Entering Items to Sell


All sellers must rack their own items during check-in.

  1. From the Consignor Home Page, click “Work with Consigned Inventory.” A page with several options will appear. To get started, click on “Work with My Consigned Items (Active Inventory).”
  2. If you have sold with us before and wish to start this sale with item #1, you must first delete all inactive inventory. Click on “Work with My Consigned Items (Inactive Inventory) to do this. If you wish to move things from a previous sale to this sale, you must use this button as well to add items to your active inventory.
  3. Fill in the required information for each item.

**If you have your items sorted by type and size, this will go faster. The system holds on to the last information entered for these categories. Click on “Submit Item.” The quantity should always equal 1.

  1. A list of all items entered will show on the bottom of your screen. You can choose to discount everything with one button, or go through each item separately. You can choose to donate items the same way.
  2. If you need to delete an item and still have inventory to enter, the easiest way to keep you numbers from skipping is to edit that item.
  3. You may access any item previously entered by clicking on “Edit,” shown next to the item.
  4. To exit this page, click “I’m Finished for Now.”
  5. You are limited to 200 items. Remember that 1 item = 1 tag. You can put more than one article of clothing together in 1 item. Please be sure to reflect this in your tag description. If you go over 200 items, you will be asked to remove items at check-in.

During and After the Sale

  • You may check the online system to see what items have sold while the sale is in progress. The system updates at the end of each day.
  • Unsold items are stored in the system and you can add them to a future sale with one click.
  • You will be paid based on what is scanned out during the sale, minus the $6.00 seller fee and 30% of your total going back to the church.

Printing Tags

  1. Be sure any pop-up blocking software has been DISABLED.
  2. Click “Work with Consigned Inventory” and a page with several options will appear. To get started, click on “Print All Tags.”
  3. A new screen will appear showing all of your tags. Print this page. Tags may be printed on regular, white paper (cardstock is NOT required).
  4. Please be sure your barcodes have solid, vertical lines. This will insure that each item scans correctly. If you print tags while your ink is low, the tags may not scan. Please make sure your ink is full before you print tags.
  5. Hangers should open to the right shoulder or right hip of the item.
  6. Cut and attach tags on the left shoulder or left hip of the item.
  7. You may also select specific tags to print if you do not need all of them at once or only wish to print tags you have not previously printed. Click “Work with Consigned Inventory” and then “Print Selected Tags.” Check the box next to all items you wish to print. Follow steps 3 and 4.
  8. If you make changes to an item in the inventory system after printing its tag, you must print a new tag.
  9. Please make sure that you use safety pins to pin your tags to your items. Straight pins are NOT allowed and you will have to remove and replace all of them before you check-in. We do not have safety pins at the sale.

Wire hook hangers with plastic arms are not permitted. We will not be able to provide wire hangers for you to re-hang your items brought on plastic hangers. Items such as toys, books, and games do not have to be on hangers.

Shoes can be placed in a bag (zip-lock or plastic gallon-type bag) and then hung on a wire hanger (the hanger can push through the bag). If shoes (such as boots or older children’s shoes) are too large to fit in a bag, the shoes must be zip-tied to a wire hanger. Zip-ties may require one per shoe to keep them secure on the hanger. As a reminder, shoes must be in excellent condition or they will be rejected upon check-in.

All clothing sizes MUST be entered as a number. Please convert ‘small’, ‘medium,’ and ‘large’ to the equivalent number size. Please use the correct category for every item you enter.

Please be sure to package your items securely. Use ample packing tape to make sure bags stay closed, items stay together, and tags stay on. Please securely tape shut ALL DVDs and video games to prevent the disc or game from being removed from the case. Please make sure that items packaged in a box are able to be seen by the consumer. Items which cannot be viewed through the packaging typically do not sell.

Tags should be as descriptive as possible (do not put ‘Jeans’ or ‘Blue Shirt’). Whenever possible, start with the brand name and give a detailed description — “GAP Jeans with Floral Embroidery” or “Gymboree Blue Shirt with Dogs.” If a tag should come off of an item, our system has the ability to search inventory and print a new tag. This is only possible if we can match the tag description to the item. Items with missing tags cannot be sold and will most likely be donated since we do not know which seller to return them to.

We do not pay sellers for items that go missing during the sale. We will do our very best to take good care of your items and prevent loss or theft.
