That was all about the pros of this plugin. Now let’s see what are the not-so-good things about this plugin
You have heard about the positives of this plugin. But is this plugin totally flawless? No, it can’t be. We have found two major flaws in this plugin.
1. Lack of a free version
Although this is not really a con for this plugin, a free version with some basic features would’ve been great. The plugin developers have many free plugins under their name in the WordPress plugin library, so this would’ve been a great addition to the list.
As users do not have the option for a free trial of this plugin, a free version could be useful. Comparatively, its competitors also offer a free version.
2. No option for PDF quotes
The plugin lacks the functionality of sending PDF quotes to customers. This is really a lacking feature when its major competitors provide this feature in the premium version. As a hope, the PDF template is listed as a coming soon feature inside the plugin settings.
So maybe we can expect this feature to be added in the future. But at the time of writing this article, it does lack this feature.
There is no doubt that WooCommerce Request a quote plugin by WebToffee can be a great addition to your WordPress dashboard. It lets you create a functional quote system on your WooCommerce store.
The plugin providers offer reliable technical support and extensive documentation for the plugin. This facilitates an easy setup and configuration for the plugin. If you want a simple and functional quotes plugin for your WooCommerce store, this might be the right choice for you.
However, if you require PDF quotes, you may want to consider other plugins since this one lacks that feature.
