Invoicing Estimate vs Quote (Poll)

Here's the difference. Which do you prefer? A quote (or quotation) is an exact price for the job being offered. As such it is fixed and CANNOT be changed once it has been accepted by the customer (unless the customer changes the amount/type of work required or you discover something completely outside of the scope of what was agreed).
Do you prefer the word "Estimate" or "Quote" being used in the Invoicing System?

Re: Invoicing Estimate vs Quote (Poll)

There is a big difference on the meaning of the word.  If I am selling a product and a customer wants a price, i give them a quote. Ie. 10 items at $2.


If I have a contractor or mechanic I have an estimate for a job.  Because they cannot see every piece of the job on the front end.

Re: Invoicing Estimate vs Quote (Poll)

Hence the reason for the poll. For my business, a quote makes more sense. I'd like to get a feeling for what the majority of the community thinks.
