BCSS FREE CONSIGNMENT SOFTWARE is a computer application (app) that installs on Windows computers for managing a consignment-resale shop. Sell merchandise for others and resell your own inventory.
Free Consignment Software is a simple program for processing sales and settlements. It can print sheet price labels and hang tags, receipts, agreements, reports and checks using an ink printer. This plan does not track inventory so there can be no inventory reports, automatic discounting of aged inventory or the support of equipment like barcode scanners, receipt and label printers and cash drawers. Items must be entered at POS. The number of consignor accounts is limited to 30.
The offer includes a free set-up session. A technician can log onto your computer (with your permission) and talk to you on the phone to walk you through configuration.
Obviously we aren't taking in any revenue so training and support aren't included. That way, if you don't need or want help, you will not have paid for it. If you do need help the cost is minimal.
The program includes training videos and a very well-illustrated user's guide for DIY.
The only requirement is that credit-card transactions be processed by BluePay. There are no application fees and the card swiper is provided. Bluepay even offers to pay $500 if they can't beat your current credit-card cost so don't worry! Their rates are very low.
An Optional Profit Module!
The Profit Module allows the options of:
- Deducting credit card charges from settlements
- Excluding any person who doesn't wish to participate
- Passing credit-card costs to buyers (where allowed by law)
- Removing the charge for those who object
- Deducting a % from all settlements before splitting sales with consignors
Effectively the Profit Module increases monthly earnings by passing credit-card cost on to patrons, including the module subscription ($19.95/month).

Help with Consignment Software
Quite often when a shop owner or employee encounters an issue he or she turns to the software provider for support, not really knowing what the issue is, what caused it or how to fix it. Understandable but when calling out for help it's helpful to remember that several things must work correctly 100% of the time to avoid unexpected results: Windows, the computer, hardware, the software and the database. When seeking assistance, it's best not to assume and simply ask for advice.
Consignment Software for New York
All editions of Best Consignment Shop Software have two configurable tax fields to accommodate various state and local laws regarding sales tax.
The State of New York stipulates, "Clothing, footwear and items used to make or repair exempt clothing selling for less than $110 per item or pair are exempt from the New York State 4% sales tax" as well as other applicable local taxes. (details)
With BCSS it is also possible to create specific categories of items (like clothing) and apply a tax rate to each category.
Each category can be discounted according to its own schedule, can be 'tax free' or 'tax at or tax' above a stipulated dollar value.
A different consignor % can be assigned to any category.
Best Consignment Shop Software is tiered in features and price so shops just starting out and small operations have options vs 'one size fits all'.
Unlike most software offerings there is no prepayment for support which is a primary reason for the (much) lower initial cost.
Ongoing costs can be nonexistent as well because software updates are free and there are no monthly or annual support fees. Heads up: Any software vendor touting support fees as 'optional' has strategies in place to force enrollment in the support plan, including withholding of software updates and denying service is all forms.
There's much to do in any start-up operation and slaving over which software to buy shouldn't be such a difficult task but with so much sales hype masking after-purchase costs, make this a much simpler effort by downloading the free demo (to make sure the program does all that is needed and to assure that it works properly on your computer(s) and save a lot of money!
