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 can be done by using one of the extensions available, just google "woocommerce quote".

        We would also love a feature like this. A lot of our business involves highly custom products.

        The ability to provide quotes/estimates to customers would be a great addition to WooCommerce. We have a similar situation to Aleks V where customers call in or visit our location and have to get an estimate that requires approval from another person. Being able to have this type of item in with orders would make the sales cycle for us much more efficient.

        Woo-RFQ is an easy to configure plugin that turns your WooCommerce shopping cart into a Request for Quote system.

        Our use case: We sell a lot of B2B products. Very often the visitor would request a quote as a PDF which he would give to his supervisor to sign off. Currently we do this kind of quote manually. We imagine following workflow: On the cart page the visitor can click on a quote button which requests a quote for all cart items. If he is just a guest he also would need to enter his email address. We then receive the quote in WooCommerce and add some data (discount, etc.) to the quote and send the quote back to the email address with two links (accept/deny) and a PDF of the quote attached. If the quote gets accepted it would trigger a normal WooCommerce cart checkout with all items.

        I would like to reach the developers of "Request a Quote" to ask them if they solve my problem. Anyone knows the email to the developers?

        ​I want to use woocommerce for a web-shop that is not selling anything:
        That means I will have no price on the merchandise. USD 0 ! < That is a challenge as I understand.
        BUT, very important: I want to have all the options for cart, collecting Items, tick them out, sending an order etc.etc, exept the payment.

        Think that the mercandise is brosjures and magazines: The website that presents these magazines/publication ownes them all. They will be given away for free. The only thing you as a customer has to do is to ask for them / order them. Cost you nothing.

        I wish the routine should be like this:
        The "customer" comes to the shop. He finds his interesting area f.example "Outdoor life". Then he is narrowing his area to f.ex. "Hunting" - maybe even more selection "rifles" >> Everything like a normal webshop(?)
        His collecion is displayed with a picture and a short introduction. ON THAT introduction there are at least 3 buttons: 1. Order this - 2. my wishlist - 3. see more information -- plus maybe something else

        Love this idea - hopefully it gets integrated soon. Currently seeking 3rd party solutions because we want to launch our new site with this feature.

        Hello!!!

        google for Woocommerce - Request a Quote Plugin or

        Woocommerce - Request a Quote

        then go to style css

        .stock {
        display:none;
        }

        glad to see this is under review... much desired and useful feature and would prefer not to use 3rd party plugins...

        I did what anonymous (oscar) said below...

        >>maybe have a look at propoza.com they offer the RFQ functionality that works seamless with Woo. Just dowloaded it for free and it serves me well! hope it works,
        cheers, oscar

        Propoza, although limited in its capabilities at the moment [Feb 2015] (they are moving into beta), it looks really great and is shaping up to be a fantastic solution. It acts as a 3rd party dashboard to manage (receive, send, approve, decline) quotes for items for a variety of platforms, but I can only speak to the WooCommerce one.

        They are looking for feedback (really appreciated my suggestions) and would likely respond well to repeated requests for added functionality. I've asked that they add, above all else, the capability to customize the request form (currently only takes name/email/company), as well as add the "Request" button elsewhere (currently only clickable from the cart) and let us change the button text.

        Big bump.

        I've needed this quite often (and only achieved it with much hacking).

        In one case it's for the customer to select photos into a collection, then get a quote. The ability to turn off many of the Commerce features of Woo would make this quite elegant, maybe in conjunction with the new WooCommerce Photography extension.

        This is so typical Woo... customer support is absolutely terrible. It´s been a year and not even an official reaction. Missed opportunity!
