2. Wafeq automatically generates a Quote number in a sequence.

3. Choose the Currency in which you want to send your quote.

4. (Optional) You may add the Purchase Order that you received from your buyer.

5. Choose the Contact corresponding to the customer from your contact list, or create the contact directly in the quote form.

6. (Optional) Assign the quote to a Project.

7. If you’re VAT-registered and the Place of Supply is required in your country, choose it so Wafeq correctly generates your VAT return once you convert the quote to an invoice.
