Place a negotiable quote order

This topic describes how REST calls can be used to place items in a shopping cart, initiate and complete the process of negotiating a quote, and reimbursing the buyer’s credit upon receipt of payment.

Prerequisites

Prepare the order

The steps in this section are similar to those in the Order processing tutorial, except that different products are added to the cart.

Create a shopping cart

In this example, the customer is a company user (buyer).

Endpoint

POST /V1/carts/mine

Headers

Content-Type application/json
Authorization Bearer <customer token>

Payload

None

Response

The response is the quoteId: 5

Add items

This example adds 15 Pursuit Lumaflex Tone Bands and 10 Harmony Lumaflex Strength Band Kits to the cart. You must make two calls to add these products.

Endpoint

POST V1/carts/mine

Headers

Content-Type application/json
Authorization Bearer <customer token>

Payload 1

{
  "cartItem": {
    "sku": "24-UG02",
    "qty": 15,
    "quote_id": "5"
  }
}

Response 1

{
    "item_id": 12,
    "sku": "24-UG02",
    "qty": 15,
    "name": "Pursuit Lumaflex&trade; Tone Band",
    "price": 16,
    "product_type": "simple",
    "quote_id": "5"
}

Payload 2

{
  "cartItem": {
    "sku": "24-UG03",
    "qty": 10,
    "quote_id": "5"
  }
}

Response 2

{
    "item_id": 13,
    "sku": "24-UG03",
    "qty": 10,
    "name": "Harmony Lumaflex&trade; Strength Band Kit ",
    "price": 22,
    "product_type": "simple",
    "quote_id": "5"
}

Set the shipping address

You can determine shipping costs after initiating a negotiable quote, but doing it now provides a more detailed picture of the final costs to the buyer. If you want to defer setting the shipping address until after the negotiable quote has been created, use the /V1/negotiable-carts/:cartId/estimate-shipping-methods call.

Endpoint

POST V1/carts/mine/estimate-shipping-methods

Headers

Content-Type application/json
Authorization Bearer <customer token>

Payload

{  "address": {
      "region": "California",
      "region_id": 12,
      "region_code": "CA",
      "country_id": "US",
      "street": [

      "telephone": "(415) 555-1212",
      "same_as_billing": 1
  }
}

Response

        "error_message": "",
        "price_excl_tax": 5,
        "price_incl_tax": 5
    }
]

Set shipping and billing information

You can also set shipping and billing information after initiating a negotiable quote by calling POST /V1/negotiable-carts/:cartId/shipping-information.

Endpoint

POST /V1/carts/mine/shipping-information

Payload

{
"addressInformation": {
  "shipping_address": {
  	"region": "California",

    "country_id": "US",
    "street": [
      "100 Big Tree Avenue"
    ],
    "postcode": "99999",
    "city": "San Francisco",
    "firstname": "Melanie",
    "lastname": "Shaw",
    "email": "mshaw@example.com",
