Quote Management

Note: This feature is supported with the B2X edition of Intershop Commerce Management.

As outlined in Quoting, quotes are used for "freezing" prices for a specific customer and for a definable period. In Commerce Management, business operators can view and edit quote requests created by customers in the storefront as well as submit quotes.

Note: The tasks described in this section are performed in the context of a sales channel. They require the current user to be assigned as an account manager to the customer who created the quotes.
