Once you enable this “Make an offer” feature in your Multivendor App, the configuration will be done on Admin end, seller end as well as on customer end.
Let us understand this one by one.
Admin End Configuration
After enabling this feature called “Make an offer”, you will get three new menus in the Make an offer configuration section of the app i.e. General Configuration, Label Configuration, and Liquid File Configuration.
From the below-specified screenshot, you can have the direct way to configure general details about “Make an offer”.
Firstly, you need to allow settings to “Admin”, “Seller” or “Both” and select who will manage the offer requests of the customers.
Now, you need to choose where you want to show the details of the offer requests either on each product page (individually) or on the cart page.
Have a look:
NOTE:- If you disable the functionality of the automatic draft order, then you need to remove the checkout button manually from the offer accept mail configuration.
The creation of an automatic invoice includes the offer price and the shipping cost of the product.
NOTE:- Here, you have two fields i.e. “visible” and “required” to check or uncheck as per your need. But if you want to uncheck any of the two fields, just remove the field variables manually from the mail configuration.
Also Note:- If you make any changes in the “Form Configuration” then you need to regenerate the liquid file in the app. Otherwise, no changes will appear on the front end.
Here, you can configure label details about the “Make an offer” feature of the Multivendor app. You have a screenshot below to understand it well.
Liquid File Configuration
In order to display “Make an offer” form and button on the front end, all you need to do is to copy the below-given code and paste it to the product.liquid (or product-template,if exist) template.
Before this, you first need to generate a liquid file just by clicking the “Generate Liquid File” button.
This is the complete procedure that will help the admin to configure the details about the “Make an offer” feature. Now, once the customer submits the make an offer request, admin can view the request in the “Make An Offer Request” menu in the Multivendor app (if you set the configuration like this).
Now, admin can view all the requests from here and view the offer details just by clicking on the open button.
Once you click the open button, “Make an offer Request Description” page appears. Admin can either accept or reject the customer’s request by selecting the status.
Once the admin accepts the request, then the customer will receive a notification to make the payment.
If the admin rejects the request, then the customer can again request for the offer.
Seller End Configuration
After logging into the account on the app, the seller can view the customer’s request from the “Make an Offer” request menu in the product section of the app.
There you will get an “Open” button which helps the seller to view the details of the requests made from the customer. Just click on it and view the received requests.
Request details are shown like this (as shown in the screenshot below)
Here, the seller can manage the status of the request offered by the customers. He/she can either accept or reject the “Make an offer” request. Also a new option of “Shipping cost” is also provided to you from where the seller can add the shipping cost to the requested price.
If the seller checks the shipping cost option and adds some shipping amount and changes the status to accept the customer’s request then, once the changes are saved, the customer will get a notification about the offer from the client.
But if you don’t want the seller to add any shipping fee and accept or reject the offer from the client, then the seller can simply leave the shipping cost checkbox unchecked.
Important Note:- If the “auto draft enable” button is enabled at admin end then draft order is created once the admin/seller accepts the request and then the customer requests the invoice from his end. But if the shipping cost option is not checked, then the draft order is created once the customer “requests the invoice”.
Simply by clicking the “Make an Offer” button of any product on the product page, the customer can make a request for that particular product.
Once the customer taps this “Make an offer” button, an offer detail form will appear. The customer just needs to fill the required details in that form and offer a request by clicking the submit button.
Once the customer submits the form, the same request for the product is sent to the seller and the admin. Both admin and seller can view the request from “Make an offer request” menu in the product section of the app.
The seller can either accept or reject the request as mentioned above.
The customer can also view the request made by him/her in the “My Account” section of the store.
If the seller/admin rejects the request made by the customer, the whole process ends here.
But if the seller/admin accepts the request, the same will be visible to the customer’s account on the store. The customer will also receive the mail regarding the same.
The same will reflect to the customers at their respective “My Account” section.
NOTE:- As soon as the customer submits the form, the customer will get his account on the store. The customer will also receive a mail regarding the same if not registered on the store.
Now, there will be two options for the customer. He/she can either deny the request or can request an invoice. For this, the seller needs to send an invoice.
Once the customer request for invoice, “invoice created” will be the status. Now, the customer can checkout and purchase any product.
Clicking the Make an Offer button, the customers can view the offer request details.
Before the offer gets accepted
After the offer gets accepted
The customer can deny the request or request for an invoice.
After that, the customer can directly proceed to checkout from the “My Account” section.
Now, clicking the checkout button, the customer will be straightaway redirected to enter the information before payment & checkout.
Offer Requests on Cart Page
Selecting the “Cart Page” type from the “Make an Offer Configuration“, you can allow the buyers to add “make an offer” products (of multiple sellers) to the cart page and let them request quotes to each seller (whose products are added to the cart) in a go.
Now, with this, a request goes out to all the different sellers that this specific buyer wants more information on their “Make an offer” products.
The sellers will be receiving the request quotes from different buyers and will contact them outside the app.
POINTS TO BE NOTED:-
The buyer must log-in to the admin’s store.
No product prices will be shown on the cart page.
In this case, all the products added to the cart page will be treated as “Make an offer” products.
“Contact Seller” button will appear on the cart page instead of the “Checkout” button.
Clicking the “Contact Seller” button, all the sellers whose products are added to the cart will receive the quote (via email) requested by the buyer. Now, the seller will contact the buyer that is not managed in the app. The buyer will see a confirmation message that the seller will contact him/her once the quote request is received.
That’s all about this feature of the Multivendor Marketplace app. Now, the store owner can get the customer’s requests which help him to offer the desired product to the customers.
