Select Products in Guided Product Selector

This article describes how to use the out-of-the box Guided Product Selectors to add products and product rate plans to quotes.

Integrated with the product catalog, the out-of-the-box Guided Product Selectors lead you through the product selection process to add products and product rate plans to quotes. These Guided Product Selectors contain the first step to add base products, followed by the second step to add add-on products. The base and add-on products are specified in the Zuora Product Catalog and synchronized to Zuora Quotes. 

You can create a custom Guided Selling plugin for the Product Selector button bar, and override the default Guided Selling plugin. You can also conditionally hide the out-of-the-box Guided Selling Flow in Guided Product Selector. See Guided Product Selectors for configuring Guided Selling Flows and Steps.

By default, the Guided Product Selectors displays up to 30 product rate plans per quote, including existing product rate plans previously added to the quote or to the subscription being amended. See Advanced Quoting Configuration Settings if you want to customize this setting to display more or fewer number of rate plans in the Guided Selectors.
