A Quick Quote is a streamlined version of an RFQ. This kind of buyer request is often much less detailed, requiring a quote for a single product from a single supplier.



Method two:

Initiate an RFQ

If users are looking for several suppliers for the product or service users require, create an RFQ detailing the list of products or services users require.

Specifying deadlines for delivery, the specification of the product(s)
