Types of Book Sales

Consignment of course is the selling of items belonging to others. Consignments are often discounted over time as they remain unsold. There can be any number of categories of merchandise and each category can have a designated discount schedule allowing for precise control over the discounting of aging inventory. The program includes a 'sales-promotion' feature. A date range for a sale can be set and each category can be discounted by dollar or percentage amounts.

'Resale' in the software generally refers to the purchase of goods from individuals with detailed records of sellers and purchases.

'Retail' is the buying and selling of merchandise from publishers, book stores and other sources which are not individuals.

With resale and retail, cost of goods is recorded and profit/loss is computed for any designated period of time.
