What if the buyer submits an incomplete quote request?
If you’re stuck in a place where the buyer didn’t provide enough information for you to quote accurately, here are some possible solutions:
- Submit an offer, and provide notes in the “Additional Comments” section detailing where the quote request info was lacking, where you made some suggestions, and how you approached the offer.
- Take advantage of the fact that you can submit multiple offer variations, and submit a couple of your best guesses.
- Contact the buyer directly and ask for clarification before submitting an offer. Depending on how that conversation goes, you may want to ask the buyer to submit a new quote request.
- Or, a combination of all of the above.
