Order Life Cycle and Statuses

Order Life Cycle

Phase 1: Request for a quote.

Customer creates a request for a quote or posts a project.

A posted project is not tied to a specific service or Pro. A request for a quote, on the contrary, is tied to a specific service of a specific Pro.

Phase 2: Quote.

When a Pro responds to the request for a quote, they create a quote. Quotes may contain edits from the Pro.

Phase 3: Order.

When a customer accepts and pays for a Pro’s quote, the quote becomes an order.
