Consignment is growing in popularity in Mexico, particularly in tourist areas like Cancun (Super Bazar, Bazar Cancun, Ventas Bazar Palace, Remates De Segunda Mano, Lobo Sales and Bazar Taz).
Best Consignment Shop Software is Bazar software adapted for use in Mexico:
Price labels and hang tags can be printed (with barcodes) using a standard black/white ink printer from sheets of labels or on plain paper. Barcodes can be scanned at checkout to populate the sales invoice with item description, price and owner, and they can be scanned to find items in inventory records. Barcode scanners are like keyboards as input devices and are generally universal. Any scanner can be tested with the demo version of Best Consignment Shop Software for compatibility. Keep in mind that only barcodes printed by BCSS can be read by the program.
A cash drawer used with BCSS is a metal 'box' for storing valuables and has a compartmentalized tray for separating currency and coins. The drawer has a lock and can be opened with a key.
A cash drawer typically connects to a receipt printer and opens when a receipt is printed. Using Best Consignment Shop Software, the drawer will only open for non-credit-card transactions (check, cash, etc.).
Stores selling used merchandise often have no-return provisions which negate the necessity of printing receipts, making a receipt printer unnecessary. The program does provide for the printing of a sales receipt on plain paper using an ink printer, so it is possible to substitute a special adapter for the printer allowing the drawer to be connected directly to the computer. In BCSS the drawer can be opened by pressing a key, or again, will open for non-credit-card sales.
Mexican resales shops are often on tight budgets, making cost savings paramount. Best Consignment Shop Software makes it possible to print labels and tags with an ink printer and that avoids the much larger expense of a thermal label printer ($349 in the US) and its availability.
Best Consignment Shop Software provides a free live demo prior to purchase to assure that all needed features are available and that the software works properly. The demo can be performed remotely. Here's a video overview.
