The standard request type “RFQ” is a classic request for quotation based on a list of services that you are to price in the form of a quotation.

Options of a RFQ and their meaning:

Option set by buyer

Meaning for you as a supplier

Discount/surcharge on total amount

If the buyer has ticked this option, you can give a percentage or absolute discount/surcharge in your quotation in addition to the indication of prices.

Inquiry with default prices

(bidding procedure)


The purchaser has already specified unit prices for the individual services in the items list. You can see these both under the service list tab of the request and in your quotation.

In your quotation you can:

·         Maintain a discount/surcharge at header level (on the total amount of the quotation)

·         Enter different prices for the individual services (Optional only if permitted by the buyer)

Default prices cannot be changed

If the buyer has checked this option, you can only maintain a discount/surcharge on the total amount in your quotation.
