Offer Confirmation E-mail¶
Offers are usually created from Enquiries but you are also able to create a new offer manually in the Offers appliction. Offer is sent to potential customer who have expressed an interest in your products and services by sending an Enquiry. Sending an Offer is always a manual process, you are not able to do this automatically (like sending the Enquiry Confirmation E-mail). It means that you have to go to the Sales module, run the Enquiries application and select particular Enquiry for which you want to create an Offer and send it to the customer in the next step.
Offer is a pre-order. It is offering your products and services (with prices) based on the Enquiry a customer placed through your website (online catalog). The Offer e-mail should also contain an Offer PDF (a document with the information and products you are offering to the customer together with the final price). The customer is able to accept or decline this order on your website in the :User Portal. There should be defined special pages containing all Enquiries, Offers and Orders the customer has made. And in the detail of an Offer should be located accept and decline buttons. Insert a link to the e-mail which leads to the Offers in the User Portal (a place where the customer can accept or decline the Offer).
