Cart2Quote often does receive the question:
"How can I allow quote requests from my customers without them having
to create a Magento account in my store?"
This question is a request for a similar functionality as the Magento Guest Checkout.
Just like the Magento guest checkout feature Cart2Quote also will require a Magento account to be created. However, you can configure Cart2Quote in such a way that the customer is not bothered by this requirement. You need to set the following Cart2Quote options:
- Registration Mode: Allow Quote submission with a known email address, without login first.
- Email Templates: Disable all account-related e-mails
- Auto User Login: Yes
Auto User Login & Auto Confirm Proposal
With these settings enabled you will create an account free user experience for your customers.
Additionally, you can also from the e-mail redirect the customer straight to the checkout. This way the customer dashboard will also remain hidden for the customer.
- Use Auto Confirm Proposal: Yes
Having configured Cart2Quote in this way, you can expect the following customer journey when requesting a quote:
Your (new) customer arrives at your webstore, adds one or a few items to the quote list. He or she fills out the form. In case this is a returning customer, Cart2Quote will not ask to log in. Once the form is filled out and submitted, the store owner receives the request and answers with a price proposal. The customer receives an e-mail with the price proposal and is enabled use the proceed to checkout button and is redirected straight to the Magento checkout, without having to log in first.
