Retail is the purchase of merchandise for resale from suppliers, wholesalers, importers, etc. The program provides the same functions and reports as for consignments and resales.

Best Consignment Shop Software processes consigning, reselling (buy outright) and retailing inventory.
Each consignor, consigned item and inventory category can have its own split percentage. For example:
- Regular customers might be paid 50% of sales proceeds while friends and relatives might be paid 80% and store owners are paid 100%.
- Most items might have a 50-50 split but consignors might be paid more for collectibles and expensive pieces.
- Items can be organized and grouped using categories and each category can be assigned its own %.
Price labels and hang tags may be printed on sheets of labels using an ink printer. More professional-looking thermal labels and tags can be printed with Diamond or Virtual.
Barcodes can be printing on labels and tags and scanned at checkout for fast POS processing. Receipts can be printed on plain paper or on 3" receipt paper using a thermal printer. Discounts can be granted at POS per item, per category, per invoice or store wide.
More than one invoice may be open at a time, allowing checkout of the next person in line in the event the current purchaser wishes to look for something else. A sale can be put on hold and reopened later.
Settlement of sold items can be in batch or per individual. For credit-card sales a % can be auto deducted from settlements to help defray credit-card cost. Other additions or deductions can be entered at settlement and the transactions can be printed.
Client data (consignors, sellers, suppliers, buyers) can be recorded and exported in .csv (comma-separated value) format to be used in free email programs (like MailChimp) for customer communications about account information and promotions.
With Virtual consignors can view account info online and add items remotely (which can be downloaded at the store for editing and label printing).
It's preferred practice to conduct a live demo on shop computers prior to purchase to assure that the program runs as expected and includes all necessary features so please go through the free live demo before purchasing it.
