Saving Quotes and Carts in Your Account

Quotes and Carts
In the second part of our series about the account section of the MaverickLabel website, we’ll show you how to use the Saved Carts and Saved Quotes functions. These sections in your account contain any quotes or shopping carts you’ve saved while you were shopping on the site. Saving these allows you to come back later and pick up right where you left off in the process.
You can save a quote from our website, or CustomerCare can do this for you. The quote for each specific job is good for 30 days; the price on a saved quote will not change until the expiration date. This means that even if the price goes up during those 30 days, you will pay the price on the quote if you order before it expires. You don’t lose out if you want to shop around, compare prices and quality, or get approval from higher-ups.
Saving a quote is incredibly easy. You don’t even need to create an account if you don’t want to, as your quote will be available via an email link for the full 30 days. We’ll send you an email with the link and all the order details. [su_row][su_column size="1/2"][/su_column] [su_column size="1/2"]To save a quote, go to the pricing page for any of our labels. As you can see on the first video, you simply click on the “Get Pricing Now” button on any product page, and fill in the specifications you want on the quoter. In this one, we’re ordering 200 affordable labels in a circular shape, on white gloss polyester, with three colors. We don’t need artwork or anything else at this point, you’re just getting the price quote so you can compare with others or run it past accounting or your executives.[/su_column][/su_row] As you can see, when you click on the Save Quote button, you get a screen where you can enter your email address. You may also enter other emails, if you want others to receive the link to your quote. As this is the first quote and I expect others will want changes in the near future, I unchecked the box for the expiration reminder email. If you enter a zip code at the request screen, we’ll even send estimated shipping prices. (And remember, UPS ground shipping to addresses in the US is free for orders over $50!) Note that you can also order free samples of the product you’re saving the quote for. We’ll try to send samples of the specific material you’ve requested, as well as the usual sample pack for that product so you can compare the materials.
Editing a Saved Quote
[su_row][su_column size="1/2"][/su_column] [su_column size="1/2"]The second video shows a copy of the emailed quote. You can click on the button in your email, and the quote will open in your default browser. Here you can click on the edit button, which will take you back to the specifications page. You can change any of the specifications. (In the video, we changed the material, the lamination option, and the quantity. We also added a perforation option to the roll.) As you do so, the price will update to reflect those changes. You can save this new quote in the same manner, if you need to.[/su_column][/su_row] Saved quotes may also be retrieved by entering the code number given to you in the email in the search field on any page of the site. These job codes start with two letters followed by three sets of three numbers. If your original quote was approved “as is,” once you go to the saved quote, you can upload your artwork, fill in a few more details, and add the quote to your cart and check out.
Saving a cart is easy as well. (Customer Care can help you with this, too.) Saved carts will remain in your account until you delete them. The price of an order in a saved cart, however, will adjust if our prices change. This adjustment will occur when you select the “Checkout” button. You don’t need to log in or create an account to save a quote (although of course you can), but we recommend that you do before you save a cart. That way, the cart can be associated with your account in the future.
Sign In for Your Cart
[su_row][su_column size="1/2"][/su_column] [su_column size="1/2"]You can sign in or create an account from any page on our site. Just look for the “login” button up near the top of each page. Clicking this link brings you to a screen where you can log in if you have an account. You can create an account here, too, if you don’t already have one. You can also reset your password. Once you’ve logged in, you can either open a saved quote and continue with it, or go to a specific product and enter your label specs on the pricing page. When you have what you want in your cart, just click the “Save for Later” button if you want to save the cart. The Save Cart screen allows you to enter your email address, so we can send you verification of the saved cart. You can also name the cart and add a short note about it here, as a reminder.[/su_column][/su_row] [su_row][su_column size="1/2"][/su_column] [su_column size="1/2"]Saved carts will appear in your account in the Saved Carts section. Just click the “Account” button at the top of the page and then the Saved Carts button in the Account screen. The list of saved carts will show the name you gave the cart when you saved it, as well as the job code, the quantity, the price at the time it was saved, and your notes, if any. You can delete the cart, or go to it. Once in the cart, you can remove items, save the cart for later, or checkout.[/su_column][/su_row] Easy peasy!
