What Is Quick Order for Magento 2?
Normally, customers have to access several product pages before reaching the end of the order process. It takes time and annoys customers, especially when buying items in bulk.
Wholesalers deeply understand this circumstance, and quick order is one of their top solutions. Adobe now supports the B2B module for the Commerce version, and quick order is already a built-in function. It helps reduce purchasing time by several clicks without navigating to different pages.
Quick Order functionality makes it dead simple for wholesale customers to place bulk orders by manually entering multiple SKUs or importing the file(s) into the form.
When the function is enabled, a Quick Order link will appear at the top of the page. Then, visitors can use Quick order, whether they are registered customers or guests.
Quick Order Function Helps Fasten the Purchasing Process
By Entering Individual Products
Customers can place orders in next to no time if they remember SKUs or product names.
All they need to do is simply click on the Quick Order link and enter the exact product SKUs or names.
If they don’t remember the entire SKU or name, they can enter several keys and a drop-down with suggestions will appear to remind them.
When the possible match list appears, they just have to click on their desired item.
By Entering Multiple Products
Ordering multiple products in bulk separately is such a nightmare for wholesale customers. With Quick Order, this process is much easier.
Customers can enter SKUs one by one per line
Or, insert the whole list into the box, separated by commas and no spaces between.
Then, simply click Add to List button to add all the items to their cart.
The most interesting thing is they can specify each item’s quantity in the list.
Customers are prompted to select if the product has the required options (such as size, color, etc.).
Uploading a List of Products
If customers get a long list of products, the fastest way to proceed order is to upload a file. They can Download Sample of an order template from the Add from File section.
Open the sample and fill the template with a list of products and their quantities. Upload the file by hitting the Choose File button. Then, they just need to choose the right file from the directory.
The items and quantities are added respectively to the Quick Order list
Finally, customers can proceed through the checkout process as usual.
