need consignment and listing software - please help
7 Jun 2009
so i'm pretty lost...i used Laris about 4 years ago and was 95% satisfied with it. i just opened a new consignment shop independent from the previous shops, and now i'm lost since i can't get laris!

so...what do you suggest? here are the simple things i need:

consignment system
single page listing
low cost, prefer monthly instead of one big fee (shoestring budget)

those are my main concerns, and then obviously the more it can do the better. i am just trying to figure out the most cost-effective way to get this done. i am a new shop in a pretty small town and it's just me and the wife so not a very large operation. however, i have barely opened doors (secured retail location 2 days ago) and i've already had to list 32 items and have a good 20 unlisted items sitting in my shop. i'd say i'll be doing at least 100 items per month.

please help, thank you!

oh yeah, and listing to multiple channels would be nice, not just ebay

all these things like inkFrog and what not seem to not have a consignment system and are just listing software...am i correct with that?

Hi neller.

Well, Laris is based on Kyozou, so you could try Kyozou.

Some of the mainstream auction management solutions do support consignment selling, but might not have very in-depth features in that area. You could look at one of the consignment specialist solutions.

Yeah I don't need very in-depth systems...I'm just a small simple shop. I just need something that has a consignment feature. Even if it can just track who owns each item somehow.

Does Vendio have consignment features?

well, no offense to bill there at Vendio, but i'm now way more confused than i was prior to him contacting me. is anyone using the "old" vendio system and can possibly explain to me the difference? i thought i had found my golden egg with vendio, but now that i have to go to the old system for consignment features i'm not sure. maybe i just didn't get it...not sure. if anyone has any comments about the old vendio system please advise on how you like it.
