You've just added this product to the cart:
Hiding prices leads to communication between stores and buyers become more closely. The support then will be more detailedly and better. The negotiation can be done privately and sensitively. Therefore, it increases the success rate of purchases thanks to productive interaction with customers.
With the products are sold by a large number of distributors, the shop owners would like the price to be non-public to avoid competitiveness and losing potential customers.
The price is frequently changed due to the effect of economic fluctuation. In this case, showing the fixed price is not possible. At each period, customers should contact directly to get the updated actual price.
In case, a customer feels curious about some kind of product while at that time, the price is showed and immediately he finds that he can not afford it, his intention of buying will be eliminated right away. The hiding of prices encourages customers to invest more time to understand deeply about product value before considering its price.
The "Add to cart" button will be hidden in this case. The purpose is mainly introducing details of products. The store would like to provide products information to visitors instead of aim to encourage customers to make the purchase at a specific time. This application can be used when products are not available (out of stock or upcoming in near future). For example, the upcoming release of a new mobile version.
A pop-up as request form will appear, suggesting customers to fill in before approaching product price. The most important field in this form is leaving a message to store owners. This is significantly helpful to customers who are wholesalers because they would like to make big orders and wish for direct negotiation for the best price. For instance, a fashion retail store would like to order a large number of clothes.
With the product which requires a special purchasing procedure and the store owner would like to give the instruction carefully for the buyers, the redirecting function of Call for price/ Get a quote button is useful.
By clicking on this button, customers will be navigated to a new detailed page. It can be How to buy or Contact us. For example, a type of shoe which is distributed internationally, so customers will be linked to the right distributor site near the customer's location.
Customers are required to log in to see the product price. Login to see price button now is commonly used in professional online stores. The price will only be shown to the users who are really keen on and do not mind signing up to approach more product information.

I am a wholesale store owner and actually, I do not want the price of all products to be public for all customers. I would like to have more discussion before giving the quotation. Thanks to this great tool, I really feel relaxed because I find the best solution. Many thanks for your helpfulness!
