*Quotation is different from offer. The former usually refers to a unit price with delivery terms, while the latter contains not only that, but also quantity, time of shipment, payment terms, the time of validity of the offer, etc. From the legal point of view, the offer, if and when it is made firm, holds the seller who makes an offer, responsible for this business after it is accepted by the buyer.
