What Does 'Updating' Mean?
Every software program is a work in progress. Improvements are made. 'Bugs' are fixed. Special situations are addressed. 'Updating' means installing the latest version of the software to obtain the most recent version.
'Updating' is different from 'upgrading'. The latter means to purchase a higher edition of BCSS (Deluxe, Diamond or Virtual).
Updating the software regularly will keep it fresh on your computer with the latest improvements. Perhaps as often as once per quarter, check the latest updates at https://www.bestconsignmentshopsoftware.com/update.htm.
Please note that updates are free via email. (Complete instructions are provided for the required procedures.) Personal assistance via phone and remote PC connection are not included in free updates but such assistance is available ($20/15 minutes, minimum of $29 per incident).
If you would like to have personal assistance, payment of the may be made online with a credit card. Click here. then click on 'Submit Payment' to proceed. Enter 29 for 'Amount' and click Submit. Once payment has processed, send an email letting us know that the payment has been made and include the reason for the submission.
The payment of $29 is for the expected time it takes on average to complete the update. Additional charges will apply for sessions exceeding 20 minutes.
