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 trackin...

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.

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.

ThriftCart helped us double our sales!

With precise and real time metrics, we are able to isolate the poor performing areas of our store. This has been a huge benefit to us! We also run sales frequently. Our ThriftCart system allows us to easily choose which discount applies to which area. Even our non-techy employees found ThriftCart easy to use!

Pros

We love the ability to run reports and see in real-time where our sales are. We have completely transformed our thrift store that provides financial support to our local rescue mission and shelters. When ThriftCart was implemented, we started changing our pricing and emphasis based on highest and lowest sales over the past three months. We've been able to double our sales over this same time period last year!

Cons

The only issue we have found is with returns. We do not process returns often as we are a thrift store. However, we do offer returns on electronics and for special situations. If the customer doesn't have a receipt and it's been more than two days we have found it challenging to process their returns. This is the only issue we have found at all.

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.

Great Customer Service: from start to finish

We were looking for a cloud-based POS system that was cost effective and came with great product support. We got everything we had hoped for!

Pros

The developer is willing to customize the user interface to meet our needs, creating functionality as the need arose.

Cons

Initially certain functionality wasn't present, but the developer added what we needed. And we asked for quite a few things.

Reasons for Choosing ThriftCart

Better price and better customer support (great people to work with)
