Pros

I liked that it was pretty easy to set up, you didn't have to have a ton of knowledge and the technology area to be able to get started.

Cons

The product was quechee, and it didn't integrate as we were told it was going to with some of our other items.

A Simpler Point-of-Sale for Consignment and Resale Businesses

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

We switched from a major POS after four years and have been pleased with the decision. The software does what is advertised, and support is responsive and friendly. We've already recommended this software to other resale shops.

Pros

Product is straight forward; setup and training has been easier than compared to competitor product. It has 'just what we need' for a smaller-scale resale business with one location and no full-time back office staff. Converting from the competitor was made easy by the tech staff who are friendly and knowledgeable. Tech has been responsive to support tickets, and their ticked system allows you to specify the urgency. The data connection to Quickbooks works well but is limited to payouts. Online videos and a good user manual are easily available for training and reference. Cloud-based data and Software as a Service means reduced technology demands on small business.

Cons

Because tag styles are tied to product categories, we are unable to easily print two tag types for jewelry (one for display to customer, one for butterfly tag on merchandise.) The online manual is great for 90% of needs; not all features are fully documented, especially for users who like to know the boundaries of what a product can do. Cloud-based does rely on a steady internet connection; this is not a major obstacle in 2018, and the benefits of hosting outweigh the challenges of storing the data in the local store.

I've used this product for 3+ years. Love it!! I've been in business for almost 14 years and switched from a company based out of FL that was horrendous, but the best available at the time. This software company has been a lifesaver to my business and I am so grateful to have found them. My customers have noticed and love the change!!

Pros

Extremely easy to use
If (and rarely) would you need support these guys/gals are the best and enjoyable to talk to.
IT guy who? I no longer need one
You can search your system to find out what you priced a similar item before and then just click "Add Similar" to quickly add that item.
Love the accessibility of the software on my phone using their app. Easy to keep track of multiple stores
I can track my customers shopping habits several different ways
Customers are always amazed at how I can search my store's inventory at any given time for Raiders, Grandma, Grandpa, Dr. Seuss or currently Paw Patrol items.
Makes doing returns extremely easy
End of day closing/balancing of books is easy
I love being able to print one to a hundred tags at a time
There is a credit card processing company associated with them although I don't use it as I am still loyal to my processor from years earlier.
Plain & Simple: just good people running a good business for people working hard like you & me.

Cons

To make it perfect: Seriously feel like I'm living in the early 90's with all my post-it notes for different people wanting/looking for certain items and wanting a call when I get them in. A way to help me keep track of some sort or "Wanted Items" and then when I entered that item it would alert me that "so & so" is looking for that item would be SWEET!!
There's not great loyalty program linked with this (still using an outside source that I'm extremely happy with)

The initial sales people were honest, courteous and very helpful. The support team is also very helpful, courteous and patient!!

Pros

Ease of use, functionality, support, simplicity, capabilities, browser based!! (love that I can access at home also!) This is a thoroughly superb program that has the consignor/consignee business in mind!! The support is excellent and they will take the time to explain their answer so that I have a thorough understanding and will explain different options, if needed. I am so happy with this program and can't imagine my business without it!!

Cons

Just a few minor things. I wish the reports were a little easier to compile, but that is probably a user issue!! Wish the reports could print my business name on them. Maybe something you can add in the future?

We are a small family run Artisan Gallery & Consignment Store, we had been looking at all types of POS systems for our business. We had looked at at least 10 different systems until we finally found SimpleConsign. When we looked into it, not only were they reasonably priced since we were just starting out we didn't have a huge budget and had all of the features we could ever need plus a few more we have found ourselves using. On top of detailed sales tracking and inventory, you can integrate with QuickBooks, you can get all types of reports for taxes, market research, and quite a few we haven't even tried yet. The customer service is STELLAR, very friendly, always ready and willing to answer any question we might have, from the tiny ones about what a button does to technical problems. The system is web based, so we don't ever have to worry loosing our information because most of it is stored in the cloud, so if your power goes out more than likely you won't lose your work, in my experience. I would recommend this POS system to anybody.

Pros

Stellar customer service, easy to use, reasonable price, compatibility, lots of features.

Cons

Could be confusing at times, but customer service is always willing to help.

Advice to Others

If you're on a budget or new to using your own POS system for your business, these guys are the place to go.

Overall, easy to use, reliable, user-friendly(when you learn how to make it work for your specific environment).

Customer Support is friendly. Would have been rated 5-stars, but I feel more attention needs to be given before Update rollouts. Perhaps a beta group of real users would help.

Pros

Easy to use.

Cons

In many cases, the user is required to do functions that the software should do. i.e. Place the cursor in the entry field/box.

Try it, you'll love it and so will your consignors!

I love this software very much but I wish the reporting were better, for starters. I know you can generate reports but it could be much more user friendly in that regard. I would also really appreciate being able to customize price tags. Right now I have to generate a report, export to CSV, edit in excel, then upload into Avery so I can customize the template how I see fit. So many extra steps. Aside from that, everything works really well. It is so handy to know exactly what to pay consignors and keep track of inventory. I haven't used all of the software yet but slowly I am learning all the tricks and I really like it. Thanks!

I have had this system for about 9 months. Sometimes I think it is too much program for what I need, but I can use just what I do need and it is really efficient. The support staff has been wonderful and always call back in a timely manner. I will say that when I was looking to buy the system, they said they may be able to tweak something to accommodate my store. In my county the tax rate can be odd. I have asked a few times and they don't want to fix it. So if it isn't exactly the way you need it, don't count on them changing it for you. But overall I love it and it has been easy to train other people on.

Pros

SimpleConsign truly is simple

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

We are a nonprofit that owns and operates two thrift stores. Some of our merchandise, mostly furniture, is consigned. SimpleConsign allows us to track our consigned inventory and run a variety of reports to help us make informed decisions about how much to consign. We could track all of our donated inventory if we felt it worth the manpower. Most staff can learn the system in just a couple of uses and the back office feature is handy for our remote admin location.

Pros

I like the ease of use and the broad range of reports SimpleConsign offers.

Cons

There are a few specific tasks we would like the system to do, like assign split to merchandise based on entry date. We revised our consignment contract and changed the store/consignor split and it had to apply to every piece of consigned merchandise, rather than just those brought in under the new contract.

Advice to Others

Definitely know your priorities before making a final decision. The tech team is open to building new features, so don't hesitate to make your requests, too.

We have been using Traxia's SimpleConsign for 13 months. We searched for a software program that would fit our unique situation. We looked at this program a few years ago and after looking again thought we could make it work. Much to our delight, it has worked even better than anticipated. Being on the internet and paying a monthly fee is a real plus. The Traxia staff is constantly working to improve and change the program. We sell a lot of handmade jewelry and recently our tags were changed from reading and entering a SKU number to scanning a barcode. This was our dream wish. We could not be happier with the system and the folks at Traxia. They are a wonderful group of very dedicated people. Thank you for your excellent program.

Pros

The ability to have a bar code on our jewelry products reduces the number of human entry errors during the selling process. The on line product allows updating to be done without inconveniencing our staff. Requesting updating and getting it without paying additional fees.

Cons

If our internet goes down, we are unable to process sales. If this happens, we do it the old fashioned way and enter in the computer later.

Advice to Others

Consider your individual situation and how your store is run. Our's has a two layered consignment system with 25 craft clubs that participate. It is a complicated system and standard software would not work. We adapted and can now produce reports for our individual consignors and clubs. Keep an open mind and think outside the box for solutions to you own individual needs. Talk to the people at Traxia and ask direct questions. They are very helpful.

Simple Consign is by far the best consignment software on the market. I tried several softwares before going with Simple Consign and I saw first-hand how difficult some of them can be and how inefficient using software that is not web-based can be. I love that Simple Consign is constantly updating and improving their software and I don't have to do a thing!

The ability to access it from anywhere and the customer support has been as helpful as they possibly can without being onsite to see how the shop is ran.

The fact that the consignment totals include every sold item regardless of their expiration date since i have many consignors that have multiple end dates and I only pay out what is due at the end of the 90 days not before. I do not pay on demand. Also the inventory list does not give enough info when trying to tell a consignor what they have sold with out clicking on each item which it is easy to lose your place when you go back to the list. The activity log does not show item #s of sold items and you have to click on each item to see what it sold which is not convenient.

I am sure it is fine for shops that pay on demand.

I like that this product is cloud based. Our Internet was out but I was able to pull the pos software up on my phone in order to process transactions. I like the detail you can put in regards to the products as well as the customers and consignors.

Likes Least

There are two things I like least and hope for growth with this product. First, how we enter items is detailed but time consuming if you want to keep track of certain things within inventory. There are so many steps, buttons and things to enter it is easy to skip steps in order to be faster for our customers. Second, the reporting within the product could be better. I would like to have a clear report of inventory for a certain date range.

Recommendations

If you want a program that is detailed but easy and one that you can access anywhere online, this is the product you want.

Pros

Consignors/Vendors can log in and add inventory, check their sales, monitor activity. Customer support is excellent.

Cons

Reporting is complicated and I'm not sure that I am prepared to survive an audit. In the end, I cancelled 10+ days prior to our billing cycle and was charged for an extra month I didn't need. They discounted it to a lower plan. i didnt plan on spending. Of course this is disclosed in their paperwork and within their rights, but it sits wrong with me.

Reliable easy to use system with great customer support. Will definitely use again.

Pros

Pros: Ease of use - with initial help from Simple Consign's team, the system is super easy to use. They also have good documentation. I have had questions about the reports, but again, all my questions were answered and the reporting functionality is exactly what we needed.

Reliability - with our entire budget resting on a one-day sale, having a system that's reliable was crucial. Working with their team, we built in a back-up system of wi-fi redundancy, but fortunately didn't need it. Not once did we have a problem with our internet, or the service.

Customer service - the Simple Consign team patiently answered all my questions. And our big event was on the weekend, so they noted it on their calendar and prepared their tech support staff for my call, just in case. Didn't need any help. The system worked beautifully.

Cons

Cons: Wish it was easier to email people from the system. I'd like to be able to send an email prior to the swap to all the consignors in the system. This means exporting all the users and emailing from another system. Not as easy as it seems it should be. I'd also like to be able to send a system wide email giving people access to the consignment portal, but deciding whether or not I want to reset everyone's password. Currently it automatically resets. Seems like it could be more flexible here.

less paper work, more control

Pros

The fact that I have alot of control on the inventory, and the consignors. I love that we can check on items that go in Grace, or have become inactive. Feels like we have a better handle on the inventory and the consignors.

Cons

The cost for two shops that do the same thing, I think we should get a break on cost. We started with one store and bought another that was also using simple consign , We asked and the answer was NO, however its the same thing ... Also the sales tax is hard to figure out, because of the different rates. I asked about it and was told that it was in consideration.. never heard bck

Converted items show on customer accounts when sold. New Merchandise inventory is very time consuming with this system. Inventory control levels are useless. Scanning bar codes on new merchandise at checkout has to be searched instead of entered automatically like system generated skus. No payout option for vendors like consignors. Unable to pull vendor inventory reports without being pretty creative. It's fine for now but we will have to make a switch soon to a system that saves us time on new merchandise items acvtivity. Would like for lawaway to be more structured as far as weekly bi weekly and monthly instead of one option only.

Much easier to inventory and check customers out. Much easier to manage consignor's sales and payouts than anything other software I researched. Also the fact that it's web based eliminates many reliability issues that can effect other similar systems. Much easier to track sales and trends throughout the day, month and year.

Pros

I love the bar coded price tag system that allows the consignor to enter their items into their inventory themselves. Love the bar code price tags (much more accurate and faster checkout process). Love the online account for the consignors to monitor sales. Love that it is a web based system so we don't have to rely on an in house computer (that could crash). Love that the software is accessible anywhere. This feature is particularly helpful for the business owner who has the capability to check sales reports, etc.. when not at the store.

Cons

There really needs to be a Simple Consign iPhone app both for the Consignors and for the business owner. The current system is only accessible through an internet browser on a cell phone (which limits the size of the pages size and is also very slow). A cell phone app would be very helpful especially when introducing the system to a new consignor.
It would also be nice to be able to set a discount on a consignors account (by the day and by the hour) instead of just by the day. It would also be nice if items that are entered into inventory by the consignor would have the exact time they were entered for each item and it wold also be nice if the items that have had the tags printed out were able to be marked somehow so that we could tell were a consignor left off when entering and printing out there tags. When a consignor pulls out: it would be nice if there was a way to classify that consignor as "inactive". It would be nice if consignors who are currently in the store are classified as "active" and those not in the store are inactive. Would also be nice if there was a way to email all of the "active" consignors at once through the software or Cell Phone App (if there was one). When looking up a Sales Report or a Transactions stat it would be nice to have a "Today" button that would take you straight to todays sales and transactions instead of having to go in and pick the beginning date off the pop up calendar and then pick the ending date off the popup calendar. The Cost.

One centralized system that helps us track sales by day, department, month, just about any criteria we can think of.

Pros

Ease of use. I am confident that new cashiers will learn how to use this system in a very short time. I also appreciate the back office feature since our bookkeeping is done at a different location that our stores.

Cons

There are a couple of custom reports I would like that are not yet offered. I would like to be able to search consignors by organization, too.

What I like most is the ability to use from anywhere, online. I like that software enables us to automatically change consignor percentages as sale price drops: this has made a huge difference to our bottom line.

Cons

What I like least is that you have to use the mouse more than I would like: the previous software I used rarely required use of the mouse so we could tab through fields quickly for faster processing, or just enter a letter to pick corresponding status, or payment method or other, instead of clicking mouse. However, I would never go back to the previous software we used. This software has so many more pluses and more flexibility.

Pros

Selling artwork by over 100 individuals makes getting everything into the inventory easy on a consignment basis. Web based is a huge plus as we attend craft fairs and farmer's markets and I can ring up sales away from the brick and mortar store.

Cons

I would appreciate more detailed reports per terminal, such as splitting transactions and sold inventory per terminal.
I loved the user history that we had at beginning but that has been disconnected

Pros

I love how easy it was to implement- took no time at all. Any changes we need to make can be made in less than a minute. Support is quick to respond, even when case isn't marked urgent. Our vendors love the consignor access fee.

Cons

We do booth rentals, so very little of our items are put in as inventory in the system before checkout. (Meaning a slow checkout process.) I wish we could buy the basic service outright, then pay for monthly things likes consignor access.

Pros

The user friendliness of it. There are so many options and features. It is also very easy to teach others to use

Cons

Sometimes I have tech issues, such as the Edna printer disconnecting and causing me to need to restart the computer. Sometimes my Citizen printer goes "offline" over night. Neither are a big deal, just inconvenient.

SimpleConsign is great because I can use it at on any computer and my phone - so when I am on vacation, I can still access all the information about sales and inventory while my assistant is at the shop

Cons

Occasionially it is slow because the internet is slow, but that is very infrequent. I really don't have anything else bad to say about it.

The ease of using the software. It is very simple and not complicated at all. The ability to have pre-set sale dates is our favorite feature!

Cons

There are some functions that we wish the software had, that it just doesn't yet. I also wish there was an app that I could use as an owner to log-in and check on reports/sales.

Ease of compiling and reviewing data, inventory management, better overall experience for consignors, more fool proof for employees.

Pros

The direct customer interface is wonderful. Aside from eliminating most consignor check-in calls, a nice unexpected result is that I can price items at my discretion without a consignor looking over my shoulder. It is exceedingly rare for a consignor to call back and quibble over prices with almost always happnes in person.

Cons

The price is a bit more than I'd like, I have several friends who run small consignment shops that cant talk themselves into the price. Some of the reports and inventory searches could be cleaned up.

Pros

The Traxia team works hard to keep new features rolling out, continually asking for input from their subscribers. Because the software was built to be web-based, their are rarely little problems that must be patched and if there are patches, we don't even see them. They take care of everything so I can run my store without worrying about my software. However, what I like most about the software is the entire Traxia Team, they truly care, they support our industry and contribute to it.

Cons

I'm ready for the software to allow me to pay consignors across all locations without moving money from one store to another. We love the store credit across all locations feature. Now waiting on the pay across all locations feature.
