    WooCommerce Multi Vendor Request for Quote Plugin

    WooCommerce Multi Vendor Request for Quote Plugin: This plugin facilitates the admin to allow customers to request for quotations and these quote requests are sent to the sellers automatically. If the approval is disabled in the admin panel, the admin needs to notify the sellers manually. An RFQ form is to be filled in by the customers to raise a quotation request. The customers can even quote for product/services which do not belong to the store, by creating new RFQ products/services.

    WooCommerce Multi Vendor Request for Quote Plugin: Nowadays customers have been seen taking a keen interest in auctions and biddings. Where in a regular bidding a vendor with the highest bid wins, there’s another type of auction called Reverse Auction. In the Reverse Auction process, the vendor who has the lowest bid price would win the auction. The reason being, the customers will demand the lowest price here.

    Furthermore, WooCommerce Multi-Vendor Request for Quote plugin is a reverse auction process that instigates the admin of a site to allow customers to send quotation requests to the sellers of the site for products or services (for both existing and non-existing). Whichever seller’s bid customer finds appropriate will be approved therein. This way the business entrepreneurs can enhance the user’s engagement with the website and thus generate real sales.

    Please Note - This is a marketplace add-on, so you need to install Webkul's Multi Vendor Marketplace for WooCommerce plugin first.

    Why do we need E-Commerce RFQ?

    RFQ’s have always proved beneficial for the online marketplaces as nowadays the bidding process has barged the e-commerce industry positively. In an RFQ process, the customer will raise a quote for a bulk quantity of products/ services. The sellers of the marketplace will receive the quote request. It's completely the choice of the customer to choose a seller’s bid.

    This way customers can purchase a bulk quantity of products/ services in the feasible price, even the lowest bid. This cost-effective deal can help your customers save that extra penny for sure!
