Start your sales with a quote

The good news is that you can now enable "Request a quote" button in your products using the latest version of ShopFactory.
Have you ever wanted the option to allow customers to ask for quotes or sample products to get the conversation going? The new quoting app for ShopFactory allows you to add two new buttons to your product to make it easy for your customers to request quotes and sample products from you.
You can add the buttons individually for each products, or use the templates function to apply the option to as many products as you like. If you want to outperform your competitors on Google, SEO Tools will help you do this.
You can combine your quote button with a displayed product price or without a product price, if you prefer.
