargain or an extra service).
Moreover, the customers can review and check the statuses of their quote requests in their My Account.
- For the admin (on the backend):
Once a quote request is created, the admin will instantly receive a notification email and then be able to handle that request on Magento backend.
To be more detailed, the admin can build a custom quote with the required option/ price/ discount and send it to the target customer via email. This quote can be sent one time only or several times.
Another interesting feature is that the admin can follow email click statuses to check whether the buyer opens the quote or not.
What is more, there is a checkout button on the bottom of the quote email. Thanks to that, the customers can immediately check out once they know that their requests are approved.
- Allow customers to send their cart (with a comment) to get a custom quote
- Allow customers to manage their sent quotes in their account management
- Provide checkout option in the quote email for the customers
- Let admin create & resend quotes from the backend
- Let admin check click statuses of quote emails
