If quotes are enabled, the My Quotes section of the account dashboard lists all quotes submitted by the customer. Depending on their permissions, only buyers who make purchases on behalf of a company can submit requests to negotiate the price of a purchase.
The buyer begins the process by submitting a request for a quote from the shopping cart. Email is exchanged between the buyer and seller during the negotiation process. For the buyer, the My Quotes page is the focal point for all communication between buyer and seller during the negotiation process. A buyer who accepts the negotiated price offered by the seller can proceed directly to checkout from the quote. Additional discounts cannot be added to the negotiated quote.
To view a quote:
Log in to your account.
In the panel on the left, choose My Quotes.
Find the quote in the list. Then in the Action column, click View.
To print a quote:
In the open quote to the right of the Items Quoted section, click Print.
Verify the Destination as either a printer or PDF.
To cancel a quote request:
In the open quote just above the Items Quoted section, click Close quote.
The request is canceled, and the quote status changes to “Closed”. The closed quote remains in your list of quotes, and continues to be listed in the Quotes grid from the Admin.
To remove the canceled quote from your list of quotes, click Delete. Then when prompted to confirm, tap OK.
The closed quote is removed from your list of quotes. However, it continues to be listed in the Admin Quotes grid, with the “Closed” status.
