Military wives in clubs, choirs, charities and foundations operate thrift stores on bases home and abroad using Best Consignment Shop Software. Unlike other programs, payment for the software is made once and for lifetime use with no ongoing fees for 'support'. Software updates are also free.
Service-related merchandise is a prime market for resale for several reasons:
In other words there a tons of people interested in owning and disposing of paraffinalia in a closed and unique market.
Placing items on consignment in a thrift store is a convenient way for military personnel and their dependents to turn their discards into cash. Shopping at the thrift store helps those on limited salaries to acquire merchandise at reduced prices.
'Resale' in Best Consignment Shop Software refers to the purchasing of used goods from individuals for reselling. The program keeps track of sellers, buy and sell prices and it computes profit and loss for any period of time.
Thrift Store Software Options
Whether the organization makes a little or a lot from store sales, it would rarely make sense to get involved with a web-based program costing a minimum of $99 per month. It's important to know that the software provider controls the software and will disable the software when payment stops.
Neither does it make sense to pay $1,400 up front and trailing annual support fees and beware, such a vendor will claim that after-purchase fees are optional without explaining the plans in place to force payment of 'annual support fees' (which are to deny service in any form and withhold software updates if fees are not paid).
Best Consignment Shop Software is a one-time payment for lifetime use. There are no ongoing monthly or annual support fees, optional or otherwise, so one payment and done. If support is needed after purchase, rates are half that of local IT services and if support is never needed (which happens most often) money will not have passed from the store to the software provider needlessly.
BCSS provides a free live demo prior to purchase - even overseas. The purpose is to assure that all needed features are present and that the software works properly. The demo can be performed remotely. Here's a video overview.
Consignment store owners who purchase other software programs will eventually pay more after purchase (for a variety of add-on charges that may not have been disclosed, much less emphasized, prior to purchase).
Software providers have been preying on military thrift stores for a long time, hiding fees this way and that, learning how to word advertising to suggest one-time payments when in fact a plethora of fees are in the works. Ask for a full disclosure in an email of all possible fees so when fees start showing up, you'll have something in hand to push back.
