Using Square for Consignment Sales

I'd like to be able to track sales by vendor for a consignment shop.  Has anyone used Square to do this?  Maybe create a category which is a specific vendor?  

 

Any suggestions on how anyone has done it will be a big help.

Hi VBBGallery, I own a consignment shop and use square...though I use a consignment software that tracks what purchases sell for each vendor and use square as my POS service. You could make each vendor a category listing on square but I think you'll find it becomes hard to track each item and very labor intensive...hence I would search out consignment software to help with the inventory aspect

Hi, thanks, I was thinking that I could just use the category field for vendor.  What consignment s/w did you end up using?

@Kimberlyh - Hello,

 

Would you mind sharing what type of consignment software you use in conjunction with Square?  I like Square up and don't want to change, but also need a good software that will help with a customer database, let consignor's see their account status, keep inventory, track sales, run reports, etc.  Is there such a software out there that will work with Square Up without having to manually program everything into the system?

NextGenResale's app for women's and children's consignment and resale shops handles the inventtory pricing and buying and seller/consignor management.  It exports this information to Square for tag printing, sales and inventory management.

Best Consignment Shop Software allows any credit-card processor to be used, including Square. The initial cost is way under most programs and there are no annual support fees. A free demo is available from the website.

What type of software do you use for your consignment? I have been searching several over the past few months. Do you have clothing, furniture, or other items that are on consignment? Thanks for the information.

I own an art gallery and sell many items on consignment. I enter the artists last name at the beginning of the product description. Then run a item sales report at the end of the month and sort it alphabetically by the item category. Each artist/vendorʻs items are grouped together.

I have a small retail business that does carry a small amount of consignment inventory. I have them in two different ways. The first is by category "Consignments" with items grouped by consignee's business name and multiple lines for items under that. The second way is using the company name of the consignee as the category. Each has its benefits. The first helps the volunteers at the shop realize which items are consignment, which coupons or discounts are not allowed to be used on.

I use Square to capture both Vendor and consignment sales. I do it like this

I have a category for each Vendor and Consignor

Each consignor is created as an item with a 4 digit code identifier

then, under each item I use the prices, sizes or skus to create individual items or item categories.

When I run the end of month report it sorts the items by category and the details follow.

I read your post and I'm curious what report you run?  I too track sales for our consigners but I find myself having to sort all of the transactions at the end of the month to get their reports together.  It's very time consuming and labor intensive.  Thanks in advance for your help!

@timestincup actually uses our software now to track consignment. Our consignment software integrates with Square's point of sale and automatically generates the reports you need to payout consignors/vendors. Let me know if you are interested in trying us out! We have a 30-Day Free Trial.

Time’s Tin Cup Vintage is a multi-channel business offering consignment, wholesale gift items, online sales through our Etsy shop and rented vendor space. Consignor Connect finally has created a system that integrates with Square POS that allows me to keep track (with very little effort) of all my tracking, reporting and payout needs. LOVE IT!
