How can we improve WooCommerce?

Use Woocommerce as a quote only program.

Instead of add to cart, I would like to hide all prices and change the buttons to say add to quote. People will submit request for quotes and then in the backend we can update the prices for the specific customer and then send them a notice that the quote is complete. This is completely different from quote forms since I want all items to be in the cart but the checkout will submit quote, not go to payment page.

    This idea has been around for quite a while now. Any news?

    Imho is't very strange that an eCommerce solution doesn't offer the possibility to generate quotes by default. The a3rev plugin is not an option for small business owners. I don't need 2 sites and in no way am I going to pay $ 97 for a year of support. Perhaps for a lifetime subscription, this amount would be fair. Due to the high price, I've already seen a lot of custom work (precious development time) in order to get this fixed. So why is this functionality still not implemented by default?

    An even better solution would be to specify the option for quote per product.
    Two checkboxes would suffice for this: 1: quote, 2: disable ordering.

    It would be great if the customer could shop, then submit the order - but then the admin would create a "Final Invoice" with any discounts and shipping cost. We have international orders where it is impossible to know the exact shipping cost until the item is packed.

    I would really like to see this ability in Woocommerce.

    - Ability to Add to Quote and then email it to the user and myself
    - Ability to then Order from that Quote
    - Ability to have some products Add to Quote only and others have both Add to Cart or Quote

    This is a vital feature that I see being requested a lot. Other ecommerce platforms have it. Even free platforms have it (e.g. 1&1 My Website)

    I have done this using woocommerce override structure. Changing all the 'order' text to quote and remove all pricing.

    I uploaded the changed plugin and installation instructions to

    Please let me know what you think. There are a couple more changes to be made I am looking for the function that displays the body of the table for the products in the emails to remove the pricing column. I used css in the template editor to hide prices, and a couple buttons. hit me up on git hub if you have any questions.

    We run a Ready-Made and Custom-Made products shop. This kind of enhancement would be a great help for Custom-Made products, where pricing is based upon specifications submitted by a customer.

    Me too, this would be awesome.
    Also, the possibility to add a customer in the backend and create a quote form there and email it to the customer.

    We sell products from $ 1500 and up, so many times a customer is calling iso ordering in the webshop. In that case it would be ideal to add that customer to the backend and enter a quotation.
