Forgive me if i have missed this some where, but, is there an easy way to instead of having the customer directed to a checkout, instead have the customers cart forwarded for a request for a quote that can be emailed to someone for followup?

This is not a Magento native functionality

Thank you So much for the reply.

I am wondering, if i needed to create this functionality, if the best approach would be to over ride the event that triggers the call to the checkout (not sure at the moment what that event is)

A message that briefly discusses what i am thinking is here:

I hate to bring up old topics, but…

I just wanted to see if anyone has developed an RFQ solution into Magento. One of my projects is requesting this feature, and I don’t know where to begin extending.

I’m guessing it can be treated like a purchase order, but instead is just shows the product and the quantity. Any ideas?

HI,

Yep I am still waiting for a Request for Quote module as well.  I even offered to pay someone to write one but no one was interested.

Regards

Try using a zero subtotal checkout feature, then follow up that.
