Encourage Customer to Contact: The call for price for price button increases the customers’ curiosity and makes them call you to know the price so that you can get a chance to talk with them and convince them to purchase the product from your store.
Negotiation: Because of the fixed pricing system of online stores, negotiation with customers is impossible. But with the Calling system, you can easily negotiate with the customers.
Hide Price from Competitors: Online businesses encounter competition, especially with the pricing system. As online stores have to add prices on product pages, competitors try to offer the product at the same price at a cheaper rate on their site. So, a calling system can hide the prices from competitors.
Attract Customers: The customers can only estimate the value of a product but not the cost without knowing the price. So they will be curious and attracted to the product if it can add some value for them. So they will call you to know the price, and the rest is up to you to convert that caller into a customer.
