If quotes are enabled in the Sales features configuration, an authorized buyer from a company can initiate the price negotiation process by requesting a quote from their shopping cart. If a buyer is not ready to submit a quote for negotiation, they can save it as a draft.


A request for a quote cannot include discount codes or gift cards.
