The Consignment Shop Software


 

Established in 1999, The Consignment Shop by SBS Solutions was developed for small to mid-sized consignment businesses in a variety of segments such as jewelry, furniture, books, apparel and more. The system offers a suite of tools that includes point of sale, e-commerce, inventory, and customer management.

On of the features offered in The Consignment Shop’s software suite is the ability to integrate with a store's website in real time, allowing for inventory to be listed, tracked and sold both on the web and in the brick and mortar store. The web store can be customized and payment can be made through different platforms like PayPal and Google.

This system supports both on-premise and web-based deployment and can be used on Mac and Windows devices. SBS Solutions offers support via telephone, email, and an online resource page. The Consignment Shop can integrate with Quickbooks for accounting purposes, and MerchantWare Services for credit card processing.

The Consignment Shop Software lives up to its hype! SBS killed it on this one. Don't be fooled by their website! The software is VERY easy to use and VERY easy to train employees to use. Something that a lot of other consignment software can't figure out. The reporting is perfect. Very useful for day-to-day operations and long-term decision making. Installation was a breeze and it's regularly updated. Recommend this 100% for your consignment operations!

Pros

Easy to use, simple installation, unparalleled support, great customer account management.

Cons

None! This is THE software to use for your consignment needs!

I love how easy and uncomplicated the software is. The customer service is by far hands down the best that I have had in a long time.

I wish the software was able to assist businesses with multiple locations in real time, instead of having to have a license for each location.

The company will answer any questions that you have until you have all of the answers that you need.

The product is very easy to use and does everything you need it to do, plus lots more! The support team and very helpful, have never let us down if we needed a question answered on something tweaked and their response time is brilliant (and that's with a 5 hour difference in time zones)

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product. You won't be disappointed you teamed up with this great company.

As we purchased the business a year ago, we are adjusting to the product to how we do business. So we have had a few learning curves. John and his staff have been very helpful with our learning curve.

Touch of the button reporting is nice, just select the report information, the date range and hit the button. It's all right there.

I absolutely made the BEST decision when I chose SBS Solutions for my consignment software...that is the 100% truth. It's easy to navigate and the reports are what really helps me. I've had to call John several times when I accidentally disconnected my computer and every time he walks us through connecting it again with such patience and ease.

I recommend this software to anyone who wants to open their own consignment shop. I'm very fortunate to have made this selection!!

Alison purchased this printer prior to us adding it to our list of supported printers. This is the TSC-TDP-247 Tag Printer which we do now support. I called Alison to let her know and she was delighted.

When we started our consignment business in 2011 I spent a lot of time searching for a POS and inventory management solution specifically designed for consignment shops. We selected TCS by SBS Solutions and we couldn't be more pleased. The software is easy to install and use, is regularly updated with new features and functions and, this is the best part, the support is fantastic. If help is needed it's just a phone call away. They know their software and they know the consignment shop business.

I did my homework, I checked all the stores similar to mine in the area, and on the mainland to see what everyone was using. I was able to discern that there were about 3 programs people seemed to be using. The best advice I got was to check out SBS Solutions. I googled the 3 different programs, and I googled SBS Solutions and read the reviews and loved that they had 24/7 SUPPORT! That was the biggest thing for me as I have a brain injury and was afraid I would not know how to use any given program and would need help. I phoned them and talked to John and he was sooooo nice. He explained everything to me, I bought the program and they have helped me every step of the way to grow my business! They train you at the beginning for several hours and it was so simple to use I couldn't believe it! There is also help on the program you can look up at any time. I found the quality of the cash drawer and printers to be above what I was expecting. I am so glad I trusted the reviews of this program and went with them. They don't push you at all to buy, just inform you, and I can't stress this enough: I am also glad I bought the whole package instead of trying to find everything myself! I have not had any problems with my program or printers/scanner in over a year of use. I can call them anytime and they are there to help me and I live in Hawaii and the time difference is crazy! They always answer or call me right back. I can only say I am so HAPPY I found SBS Solutions and these wonderful people to help me build the best business I can! They are amazing!

We have been a TCS user for 4 years - from the pre start-up of our business until today. We have found the software to be an excellent tool in managing all aspects of our consignment business and our customers are delighted with the level of service we can provide in managing their accounts. The most noteworthy experience is the high standard of service we receive from SBS Solutions in the few occasions in which minor issues have arose. I would like to highlight that our business is locate in Eastern Australia so the delivery of timely assistance is no small accomplishment! We would recommend this solution without reservation. The SBS Solutions team are a pleasure to do business with.

I am coming up on ten years of Caroline's Children's Consignment Boutique! People ask me a lot what the secret is to my success because there have been many consignment stores come and go, and my response is always the software we use, great customer service and lots of post it notes. John Breidling and his staff are hands down the best support system for me and my shop! They are always there for me! The software is so easy to learn from. I looked at several ones when I started Carolines and SBS solutions was the best one out there. It literally does everything for me from inventory to reports to posting checks. It does it all. I highly recommend it for anyone shopping for software whether they are opening a consignment business or just looking for a change!!
