For changing Add to Cart Text on a Single Product Page, use the program below:

 // Change Add to Cart text on Single Product Page

add_filter( ‘woocommerce_product_single_add_to_cart_text’, ‘woocommerce_custom_single_add_to_cart_text’ ); 

function woocommerce_custom_single_add_to_cart_text() {

    return __( ‘Request a Quote’, ‘woocommerce’ ); 

}

For changing Add to Cart Text on a Category Page, use the program below:

// Change Add to Cart text on Category Page

add_filter( ‘woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text’, ‘woocommerce_custom_product_add_to_cart_text’ );  

function woocommerce_custom_product_add_to_cart_text() {

    return __( ‘Request a Quote’, ‘woocommerce’ );

}

After adding these functions to the bottom of the Functions.php file, Save to see if the changes are applied. After the changes are applied, you can set a redirection for the products from cart page to quote page. 

Final Thoughts

A WooCommerce Request a Quote plugin opens up all sorts of potential for online stores due to its ability to enable your pricing structure to feel more flexible. Price quoting, on the other hand, enables you to sell custom items or packages and then price them later based on the customer, and the materials.
