With version 1.5.0 we introduced the new Enquiry Cart & Basket feature. This allows your customers to use the standard WooCommerce Add to Cart functionality, but without the checkout process.
Instead of the checkout Process your customers will see a “Send Enquiry” button on the cart pages, where they can send you a message with all the products they have in their current cart.
Add to Enquiry Cart Button
Show the Add to Enquiry Cart button on single products with ease. Simply go into our plugin settings > Enquiry Cart. There enable the functionality and you can set a custom Add to Enquiry Cart button text.
Enquiry Cart / Basket & Form
The enquiry cart or basket contains the products, the user has selected for his enquiry. It shows product data like name, quantity, price (if enabled). Furthermore there are options to remove products, update the quantity and, most important, to send an enquiry.
The enquiry basket form, that opens, when you click the button, can contain any text or shortcode. We use a CF7 Contact Form here with a textarea named “products”. Our plugin automatically adds the products from the cart into the products textarea.
WooCommerce Enquiry Basket Settings
There are multiple options available for the new feature like enable / disable, set custom button and cart texts. You can also decide if you wan to open the enquiry modal, where you can use the cf7 shortcode, or you can link to a complete different page. Furthermore you can hide / show the price, SKU or Quantity within the enquiry cart.
If you use another form plugin, you may need to change the products name field within this settings. Inspect your form via Chrome inspector and search for the name field. Then enter this value into the Products Field Name.
Example Contact Form 7 below. Very important is the “products” field. We put the cart items into a field named products only.
