Hi,

I’ve been looking into using Jigoshop for my next project, but can’t seem to find a suitable extension for what I need.
I would like to setup the jigoshop as more of a product showroom/Catalogue type site, where users can browse all the products
and click "Request a Quote" or "Add to Quote list" type functionality. This would basically work like a shopping cart but rather than going through the checkout process it would list all the product there inquiring about and have a form for them to fill in contact details. This would then send off and email to the admin to process and reply with the quote. I was wanting to use Jigoshop for this as in the furture I might want to add ecommerce functionality.

The only plugins I have found that a similar are:
https://jigoshop.com/product/jigoshop-request-a-quote/
Which only allows a request a quote from the product page, no "Add to list"

https://jigoshop.com/product/jigoshop-catalog-deluxe/
This plugin hides the price and add to cart buttons.

Does anyone know of anything else? or is this better suited to some other CMS? shopping cart?

thanks

    Hi Rob,

    I think you replied to another post where I mentioned the wishlist plugin http://labs.sevenspark.com/JigoshopWishList

    You could hide the add to cart buttons with some css and not use the short codes for the cart/checkout so they wouldn’t appear and make add to wishlist be add to quote list.

    You could use contact form 7 or a similar plugin for the person to leave their name/email/location etc and have them paste in their wishlist link which would look something like this http://labs.sevenspark.com/JigoshopWishList or automate that within the form somehow.

    There is a product inquiry plugin. But it does work one by one on the products without a list.
