An eQuote can be retrieved by the individual user who saved it or by an authorized eQuote shopper or buyer.

Some user roles provide the ability to access another user’s eQuote information using the same "eQuotes" link.

2. If you need to purchase multiple quotes, you can easily select them and click "Purchase Selected". Select the quote that will be used to populate billing, shipping, and payment information for the entire order and click "Review Order".The selected quotes will move to your cart immediately. Note that you can verify and edit billing, shipping, and payment information during checkout.

3. At the bottom of your Quote page, you can access and view expired eQuotes. Clicking 'Requote" moves the eQuote to cart immediately and generates a new eQuote number. The new eQuote may reflect changes based on item availability and current pricing.

You can have access to both eQuotes and Sales Quotes via your Premier Page. eQuotes are generated and saved via Premier by users of the store. They can be modified online prior to purchase. Sales Quotes are generated by a Dell Sales Rep. They can be retrieved and purchased through Premier but the quotes are locked. Any modifications require Dell Sales Support.

To differentiate between the two types of quotes, the numbering systems are different. eQuotes generally start with a "1" and are 13 characters long. Sales Quotes are provided by your Sales Representative, are up to 13 characters in length and can contain a version number at the end.
