SpreeCommerce Quotes Management
As a potential customer of an ecommerce store, a big assurance and confidence boost for me is to see testimonials from existing customers.
If you want to add this capability to your Spree store, there is help available.
The extension provides the functionality to receive testimonials from customers. It also allows the store owner to submit testimonials on behalf of customers. The store owner also has the capability to moderate testimonials submitted by customers and mark them as published. These published testimonials can then be used at other places on the store.
To know more about how this extension works, you can read on or watch a video.
Below is a quick demonstration of how the extensions works :
gem 'spree_quotes_management', github: 'vinsol-spree-contrib/spree-quotes-management', branch: 'master'
Bundle the dependencies and then run the installation generator.
$ bundle exec rails g spree-quotes-management:install
Now, In the admin section, on the bottom left, you can see the option to manage quotes. Clicking on that shows you a screen where on the top right is the option to create a new quote.
One part of administrative detail is the quote approval process. After quotes are submitted, they need to be explicitly published by the admin so that they are available to the front end view.
This screen shot shows how the admin can publish submitted quotes.
