With either form of consignment software (web or PC) the steady flow of money from shops to sellers of software takes the form of additional charges after purchase: endless monthly outlay, copies of the software, number of users and locations, prepaid support...
In recent years consignment-software vendors have attempted to push 'software as a service' as justification for collecting ongoing never-ending monthly cost for using their software. Grand for their profits. Not so much for consignment stores. When their software users stop paying, the software stops working.
A little-known potential cost of monthly-pay software is future increases in the payment amount. Last checked, there are no disclosures on any website (offering pay-as-you-go programs) there is no discussion or disclosure regarding this hidden expense.
Best Consignment Software is 1-pay consignment, resale (buy outright), retail
and space rental in one software with inventory, customer and employee management, POS (point of sale), settlement and card processing, printing, accounting and reporting.
Web-Based Consignment Software
'Cloud' software resides on a remote 'server' (computer) and is controlled by the software provider. The consignment program stops working when your Internet, the Internet itself or the host's connection to the WWW fails. Moreover there is no protection from 'hacking'.
Computer-Based Consignment Software
Secure consignment software installs on your computer(s) and remains under your control. No Internet connection is required. If/when the power goes out the program can continue to run on any computer having a backup power supply (like laptops).
You own 'Best Consignment Shop Software'. Other vendors sell a 'license to use' their software. A 'software lease' is just another version of forever expense.
Credit-Card Processing Use any card service with BCSS, even on your cell phone. You are not required to use a service that we recommend.
The #1 simple and easy all-in-1 solution is Best Consignment Software - Since 2002, one investment for life-time use with no monthly or annual costs - optional or otherwise. Splendid! Ask about professional software packages, specials, discounts, financing and lease purchases.
