- Scroll down on the left side navigation to "Shop Type"
- Toggle for the service that you are looking for
From here you will now have the ability to search shops specifically for that service.
In this example we showcase searching for finishing services.
Creating an Order
After filtering for your desired service, click on the shop you wish to create an order with. Click Request a Quote as shown below.
Fill out the following information in the request:

After filling out each section of the "Create a Request" form, click the Save Changes button and then the Submit Request button.
Upon submitting the request, the seller will be notified of your new request and you will be presented with these two options of creating a new proposal to the same or another supplier or returning to the Supplier Listing.
