Overview Magneto Call for Price Extension is very light weight and easy to understand plugin by FME. This extension has hide price feature which enables the store owners to conceal the price of products they want. These items are either out of stock or their prices are constantly changing and it is required to confirm about them on call or email before buying. You customer can interact in two ways, either by contacting on the provided contact number or they can drop their query through contact form. Call for Price Module is an interactive tool to keep your customers engaged in your products and to retain the potential ones. It replaces the price block and the „Add to Cart‟ button with personalized message. This option is particularly very important in the case where you are not completely aware of your potential customer‟s needs and instead you want them to show interest in further details of the product or service. This would encourage them to interact and generate a query. This would make them a potential lead that you can convert in the future. With this Hide Price Magento Module, you can alter the message according to your desire. Giving you authority to display any text, encourage new customers with the same effect. You can assign “Call for Price” tag to a single product, product category or subcategory or to whole shop, hence giving you a freehand to manipulate your customer in a meaningful way. This feature can be enabled from the admin backend panel, for details see the step by step portion of the extension. User Guide 2 FME Extensions Support Document
