How to create a quote
A quote is a first step to creating an invoice. A quote is used to give an offer to your customer for goods or a service. It usually includes a description of the product or job to be done, price, payment and delivery terms.
In Bokio's quotes, the validity period must also be stated so your customer knows how long they have to accept the offer.
1. Go to Quotes
In our menu, go to Invoicing → Quotes. On the Quotes page, you can get an overview of drafts, sent and accepted quotes. If you want to create a new quote, click on Create a quote.
2. Add company information
When you create a quote, first make sure that you add the right company information for your business.
Did you know that you can click the "..." button in the right corner, you can add a logo, change the invoice colour and position of your address?
3. Add or create a new customer
Now you can add a customer. If the customer has previously been saved, you can select it from the list. If not, you can create a new customer by choosing Create new.
4. Add items or services
Just like an invoice, you can add products and/or services to your quote. These are used when converting your quote to an invoice later. If you have saved items, you can choose from them quickly. Or, create a new row and fill in the details.
5. Add additional information
You can add jpg, png or pdf files to your quote for any additional information.
6. Enter conditions
Specify how long your quote is valid under conditions. If you want to state payment terms that indicate how long the customer has to pay when they receive the invoice for the job later including overdue interest, you can do this in Settings → Invoice and quote settings.
7. Choose delivery method, preview and publish the quote
During the delivery method, you can preview your quote. Then you choose to send the quote as an email or download it as a PDF. Then you can send and publish the quote.
