The POS software itself is tiered in price and features so unwanted or unneeded features don't bloat the price.
Prices are considerably lower than other offers largely because price has not been inflated with precharges for support. No forever payments.
There are no monthly or annual support fees so the ongoing cost of installing these systems in your shop can be zero if our tech and customer support reps are never needed. When they are, payment is made at the time help is delivered and at rates well below those charged by local technicians. Our reps can attend remotely to issues with computers, networks, Windows, our pos software and most hardware issues.
Some point-of-sale programs for the software alone are priced at $1,100 to $1,300. Our Diamond package includes the software, a thermal receipt printer, a cash drawer and a barcode scanner for $999. (Substitute a thermal label printer for the receipt printer for just $100 more.) All equipment is brand new and under 2-4-year warranties backed by 2-day replacement and 30-day DOA (dead on arrival) protection.
Shipping charges are not added on (except for deliveries outside the continental US.
Sales tax is not payable (except for TX).
A percentage can be set in the program as a bonus to those who choose store credit for settlement. Store-credit settlements keep the money in the store and increases profit by increasing sales. There are also fewer payouts to be made, making store-credit settlement and the bonus an attractive software feature.
A separate software module can pass a set % of credit-card charges on to consignors. Any person objecting can be excluded. This is becoming a more widely implemented way of increasing store profit (by reducing an expense). A percentage can also be added to credit-card sales at POS and can be removed if met with resistance. A 3rd option allows a set dollar amount or percentage to be deducted from sales proceeds before applying the consignor split. These features are $19.95/mo.
The Virtual edition of the software allows consignors to view their account information online, reducing the number of calls to the shop for account information. Consignors (or anyone) can also add inventory online to be downloaded at the shop. This feature is $25/mo.
The Diamond edition supports thermal label printing, a preferred method over sheet-label printing supported in the Deluxe edition. Other features include employee management, QuickBooks export and network multiple computers (to share the same database simultaneously).
Every edition of Best Consignment Shop Software includes POS functionality. In the Intro edition inventory is entered when it is sold. In the other editions inventory can be added to the sales invoice by scanning a barcode, by selecting an item from a list of items, by typing the inventory ID or by entering an item not in inventory. Up to five invoices can be opened at the same time to facilitate checking out more than one customer at a time.
