About ThriftCart

ThriftCart is a point of sale system designed with thrift stores and reuse stores in mind. ThriftCart can help increase revenue by prompting customers for round-up donations, which is particularly effective for non-profit thrift stores. ThriftCart allows for color-based discounts to help move your merchandise more quickly, give customers good value, and get the best price. ThriftCart can work for both small and large thrift stores, including thrift stores with multiple locations. ThriftCart is designed to be easy enough for a volunteer cashier to learn in minutes, but robust enough to provide all the tools you need to run your thrift store. ThriftCart also has additional optional modules like a donation pickup scheduling tool, a drop-off donation tracking tool, and...

Done Better

Before using ThriftCart about 80% of my time was spent scheduling donation pickups. Now that is about 40% (depending on time of year). Prior to using ThriftCart we were using an email for donors to request pick-ups which required a lot of back and forth communication. ThriftCart allows donors to go online and request specific dates and times which eliminates the back and forth. While I still have to monitor all the incoming requests, and regularly call some donors to ask questions, it is still a big time saver.

Pros

Ease of use, intuitive functionality and customization.

Cons

ThriftCart has a few navigational quirks which can only be learned by using, but once you've had some time with it they are easily overcome.

Reasons for choosing ThriftCart

We spent 6 months with Vonigo trying to set up a simple scheduling program for our donation pick-up service and they still couldn't make it do what we wanted. It took ThriftCart about a month to get us operational. One of the best aspects of ThriftCart for me is being able to set up a geographic area to my specifications so we can maximize efficiency, and reduce wasted time and fuel. Within 1 hour of examining ThriftCart I was ready to sign up.

Response from Nabadab

I'm glad ThriftCart is able to save you so much time with donation pickup scheduling! I know it's tricky for a lot of thrift stores and reuse stores to manage donation pickup scheduling, and I'm glad ThriftCart was a time-saver for you! Keep up the good work!

Everything we need in one spot!

Very easy to use and very responsive support when needed.

Pros

So many functions available with the same program. The software has been very customizable.

Cons

No downfalls only wish is that we could integrate even more functions like volunteer tracking, build schedule and volunteer events and maybe donor data base but not all programs can do everything!

Reasons for choosing ThriftCart

Thrift cart offered more features like sending surveys and our scheduling systems so we do not need to combine multiple reports when gathering customer information.

Reasons for switching to ThriftCart

Thrift cart was more user friendly.

Response from Nabadab

Thanks Erin! We love having you as a customer! I'm also very happy that you want to have more functions inside of ThriftCart. I'm always looking for new useful features for customers, so I certainly appreciate your input.

Price and Performance

Reports and inventory are a breeze. Simple to use and yet complex where needed.

Pros

ThriftCart is very easy to use, customizable to our stores needs. Good customer support. Tutorials are easy to follow.

Cons

Because it is Web Based, if you are having a problem with the internet you are unable to access data. However you always have the option to go on your phone to access information in a pinch.

Reasons for switching to ThriftCart

Inventory tracking was a continuous problem. Another problem was crashing of the system which we rarely get now.

Thriftcart

Pros

Ease of use, truck routing, simple cash register operations.

Cons

Inventory management needs to be easier to update prices/cost when needed. Sometimes difficult to get an item to show an on hand in the system.

Response from Nabadab

Thanks for the review, Gregg! I'm glad you find it easy to use overall. I'll be reaching out via e-mail to address your concerns on inventory management of purchased product items!

Ease of use for all ages.

Customer service is excellent and I've been so impressed with their lightning-fast responses. We are pleased with our decision to deploy ThriftCart for our secondhand shop--no regrets.

Pros

Easy to use, visual software has been a breeze to implement in our new thrift store. Most users are retired volunteers who have had no problems learning to use ThriftCart. Haven't used all the features available but they're available to us if we decide to expand.

Cons

Printing reports is not easy since there is no inherent print feature--must screenshot reports. And Quickbooks integration would be a dream since most nonprofits/small businesses use QBO.
