Where do I get the pricing info?
If the pricing information does not display with the line item in a customer requested quote, you can use the Add Another Line Item to pull each product variant configuration (with pricing and SKU number) into the quote.
To do this, click on the Add Another Line Item link. If there are multiple applicable price grids for the line item, you will need to select a price configuration. Once you have set the configuration, use the dropdown to select the product variant you would like to include. Then, update the quantity to reflect the amount requested by the customer and delete the existing line item for that product variant.
How do I update what the customer sees for each product variant?
Use the arrow to expand the product variant section. The customer facing description will display for that line item within the quote. Additionally, you can use the checkboxes to hide product variant info or the trash can to remove the variant from the quote.
Options & Charges
The Options & Charges section includes any charges beyond the base pricing which are active on the quote, invoice, or order. The Vendor Charges section will contain any potential charges provided by the supplier so you do not need to refer to the product detail page or re-key any information; but these charges are not included in the order until you manually add them.
For example, the vendor may include a charge for a gift box. If your customer requested the product have a gift box, then this charge would apply, so you can click on the "+Add Charge" link to include on the order. If not, you do not need to take any action. The charge will remain in the Vendor Charges section and not be included on the order.
Once a charge has been moved into the Options & Charges section, you will be able to edit the information.
The Decoration Details section enables you to configure the applied decoration by choosing a decorator and selecting variants.
